Mndsgn, aka Ringgo Ancheta, is a producer, beatmaker, and songwriter born in San Diego, raised in the southern region of New Jersey, and now currently based in Los Angeles.
Born in 1988, he grew up the youngest of four, in a family of Filipino descent. From childhood, he recollects the sounds of his father playing covers on the guitar, frequent visits to his uncle’s house whose garage was a rehearsal space for a local naval base cover band, watching his sisters learn choreography for school talent shows, attending local church revivals, delving into the art of bboying, self teaching piano on the household keyboard, and his big brother introducing him to rap music and beat production at a pivotal age. The love and joy of the music was always synonymous in the lifestyle of his family.
His inspiration, profoundly sourced from both the beauty and discomfort of the unfamiliar, tastefully illustrates the harmony coded in moments; His work, constantly shifting and evolving, exists as an effort to discover resolutions that can gravitate us closer to our truths.
