8/10 Li'l Biz 21 October 2010

Tokimonsta is the work of Bay Area producer Jennifer Lee with this being the first pressing of her debut album 'Midnight Menu'. Lee counts as one of the only female producers making music of this nature in her field and is notable as the first female artist enlisted into L.A's Brainfeeder crew. Her music uses the basis of hip-hop (most obviously beat sampling) to create vast, genre hopping style that encompasses elements of soul, R&B, avant-garde jazz, funk, dub, acid jazz, experimental electronica and psychedelic rock. You could easily place this in the field of experimental hip-hop i would associate with producers like Madlib and the Stones Throw label (sans the MC's) but in many ways it has more in common with the trip-hop/Ninja Tune/mid-nineties Bristol scene. It's lush and adventurous in tone and draws influences from all over to form a homage to laid back flavours and lazy nights smoking massive boffs. It's an almost dream-like affair that drifts in to the psyche slowly but surely. Totally chilled business this.
