[dropcap size=big]M[/dropcap]ono/Poly has been tearing up the Los Angeles beat scene's space-time continuum since the early days, releasing records on Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder, and playing wild shows at Low End Theory. His sound has mutated and evolved many times but retains the hallmarks that made him such a standout from the beginning-- deep bass, chonky funk, and futuristic space jams that transport the mind and the body at warp speed.

Originally from Bakersfield, Charles Dickerson AKA Mono/Poly moved to Los Angeles in the early 2000's, and shortly thereafter was collaborating with folks like Ras G, Thundercat, and Flying Lotus. A member of the HIT + RUN collective, he's developed deep roots in the L.A. scene while steadily releasing music under his own label or others.

The latest album from Mono/Poly is called Monotomic, and it's out on July 26th via NAYMLIS Records. The 13-track LP features Kaytranda, Kimbra, Thundercat, Alyss, and more. Tracklisting below. Before we leave you to the music, we had a quick question for Mono/Poly — what's your favorite taco?

"I prefer burritos lol, Pacheco's Cater Craft Foods (the California burrito), does that work??" he replied.

Works for us! Listen to the first single from the album using the player above, or click here for the YouTube link.
