MIX: MONIQUEA “THAT WHOOP”

April 1st, 2020 | Listen

Onetime L.A. RECORD cover star Moniquea put out her Los Robles & Washington album on MoFunk last month—ten tracks of slick and sophisticated funk in its many glorious forms, built out with production and features from the Mofunk-and-friends wrecking crew. (Like L.A. RECORD alums XL Middleton and Zackey Force Funk, currently working on fulfilling some kind of cosmic destiny by making an album together.)

Los Robles is named for the Pasadena intersection where Moniquea grew up, and this seamlessly supersonic mix she’s made for us is its own journey from back then to right now. It’s all vinyl, of course, and including plenty of her contemporaries across the robust and vital modern funk scene—producers and vocalists both, from labels like Bastard Jazz and Star Creature. Says Moniquea:

“I wanted to make a mix that shows the type of music I’m creating and what other artists around me are doing as far as modern funk, and also show some of the influences that led me here—in this case g-funk with a dash of 90’s R&B. And that’s That Whoop!”
