Los Angeles-based melodic Hip-Hop/R&B duo MIKNNA is cultivating what can best be described as a sonic excursion, transporting listeners to a futuristic-yet-contemporary universe.
Comprised of producer/multi-instrumentalist Ken Nana and rapper/vocalist Mike B., MIKNNA was born out of a collective love for blurring genre lines, experimenting with retrofuturistic sounds and finding solace in nostalgia.
After the release of their introductory EP, 50/50 in 2016, the duo embarked on their first headlining US and European tour the following year, honing their live performance while each lent their respective talents as songwriters/producers to other acts, including the Anderson.Paak-fronted group, the Free Nationals, as well as Terrace Martin, Far East Movement and Big K.R.I.T.
Their vintage, mood ring aesthetic allows MIKNNA to create a lush, swirling soundscape, full of contemporary rap stylings, retro 80s analog production and soulful melodies, encouraging listeners to indulge in feel-good escapism and let the music take the wheel. MIKNNA released their first full-length LP “Escape” in 2019.
