Tokimonsta - Creature Dreams EP (Brainfeeder)
The press release says:
"Jennifer Lee aka TOKiMONSTA prefers to work late - or early, depending on how you look at it. Most of her music is made between two and seven in the morning, because at that time of night "my mind works in strange and mysterious ways." Hence the title of this EP, a series of warm but decidedly woozy pieces of music, the soundtrack to the oddest, most beautiful dreams you've ever had.
From the bouncing bass-beds of "Bright Shadows," the Cocteau's-meet-LA-Beat of "Darkest Dim" (like "Little Pleasures," featuring the exquisite vocals of Gavin Turek), on into "Moving Forward" (which sounds like the music R2D2 makes love to), the driving, relentless beat of "Day Job," this is an EP suffused with both warmth and creativity."
For us this is Tokimonsta's best work to date. The tracks have an extra depth and musicality to them compared to her previous work, giving this release a timeless quality so lacking with a lot of todays beat generation. The EP is strong start to finish and an evolutionary leap for this promising producer..
If you want a little taste of what the lady can do then here's a little bootleg mix of Télépopmusik’s 'Breath' track she knocked up. If you like it hit up her Soundcloud page I believe you might still be able to download it.
