Jennifer Lee, more popularly known as Tokimonsta sold out Bar Standard on Wednesday night. Packed in like sardines, bass heads and music snobs alike came to see the L.A. producer do her thing. The cutest DJ you will ever see in demeanor, Tokimonsta’s movements are almost animated, her style cool, and her beats hiting hard, she tops the list for female producers.
Exploring many genres, she showed the crowd the best of pop, hip-hop, rap, and EDM, all while keeping everything fluid and energetic. Songs by favorites Kendrick Lamar, Missy Elliott, and A$AP Ferg were remixed and brought the crowd back to something familiar after a few songs of potentially unfamiliar territory. That territory being her newest album Lune Rouge, released last year. She most memorably played “We Love (ft. MNDR)” and “Rouge”, but there wasn’t a dull moment during her set. She included fan favorite “Go With It”, which she has played every time I’ve seen her, but it slaps every single time and gets the crowd involved more excited than the last. In addition to playing a really awesome set, Tokimonsta also played longer than she was expected to, which is always a nice surprise for the crowd.
We’ve previously talked about all the struggles Jennifer Lee experienced during the time period this album was created, and remembering how far this wonderful woman has come in her passion and career, awe for her and her music continues. Colorado would obviously love to keep seeing you, Tokimonsta! Bring back the bass!
