ARTIST PROFILE | MONO/POLY
In defying the laws of tradition, Los Angeles based music producer Mono/Poly (born Charles Dickerson) has managed to outstrip the logics of multi genre producing. Known for his distinct madness of face melting bass, paired with his dreamy astral soundscapes of glitch-based hip-hop, Mono/Poly has proved himself to be a natural phenomenon.
His debut album, The George Machine (EP) was released in the fall of 2009 on Faces Records, which was followed by his first full-length solo album Paramatma (Tasteful Licks) in the spring of 2010. In 2011, Mono/Poly released the Manifestations EP, making a strong debut on Brainfeeder Records, and it continues its heavy rotation being played by the likes of Radiohead, Erykah Badu and Jay Scarlett at BBC Radio’s 1XTRA. His most recent release is his anticipated full-length album Golden Skies, also released on Brainfeeder in the summer of 2014, and received with the same global recognition and praise we’ve come to expect from his projects.
Mono/Poly also appears on releases from Brainfeeder, Ninja Tune, Warp Records and Planet Mu, featured alongside fellow artists Flying Lotus and Nosaj Thing. His range has earned him a reputation as a revolutionary producer and gained him vast recognition among listeners and artists alike, yielding collaborations with the likes of Erykah Badu and Kendrick Lamar, both of whom will feature Mono/Poly's signature style and unparalleled grasp of melody and mayhem on upcoming albums.
