"A Place in My Heart" by Taylor McFerrin and Ryat has been on heavy rotation in our office for months, so we're thrilled to see some visuals. They're guaranteed to be good, coming from the best new West Coast record label, Brainfeeder, owned by Flying Lotus who's just made his own very successful foray into directing music videos with Erykah Badu's "Gone, Baby..." and Bilal's "Levels".
GPWW this week features a mix by TOKiMONSTA, Los Angeles DJ and beatsmith who started out as an unfocused classical piano student. That piano training became her musical foundation as she grew to make layered productions with live and digital instrumentation, dusty old vinyl, and whatever else she could find. Signed to Flying Lotus' imprint, Brainfeeder, she's fearless and energetic, having performed with Flying Lotus, Daedelus, Nosaj Thing, Gaslamp Killer, and many other of her fellow beat makers.
