Mndsgn (pronounced Mind Design), born Ringgo Ancheta grew up in south New Jersey raised with Gospel music at church, B-Boy culture, and his older sisters’ favorite R&B artists like SWV, TLC, Brandy and Monica. He began experimenting with beat making when he was 14, before befriending fellow producer Knxwledge. The two would eventually go on to form the influential Klipmode collective. Mndsgn’s music flourished when he moved to Los Angeles, quickly catching the attention of Low End Theory as well as Stones Throw, who released Yawn Zen (2014), a LP of complex, introspective beat creations punctuated by intriguing vocal cuts. Mndsgn then toured the globe, co­found Akashik Records & Tapes, and provided the beat for “Sweeny Song”, a high profile collaboration with underground rap superstar Danny Brown. With a hectic year behind him, Mndsgn has released his sophomore LP, B​ody Wash (2016) from Stones Throw. Body Wash was selected as one of the best electronic albums of 2016 by the US music media, Pitchfork. In 2018, he released a new mix-tape album “Snax” as well as produced for a veteran funk artist: Prophet’s full album “Wanna Be Your Man”. In 2019, planning to release “Snax Vol.2” in Spring and also an anticipated full album later.
