MCDOUGALLSOUND is fortunate to have found Monoid (Joshua Lalonde) on his way up. Monoid, born and raised in Ottawa, Canada, was introduced to music at an early age by his grandfather. After playing bass in various bands in high school, he discovered hip-hop and electronic music and turned to production. His music reflects his love of 90's hip-hop, contemporary UK electronic music, and classic film soundtracks. We've added some of his tracks to our SoundCloud page and look forward to working more with this artist.
