RIYL: J Dilla, 9th Wonder, Madlib

Label: DLoaw & Co. Records

If you dig the beats more than¬†the bars, it’s time you met Mounika, French producer and sampling wizard. ¬†Mounika pays respect to sweeping orchestra arrangements and the classic chanteuse over trap beats and¬†Clam Casinos, resulting in tracks¬†that sound as vintage as they sound fresh¬†(see Lupe Fiasco’s Daydreamin‘ or Murs’ D.S.W.G.). ¬†Picture √Čdith Piaf and J Dilla smoking spliffs and sipping espressos in a hideaway studio in the country and you’ll get a track like¬†De Roses Et De Colombes.

How Are You?¬†marks¬†the first full-length in Mounika’s career that’s been cut to wax, and¬†DLoaw & Co. Records have 500 copies of the album on white vinyl after the ‘buy’ link. ¬†Check out two tracks off the forthcoming album on Bandcamp as well as 2016’s Seagulls on Spotify below.
