There aren’t many things that feel better than some sensual, R&B infused electro. Taking off a wet bathing suit feels great, but when you find that musician that can take you on a sonic soul train down lovers lane, it’s pretty much the musical equivalent of hitting the jackpot.
There’s a thin line between the moods of wanting to get down and wanting to get down and dirty, and it’s a tough artistic balance to try to ride that line. But boy oh boy when those lines do bridge, the stars align and life finally seems like a smooth journey, even if it’s just for 3 minutes and 25 seconds.
Take, for example, our girl TOKiMONSTA, the power producer from Los Angeles who has been making serious moves in the scene for a while now.
You may know her because she’s been heading up the collaborative game with quite a roster. She has worked with artists such as Grimes, Anderson .Paak, Johnny Pierce, MNDR, A L L I E, and has quite a history of music with dance-a-holic, indie-pop singer Gavin Turek.
Her track “Realla” with Anderson .Paak a couple of years ago made its way through the blogosphere and infected the hearts of every listener.
If you were down with that fantastic collab and you’re looking for a bit more, check out their most recent masterpiece “Put it Down”.
If you’re based in Chicago then you are in luck. On Saturday, February 4th, 2017, TOKiMONSTA will be hitting the decks at Chicago’s 1st Ward / Chop Shop, and you can go.
