TOKiMONSTA dropped out of the clouds yesterday to impart a little bit of chillness — “Fame Boozer’s Lullaby” comes free from the L.A. beat queen, full of cosmic echoes and passionate vocal harmonies that make this track sound distant and heartfelt at the same time.
TOKiMONSTA (Jennifer Lee) is an adorable girl with an alarmingly strong grip of funk. If you are at all familiar with her latest, the Creature Dreams EP, or you are any amount of a fan of Ninja Tune or Brainfeeder, you shouldn’t have a hard time believing this. But what makes her even more of a valuable asset to the beat scene is that she knows how to do it without crowding her sonic canvas. Lullabies are not complex things, meant to ease you out of complex knots of stress and worry. With aid from the soothing vocals of Saturn Never Sleeps vocalist Rucyl, “aka [Jennifer’s] tech geek partner in crime,” this track is nothing short of sweet dreams.
BONUS :: One of our faves from TOKi, can’t deny this funk!
