Learn about the creative process behind the music and production of Mndsgn.
This workshop will be held prior to the Mndsgn with The Rare Pleasures + Omari Jazz concert at Holocene. RSVP at the link below.
Mndsgn, aka Ringgo Ancheta, was born in San Diego, raised in the southern region of New Jersey, and is currently based in Los Angeles. The youngest of four in a family of Filipino descent, Ringgo grew up in a household where the love and appreciation for music was always synonymous. Self discovery began with illustrating the world through drawing and b-boying which then evolved into a deeper appreciation for music as his older brother introduced him to rap music and beat production at a pivotal age.
From early on, Ringgo has aimed to explore the human condition in his music. Taken as a whole, his body of work chronicles the evolution of self, asking throughout: how can we live in a way that is true to ourselves? How can we find beauty in the everyday and unfamiliar?
In the fall of 2018, Ringgo began building on dreams and sketches of songs that would later form new record Rare Pleasure. Rare Pleasure brings together the music that has inspired MNDSGN over the years — R&B, soundtrack music, psychedelia and jazz — into a rich, expansive record.
