“TOKiMONSTA’s Fovere is a star-studded expansion of the L.A. beatsmith’s production palette.” - Consequence of Sound

“A catalog full of densely layered, thoughtfully arranged compositions. Since her arrival in 2010, TOKiMONSTA’soutput has demonstrated an ability to apply classic craftsmanship to innovative sounds” - Impose Magazine

“She’s transcended genre and glass ceilings by simply being better. In the process, she’s broken ground for other women in a male-dominated scene.”

 The California Sunday Magazine

Fovere is the brand new mini-album from Los Angeles producer TOKiMONSTA, released today on her own imprint Young Art Records. The seven-track album kicks off with I’m Waiting,” a song “that sees TOKiMONSTA going for the warm feeling, winter vibes” (Hypetrak). It’s followed by “explosive” (The FADER) first single “Put It Down,”featuring 2016 breakthrough singer & rapper Anderson .Paak and Bay Area producer KRNE. Her latest single is “Giving Up” which features vocals from The Drums’ Jonny Pierce and bass from Lettuce’s Erick “Jesus” Coomes. On the album, the “sneaking R&B bumper with head-spinning electronic flourishes” (Consequence of Sound), is followed by tracks featuring frequent collaborator Gavin Turek, as well as collabs with Nashville-based singer/songwriter Kiya Lacey & a l l i e.

Known for her unique take on electronic, hip hop, and dance music, TOKiMONSTA—Los Angeles-based producer Jennifer Lee—since 2010 has released two full albums, multiple EPs and vinyl-only singles through highly regarded labels including Ultra Records and Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint. Her well-received 2014 mini-album Desideriumwas the first release from her Young Art Records imprint, followed by last year’s You’re Invited joint EP with Gavin Turek. Her latest mini-album Fovere is Young Art’s first release of 2016 and features collaborators including Anderson .Paak, Jonny Pierce (The Drums) and Turek. While TOKi’s needle-pushing music stands on its own, her work with artists including Jessie Ware, Jesse Boykins III and Kelly Rowland, and remixes for Tinashe, Schoolboy Q and Miguel also showcase the demand for her productions and remixes.
