iTunes Review

A fast-rising producer out of Japan, Tokimonsta is not content with standard 4/4 time signatures and verse-chorus-verse-style track construction — her instrumental compositions are a mind-melting mix of intricately layered samples, exotic percussion, and live instrumentation. Her songs take a strange approach to mellow —both cosmic and off-kilter. The seven tracks on Creature Dreams are all distinct, but still work well together, from the breezy vocals of "Little Pleasures" (with Gavin Turek), to the freaky, panned sound effects of "Stigmatizing Sex," to the neck-breaking stomp of the closer "Day Job." Akin to artists like Daedelus, Flying Lotus, and Gaslamp Killer, this is modern-day head music for listeners bored with simple genres.

Tokimonsta reveals her Creature Dreams

It is a precarious place and some songs seem to have the intimate vibe that have made previous EPs and LPs so fantastical, whilst others although still melodic would have an easy home in a club like Low End Theory. This is another victory for Brainfeeder, and a further laurel crown for Tokimonsta.

Tokimonsta takes her name from "Toki," the Korean word for rabbit, and the hyperbolic hip-hop term “monsta,” similarly, Tokimonsta looks as timid and innocent as a schoolgirl, and makes beats that are beastly enough in scope to compete with big hitters like Flying Lotus and Daedelus. Born in the South Bay area of Los Angeles, Jennifer Lee's attention turned from classical piano lessons to making left-field recordings with an SP-404 and Fruityloops software. In college, as her love of hip-hop continued...
