Last month MIKNNA's debuted their first single NESS – receiving 30K plays within the first couple weeks. With more than 10 years in the industry – writing, producing and collaborating with notable artists – these two are no strangers to the new wave of sound. After giving us their first taste of heaven – the LA duo is back at it again
with the white vans to wet our appetite with yet another absolute banger, "Trinity Ave".

The MIKNNA men understand the importance of the all mighty trifecta – the melody, rhythm & harmonic/lyrical stimulation. Ken Nana builds a soundscape starting with mellow electro keys and what sounds like a female cry that has gone through a synthesizer, but then sped it up like clockwork until a black screen hits – and everything is silent for a millisecond. The dance-hall reggae rhythm drops and you realize this is your very own underground "One Dance". The track bleeds a little R&B, lil hip-hop, lots of dance-hall, tiny bit of rock and a touch of funk with a whole lot of love. Mike B soothes us with his weaving his vocals seamlessly through the production – just as the bass gets heavier and synths become more full bodied – Mike B hits hard with his hypnotizing rhyme. The track finishes on an alternative note with the perfect amount of funky fresh notes to satisfy our soul.
Keep tuned for more releases from their EP titled 50/50 (All Seasons), this is only the second track!
You in LA? You can catch MIKNNA live at "School Night" at Bardot in Hollywood on the August 29th.
