Weekend Recall: TOKiMONSTA

by BJ Panda Bear

TOKiMONSTA is the LA Born and bred international DJ who bridges the gap between the mainstream EDM crowd with a dance-savvy fashion set. The Korean American who is classically trained as a pianist has collaborated on tracks with Anderson Paak and remixed Justin Timberlake just to name a few. Her training can be well heard in her complex compositions, bringing texture to the world of dance music. Well loved in the fashion scene she is can be seen DJing after parties for labels like Louis Vuitton or collaborating with streetwear brands like the women led Dimepiece. 

Ahead of her performance at Hard Summer Music Fest, we asked her to document her trip and performance at Lightning In A Bottle.
