Mndsgn Sets The Table for New 'Snaxx' Tape with a Hazy Gem
The Stones Throw producer’s back with a feast in the bag.
Never one to step away for too long, Mndsgn has announced a new project, Snaxx, will arrive this summer. The follow-up to his self-released remix tape, Snax (one x,) takes structural cues from Stones Throw legacy, J Dilla, compiling a feast of instrumental morsels into a potent placeholder for his next studio album, due in 2020.
The lead single, “Deviled Eggs,” arrives alongside the announcement, offering a warm and warped glimpse at the menu. Snaxx also follows the 2018 collaborative album, Wanna Be Your Man, with cult boogie icon, Prophet, (the title track was flipped by Tyler, The Creator on “PEACH FUZZ.”) On his new album, the producer explains, “I think of all the posthumous Dilla leaks, and how I’ve always been just as, if not more inspired by the stuff that was never supposed to come out. Albums should be proper meals, but every now and then a snack can really hold you over.”
