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 Lotusï¿½ record label Brainfeeder in 2011 and released his debut EP ï¿½Manifestationsï¿½, plus the glorious ï¿½Golden Skiesï¿½ LP in Summer 2014. Comes on limited-edition marbled green 12" vinyl (in two distinct color ways - only 200qty of each pressed!) and housed in a hand-screenprinted cardboard jacket. Check!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).
