Moniquea was born in Gary, Indiana and raised in Pasadena, California. Growing up, she was exposed to countless volumes of 70’s soul and the electrified musical production of the 80’s. These sounds shaped her own music immeasurably. In particular, the synthesized, dance-friendly aesthetics of new wave and funk-laden R&B aka boogie, made a lasting impression on her, which she seeks to distill and reinterpret in the music she creates today.
XL Middleton is another Californian whose format falls into the funk-laden style the region has traditionally been known for. The Pasadena-based artist/producer has been hard at work for years crafting melodic, chord-heavy tunes and catering to fans of the funked-out West Coast sound. More at MoFunk Records.
Disko Obscura will be here, too, with a special DJ set.
