Tokimonsta brings her blissed-out beats to WWW in Shibuya. Electronic bleeps that pack a mighty punch, live and direct from Tokyo.

The Tokimonsta might be small, but she packs a mighty punch. This Californian resident makes sun-drenched beats by the bucketload, and has caught the ears of scene-setters like Mary Anne Hobbsand Flying Lotus. She released her Bedtime Lullabies LP on LA/Japanese clothing label Foreign Family, and since then has dropped several more singles and EPs on labels like Listen Up, All City, Ramp, or Brainfeeder, as well as her album Half Shadows on Ultra Records. A love of strange electronic bleeps permeates her blazed, soulful soundscapes, which sample anything from Motown 45s to Yellow Magic Orchestra, whose Ryuichi Sakamoto has become a frequent collaborator and friend of Toki. For further proof, check out her heartfelt tribute to the man on her 2014 full-length Desiderium.
