 Producer Charles Dickerson, a.k.a. Mono/Poly, is a member of L.A.’s massively influential avant-hip-hop crew Brainfeeder whose cosmic beats have made fans out of Erykah Badu and members of Radiohead. On Aug. 26, he’ll release his third album, Golden Skies, which exemplifies Brainfeeder’s reputation for blending classic rap, soul, jazz, and funk into a warm, organic whole that sounds both intensely futuristic and deeply retro at the same time somehow.

Golden Skies features a number of guests, including Mendee Ichikawa of the group Free Moral Agents, who provides vocals on the track “Empyrean.” Working together, the pair conjures up a hazy trip-hop vibe with twinkling, detuned synthesizers that sound like interstellar communications from a group of very stoned aliens. You can preorder the album here.
