Lecx Stacy is a Filipino-American producer/artist who spent his early childhood in Chula Vista and grew up in Mira Mesa. The local scene helped shape his musical tastes, as he hung out at venues such as the Che Cafe on UCSD’s campus, the long-gone Safe House in Escondido, and house party concerts around National City. Among the local talents and collaborators he cites as influences are Aeon Break, Brandon Watson, Redford, Ghostdad, Magoon, Dane Amar, Pudre, and God Body Mondi.
Since relocating to Los Angeles, he has worked with Jean Dawson, Deb Never, and many others in the L.A. anti-pop scene. A new single was released in May 2021, during Asian American/Pacific Islander Heritage Month. Lyrically, "Crying with the Ghosts" featuring guests Aeon Break and Jessica Winter concerns guerilla warfare from the perspective of a Filipino soldier fighting colonial forces.
The single came out shortly before his debut album Bundok, which documents his view on culture and how Spanish colonization of his native country created racism, and classism. "Bundok" means mountainous region in Tagalog, which ended up being mis-translated to Boondocks after Americans returned home from their county's own military occupation in the Philippines.
