TOKiMONSTA, Cosmic Intoxication
Jennifer â€œTokimonstaâ€ Lee has waded into a teeming L.A. beat scene with her Cosmic Intoxication debut. So give her praise for excelling at production fundamentals and spinning a cool vibe on this 21-minute EP. Her best numbers, including the breezily surreal â€œLine To Dotâ€ and â€œDoing It My Way,â€ mine a melodic element reminiscent of mid-90s trip-hop. A few moments on Cosmic Intoxication, especially the soul chops of â€œGlaring Lights,â€ may sound like overly familiar clichÃ©s. With luck, however, Tokimonsta has only begun to develop a voice that separates her from the beat crowd.
