Los Angeles producer TOKiMONSTA has certainly come a long way since I first discovered her music a few years ago, then contributed to her very first music video, Darkest Dim, via crowdsourcing. From those sensual electronic days, she’s gone on to demonstrate how incredibly versatile she is with all sorts of releases in various genres and all kinds of collaborations. Today, she returns to more sensual, shadowy regions with intoxicating electro R&B single Realla, featuring Anderson Paak on smooth, soulful vocals, and, might I say, some sweet, sumptuous horns. Realla is the first single off her upcoming mini album Desiderium, the first record she’ll be releasing on new label Young Art.
TOKiMONSTA -> best name ever. Good production too
Anderson Paak -> frank ocean-esque. also “obvi” used in a song
heavy scent of the 80s. fuck yeah new La Roux
r&b and electronica
Opening with some very playful lyrics and an immediately catchy melody is upbeat house number You Are My Summer, featuring Coleman Hell & Jayme, from Toronto producer and multi-instrumentalist La+ch. Of course, those horns really add to the draw of the song, for me. The track encapsulates balmy summer euphoria exceedingly well. La+ch also teamed up with Dustbuster last year on the blissful, glistening tune Hunters, a joyful, pulsing extravaganza you can stream below.
