TOKiMONSTA was one of the first artists that got me into the more delicate, nuanced side of electronic music as her record Midnight Menu soundtracked a lot of late nights during my early high school days alongside classics like DJ Shadow’s Endtroducing….. Thus, it’s been a pleasure to see her receive widespread acclaim on Lune Rouge, an album that’s almost certainly her crowning achievement to date, over the past year.
I’m equally excited about the fact that TOKiMONSTA tapped Sofi Tukker for an “I Wish I Could” remix – it’s a serious collision of worlds as one of my favorite new acts takes on an artist paramount to my music taste’s development. The music lives up to the hype and then some as Sofi Tukker flips the track into an absolute banger of a house outing with a deep groove perfect for Selah Sue’s soulful vocal performance. It makes me wonder what would come from an outright collaboration between the critical darling and sync sensations – hopefully the universe wills that into action.
