Moniquea's 'Yes No Maybe' is an album that is steeped in the synthesizer-heavy aesthetics of 1980's R&B funk (often referred to as 'boogie') but is modern enough to move past the 'retro' label into something that builds a fresh sound upon the blueprints created by seminal 80's acts such as Prince, Midnight Star, or Evelyn 'Champagne' King. It is Moniquea's vision to set herself apart by 'bringing back' a more standardized song structure to the burgeoning modern funk genre, an ideal which can be considered a commodity in what has largely branded itself as an avant-garde musical movement. The album's production, provided by XL Middleton & Eddy Funkster, is the springboard for the main focus of the album, Moniquea's vocals, delivered in a sassy, yet silky tone which shows that she has done her homework in studying her predecessors, while turning it into something modern, and uniquely her own.
