Mono/Poly - Monotomic (LP)
Originally from Bakersfield, CA, Charles moved to Los Angeles in the early 2000s and came up in the Low End Theory scene, a weekly beloved (now defunct) underground experimental/hip hop club night. His debut record, 'Paramatma' (Taseful Licks Records, 2010), introduced his unique perspective on electronic music seen through the lens of astral soundscapes, Eastern philosophy, metaphysics, and politics. This first release would pave the way for collaborations with Ras G, Thundercat, Flying Lotus and ultimately a record deal with Brainfeeder in 2011.
Since 2011, Mono/Poly has continued to steadily release music both collaboratively and solo, garnering praise from Pitchfork, Fader, the BBC, Stereogum, Resident Advisor, among others. Charles has also established himself as part of the respected print crew HIT + RUN; featured on Thundercat’s “Heartbreaks + Setbacks” (Apocalypse, 2013); produced music for Grand Theft Auto's soundtrack; contributed to Kendrick Lamar's surprise album ('untitled unmastered'); and launched a joint project with London-based vocalist, Alyss.

Order Processing Time
Online orders are processed within *3-4 business days or *7-9 business days depending on availability.
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, our shipping and processing times have been extended. Please note, we are still shipping and attending to customer service inquiries as per usual. Delays in supply chain, shorter fulfillment schedules, as well as extended processing from USPS have forced these delays for the time being. Thank you for your patience and business as we navigate these difficult times!
Order processing time is separate from shipping time requested.
We try and offer as many upcoming projects available for pre-order when the releases have moved into production. However, due to the nature of manufacturing and production, pre-order dates may change. If your pre-ordered items are holding your package from arriving please email us with a request to ship the in-stock items and pre-orders when they become available.
If your order contains pre-order items we will hold the package until all titles are available to ship. Please specify in the comments section of the checkout if you would like to: a) hold your entire order until it can be entirely fulfilled or, b) have the in-stock items shipped immediately and the pre-ordered items ship when available. Please note that option B may require additional shipping charges as multiple packages will be shipped.
Out of Stock Items
Our stock rapidly changes and we try and set in place a system that avoids purchasing items that become out of stock. However, if a product ordered is out of stock or on back-order, we will reach out and give you the chance to change or cancel your order. If you choose to cancel, you will be refunded in full.
All sales are final. However, if the item ordered is different from the item you receive, please contact us and we can arrange to get you the desired product.
