TOKiMONSTA – “Half Shadows”

Tokimonsta - Half Shadows

TOKiMONSTATOKiMONSTA (Jennifer Lee) is a DJ and producer based off of LA. Half Shadows is her second full length LP since 2010. It was inspired by Haruki Murakami’s 2002 novel Kafka On The Shore.

I love TOKiMONSTA’s style. I’m a sucker for good hip hop beats with poppy hooks — she blends them perfectly and it makes my ear taste buds happy. I know this is cheesy, but I’m proud to see a fellow Asian woman with such a badass style! :)
