Hear Mono/Poly Summon the Sun on Beatwise ‘Ra Rise’
Brainfeeder producer shares a cut from his 'Golden Skies' album
Bakersfield-bred producer Mono/Poly was born to be on Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder label. Just listen to those lush electronic burbles, atmospheric hum, unexpected melodies, and clattering percussion on “Ra Rise” below. That new song from the California artist otherwise known as Charles Dickerson is imbued with the same combination of wide-eyed wonder and weeded exploration that results such spirit-imbued sonic missives as Thundercat’s Apocalypse, Matthewdavid’s In My World, Ras G’s Back on the Planet, or FlyLo’s Until the Quiet Comes. On August 26, Mono/Poly will add his own full-length to that immense oeuvre — Golden Skies. If it’s half as gorgeous as what we’ve got here — thanks in no small part to the vocals of Niki Randa — we’re looking at a gleaming horizon ahead indeed.
