ANALOGUE MONSTA – TIME TO (MUSIC VIDEO) by Noggy

We knew something was up as soon as we heard the first “analogue monsta mix” way back in 2011. Since I hold both Tokimonsta and Suzi Analogue in high esteem … I am not surprised their first collaborative effort turned out so well.  Suzi’s NNXTAPE is still on very heavy rotation and Tokimonsta’s “Darkest Dim” still has this surreal feel to it, that makes you want to listen to it over and over again. Needless to say I am anxious to hear a lot more from  Anologue Monsta, a merge of two ladies with their own distinctive take on electronic music.

I have to say that the blend of undividual styles is more accessible  than the electronic composition Suzi Analogue and Tokimonsta come up with when they produce solo.  But maybe that is because I only have this track to go on. The thing is that you’ll find that in this case accessability does not mean it ain’t totally fresh …

Almost forgot to remind ya’ll to cop the latest Georgia Anne Muldrow  “Seeds”. Produced by Madlib there was 99.9 percent change this release would turn out to be a musical master piece. The blend of the slightly diverse aproach to music of Georgia Anne Muldrow and Madlib turned out to be a stroke of genius. The result is absolutely worthy of a spin.

Jennifer Lee a.k.a Tokimonsta has finally released a video for the standout track from last years “Creature Dreams EP” … “Darkest Dim”. Both the L.A. beatsmith,Tokimonsta and Gavin Turek, the girl who does the dreamy vocals are featured in the video. With the help of director Doug Chang a  3.26 minute dream adventure is created.

The story is that Tokimonsta (The Dream Curator) carefully manages the playlist of Gavin Turek’s (The Sleeper) dreams throughout the night using her grippers. When Tokimonsta accidentally breaks a dream card in half using her hand, she discovers a newfound possibility of remixing broken pieces of dream cards together to deliver Gavin the most beautiful dream she ever had.

You can find each and every possible detail of the video on darkestdim.blogspot.com ….

It’s that time again. The time to let y’all know that something pretty fly is coming your way.  After the critically acclaimed A-Free-Ka in 2009, Shafiq Husayn is crafting another musical masterpiece ” The LooP”. My expectations are high cause working with the likes of  Jimetta Rose, J. Mitchell, Breezy Lovejoy, Mic Holden, and Thundercat just has to result in something really good.
