Mounika. – ailleurs (Soundcloud)

Ailleurs” lures you into a dreamy balance of light & dark with Mounika’s signature lofi hip hop beats.

About the artist:
« Mounika. comes from the American version of Godard’s film « à bout de souffle”.

The end scene accompanies the lead actress, Monica, to music by Phillip Glass – Opening. “This is the first track I wanted to learn on the piano,” Mounika.

Somewhere in the west of France, in a student’s room, the artist far from imagining the impact that his very first productions will have…

From a young age, Mounika. already had a passion for music, his great curiosity led him to try his hand at many instruments, eventually gravitating towards the piano. Years go by and as he explores the dense universe of electronic music, his thirst for novelty is constantly growing. Iconic artists such as Bonobo, Air, Moby and Wax Tailor were a great source of inspiration.

With musical production now an integral part of his life, Mounika.’s intention is to offer a dreamlike space, through his music, as his musical influences have done for him before. Mounika.’s inexhaustible creativity blends with his great eagerness to share his music with the world. Mounika. publishes his first productions on SoundCloud, his delicate, sensitive and melancholic melodies never cease to resonate further and further afield, finding new audiences.

In June 2017, together with a group of friends, Mounika. decides to unveil his first album “How Are You” on Spotify, which contains among others the track “Cut My Hair”. In just a few months and against all odds due to the almost non-existent means of promotion, the track amasses 15+ million plays throughout the world and allows him to make a name for himself. It is from this moment that the magic happens, as if Mounika.’s music has the power to touch a part of sensibility in each of us, a universal shared feeling.

Mounika. returns this year with a new electro chill album. discreet by nature. We will be announcing more news and updates on May 15. At this time, Mounika. returns with his first offering since his debut LP. The single is titled “Intro (I m sorry)” and is released on April 10, 2020.

In one image, Mounika.’s musical universe would be a rainy cloud which, between two showers, lets a summer sun shine through.
