TOKiMONSTA will be stopping by Portland’s Holocene on her The Lune Rouge Experience Tour on September 15 2017. Doors open at 9pm and tickets can be found here. This is a 21+ event brought to you by Abstract Earth Project. Kingdom and King Jet are the opening acts for this event.
TOKiMONSTA is the moniker for American Producer and DJ Jennifer Lee (“Toki” is Korean for rabbit). She is of Korean decent and grew up in Los Angeles where she is currently based. Before music producing she graduated from the University of California, Irvine with a degree in business and also worked for a video game producer. She was also classically trained as a pianist which would ultimately lead to her success in music.
Fast forward seven years after releasing her first album Midnight Menu in November of 2010 she is now a unique producer who’s able to mix her progressive style with vintage sounds creating music with a chill vibe that the fans love. Not only has her success featured her on many large scale radio programs and tours throughout the world but she is also the first woman to sign onto Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder label which is an amazing and notable accomplishment on its own.
