production from xl middleton. just in time for the summer, moniquea is back with a future glass house staple entitled “all the time.” riding thick, squiggly production from xl middleton, modern funk’s first lady delivers declarations of dominance that might make you want to stand up, pop and lock, or have a seat and slam dominoes on the table top. the b-side, “his lady,” is a future roller skate staple featuring an instrumental culled from the mid 2000’s vaults of xl middleton. the track still sounds fresh nearly a decade and a half later thanks to moniquea’s timeless songwriting and silky delivery.
moniquea established herself as one of the foremost female artists in the modern funk scene with her 2014 mofunk records debut album yes no maybe. for her followup, she continues exploring and expanding upon the boogie/modern soul sound of her debut, and at the same time, ventures bravely into a new sound inspired by the new wave and synthpop sounds of the 80’s. thus, the album title: blackwavefunk.
