Tokimonsta has come to use this background to create vast textural soundscapes by utilizing live instruments, percussion, digital manipulation, and dusty vinyl. Her music is rooted in hip hop rhythms fused with classic soul, traditional percussion, avant-garde jazz, experimental electronica, psychedelic rock, and everything in between–there is no “one-way” to describe her style. Through the creation of beats, she is able to fuse vintage styles with progressive sounds into something unique. Though distinctly known as being one of few female producers in her sphere, her music has come to represent itself. Toki has been featured regularly on various programs on BBC Radio 1, as well as numerous national radio stations around the world. She is also notably the first female to be apart of Flying Lotus’ Los Angeles-based crew/label BRAINFEEDER. As a recent participant of the prestigious Red Bull Music Academy, she will continue her to create genre bending future music.
