Mndsgn’s Mysterious Past Is None of Your Business

 

Prolific underground producer Ringgo Ancheta is an enigma — and he’d like to keep it that way. Recorded as MNDSGN (i.e., “mind design”), Ancheta’s most recent release, Yawn Zen, is a haunting, shadowy distillation of soul, jazz, hip-hop, exotica, and electronics. The album is the outgrowth of Ancheta’s spirituality.

But it’s hard to say, as Ancheta refuses to talk about it. Read more at Wondering Sound…
