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. Through the creation of beats, she is able to fuse vintage sounds with progressive styles into something unique.
To commemorate the release of her Brainfeeder debut in stores last week, we have the official online release of TOKiMONSTA‘s Analogue Monsta selection mix for your listening pleasure. Within the mix’s 37 minutes, TOKi weaves together a soundscape made up of some of her influences & peers alike, including everything from her Brainfeeder labelmates – Flying Lotus, Samiyam & Ras_G, to a few welcome left turns from the likes of Jneiro Jarel, James Blake & Cee-Lo Green – and just about everything in between. Also included are a few of TOKi’s own productions from each of her releases to date, including the dreamy “Little Pleasures” (featuring the voice of a very exciting newcomer to the scene, Gavin Turek) – one of the personal highlights from her new EP,Flying Lotus, Samiyam & Ras_G, Jneiro Jarel, James Blake, Cee-Lo Green .
This mix comes from a joint-effort Analogue Monsta tour CD that TOKi is selling along with her faithful partner in crime, Suzi Analogue. Check back here soon – as we’ll be releasing Suzi’s half of the mix, along with a small bonus EP, by the end of the week as well.Read: More Here…
