TOKiMONSTA Speaks on Working with Kool Keith, Her Parents’ Reaction to Her Career, and More

The first lady of Brainfeeder and the now lady of Ultra, TOKiMONSTA is a critically-acclaimed favorite of both the DAD staff and electronic music heads worldwide. It’s been great to see an imprint like Ultra take her under their wing, putting out her Half Shadows LP earlier this year. During 2013, it feels like a new appreciation for her music has come forth, and it’s great to hear more of TOKi’s story. In the debut of The Operatives’ SOUNDCHECK series, TOKiMONSTA was interviewed backstage during a show in Melbourne, Australia, speaking on everything from her parents’ first reaction to her pursuing a music career to why she chose to work with Kool Keith, interspersed with dope live footage.
