Notably, Are You Happy is the only NNAMDÏ project to date that he did not produce, perform, and record by himself. NNAMDÏ bucked that self-imposed precedent to work with Chicago producer Lynyn. Lynyn is the alias of composer Conor Mackey, NNAMDÏ’s longtime bandmate in the jazz-fusion quintet Monobody. Are You Happy released shortly before Lynyn’s 2022 debut electronic LP lexicon, which went on to garner significant acclaim. Lynyn produced Are You Happy in its entirety, drawing on his extensive vocabulary of electronic music and masterful production chops to create the dense, finely detailed compositions at the core of the project.
