Editorial Reviews

The official debut album from LA female beat maker TOKiMONSTA, first female to be apart of Flying Lotus Los Angeles-based crew/label Brainfeeder. Born and raised in the South Bay area of Los Angeles,TOKiMONSTA (Jennifer Lee) was an unfocused pupil of classical piano. However, she has come to use this background to create vast textural soundscapes by utilizing live instruments, percussion, digital manipulation, and dusty vinyl. Her music is rooted in hip hop rhythms fused with classic soul, traditional percussion, avant-garde jazz, experimental electronica, psychedelic rock, and everything in between--there is no "one-way" to describe her style. Through the creation of beats, she is able to fuse vintage styles with progressive sounds into something unique. Though distinctly known as being one of few female producers in her sphere, her music has come to represent itself. Toki has been featured regularly on various programs on BBC Radio 1, as well as numerous national radio stations around the world. She is also notably the first female to be apart of Flying Lotus Los Angeles-based crew/label BRAINFEEDER. As a recent participant of the prestigious Red Bull Music Academy, she will continue her to create genre bending future music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deranged bliss May 10, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
Tokimonsta's asymmetric beats and spaced-out Asian lounge melodies make Midnight Menu a brilliant album. Comparisons to Flying Lotus are inevitable, warranted, and perhaps even welcome, as Toki does more than just copy a formula - the formula gets rewritten from a new perspective. This album shows how the unique sounds of a single artist morph into an entire genre of music.

I'm still wading through the wonky weirdness, but so far I can tell I'm really digging on the vocal tracks and on some B-sides that fly out of nowhere and attach themselves to my frontal lobe.

Also check out Tokimonsta's appearance on LA Series 8 - where three more awesome tracks are ready to throw you into the volcano of trippy catharsis.
