JET Dope ass album. Mono/Poly is a talented producer with so much room to grow. I was sold after Golden Skies and this album doesn't disappoint. Favorite track: The Fuckin' Real.

Daniel Hoernecke The Flying Lotus touch is apparent on this album, it's very easy to listen to and get into. Shapeshifter reminds me of John Klemmers Third Stone From the Sun, and Free Soul. I'm a new fan of Mono/Poly but I'm very excited to see what he brings us in the future Favorite track: Crypto Bell.

Charles E. Dickerson, better known by his stage name MONO/POLY, is an electronic music producer from Bakersfield, California, and now residing in Los Angeles. MONO/POLY joined Flying Lotus’ record label Brainfeeder in 2011 and released his debut EP “Manifestations”, plus the glorious “Golden Skies” LP in Summer 2014.

The much anticipated follow-up is MONO/POLY's 2016 musical offering, "Cryptic" [HNR58], a nine-track EP of sterling sound design. The dense yet dynamic 30-minute album is predominated by MONO/POLY's striking instrumental productions, with exception of the stunner "Nocturne", which features the haunting vocals of Seven Davis Jr. (and guest bass by Thundercat).

Available on limited-edition marbled green 12" vinyl i (only 400qty pressed) and housed in a screenprinted cardboard jacket, as well as digital downloads worldwide. Bandcamp & iTunes digital versions come with the exclusive BONUS TRACK "B Life."
