IMG_3712

When announced that Tokimonsta was making her way to Neumos in March, the show became one of the most anticipated of the month selling tickets out faster than people could get their hands on them. Jennifer Lee, the girl behind Tokimonsta, has been around for a while producing, DJing, and making her own sounds while based in LA.

She was the first female to sign under Flying Lotus’ label, Brainfeeder, releasing her debut album, Midnight Menu, in 2010. She created Young Art Records and produced Gavin Turek’s album You’re Invited, also releasing the record through Young Art, along with her own record Desiderium. Drawing from her own style along with hip-hop and electronic music, she creates the ultimate dance party.

The venue was packed, and the crowd didn’t stop dancing for most of her set as she stood on stage alone behind a table that held the essentials. Her energy was great and she continuously interacted with the audience, keeping them pumped and wanting more. Her latest album Fovere was released earlier this month, and it continues to push her success further in the music scene. She will continue playing across the states to support it, so make sure to catch her when she’s in town if you’re looking for a fun night.

Music is probably the most important part of her life. Sophia is constantly searching for new material, old and new. Always looking forward to the next live show she can attend, ready to immerse herself in the sound. "There is something so magical about attending a live show that you cannot possibly feel from a recording itself that makes it worth going to", she says. She also says she's lucky to be able to combine her passion for music with her obsession of capturing moments. She finds that being able to look at a photograph and be transported to that second of your life is indescribable and she's so grateful for all those great moments.
