Los Angeles’ Ross Harris is a frequent collaborator with Stones Throw, having directed videos for Aloe Blacc or Mayer Hawthorne. His latest video is for Mndsgn’s “Camelblues”, a track taken from his Yawn Zen album released only a couple of weeks ago.
As mentioned before, Los Angeles’ beatsmith Mndsgn released his debut on Stones Throw following a series of beat tapes. I’m still undecided whether I’m going to grab myself a copy on vinyl or if the Spotify stream does it for me, but it’s certainly a record that deserves a couple of listens. If you haven’t had a chance to listen to Yawn Zen, this new video by PBDY might be a good starting point.
Not too long ago, Los Angeles-based producer Mndsgn released Breatharian on friendly blog and label Fresh Selects. Fast forward nine months and he landed a deal with Stones Throw to release his new album Yawn Zen. My first impression is, that it sounds an awful lot like an old Dimlite record, maybe even a bit too much at times. But then again, that’s not exactly an awful thing, especially while still waiting for the Dim Grimm “debut album” to arrive.
Well, you can listen to the Yawn Zen in full on Spotify. It’s available on all sorts of formats via Bleep, HHV and just about every other good record store on Planet Earth.
