Beyond these, artists such ‘s Bonobo, Gang Starr and The Pharcyde. Mindstate likes his music stripped back, allowing space for the vocal line to shine. The vocals bring warmth and soul to Dogger & Mindstateʼs crisp and atmospheric production — with watery pads and bright chord progressions, itʼs liquid at its most emotive, and its most meditative. Recent releases consist of “Different Roads” on TNQ – produced by Mindstate and Dogger featuring UK rappers Verbz and Sleazy F Baby. “TMWFTE” with DRS and Dogger on 1985, and most recently a solo single on Precinct called “Get A Move On” featuring Verbz, ‘ truly Hip Hop/Jazz infused drum and bass project.
