With a sound that has always kept one foot in the pop stratosphere, her live show is the the ultimate dance party

As TOKiMONSTA, California producer Jennifer Lee’s charted a fascinating career over the past seven years, and her latest album, Lune Rouge, is her exhilarating next step. The third proper long-player from TOKiMONSTA is both a logical progression of her sound and a surprising left turn from an artist that rarely ceases to surprise. A smoky, patient, and altogether lovely collection, Lune Rouge mixes modern sensibilities with old-school sounds to make for a heady brew of moonlit music.
 
Lee’s work as TOKiMONSTA gained widespread recognition from the very start: her 2010 debut album, Midnight Menu, saw release on Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint and cemented her reputation as a formidable presence of the then-emerging West Coast beat scene. 
 
TOKiMONSTA’s sound has always kept one foot in the pop stratosphere, but Lune Rouge finds her diving in with glee. Her effervescent beats serve as the perfect framework for these gorgeous songs And Lune Rouge is the latest change in her prismatic career—a testament to the healing powers of art in the face of insurmountable difficulty. 

And TOKiMONSTA’s live set are a world of its own. Drawing from her own style along with hip-hop and electronic music, she creates the ultimate dance party.
