Sophomore full length from MNDSGN on Stones Throw. On Body Wash, The LA-based producer also known as Ringgo Ancheta takes inspiration from the sound of west coast r&b of days past. With cues from Kashif, Leon Sylvers III, and other 80's SOLAR greats, Mndsgn elevates his craft with full-on songs and arrangements, complete with vocals over the top. It's an impressive evolution and a fully reallized vision to things only hinted at on his debut, 2014's Yawn Zen. Mndsgn explains Body Wash as "a soul record that plays with nostalgic elements in a very dynamic & positive way. Think about it as a box of crayons for you to draw emotions with." Includes the jams "Searchin I," "Cosmic Perspective," "Ya Own Way," "Where Ever U R," "Alluptoyou" and more. Fans of Dam Funk, Toro Y Moi, Mild High Club, etc. need to cop this asap. Recommended.
