TOKiMONSTA – ‘Creature Dreams’

 

It’s not every day you see female producers out there, and it’s certainly not often that we hear of one with chops enough to be welcomed into the boys club that is music production. Over the last couple of years, TOKiMONSTA has quietly crept up to the ranks of being a must watch artist. As the only woman on Flying Lotus’ label, Brainfeeder, Toki holds her own and then some with her recent Creature Dreams EP. The project is inspired by the woozy dreamy state she found herself while crafting during the wee hours of the night. As with any of her other work, Creature Dreams is moving; melodic, trippy, and dense yet still sexy, it’s the perfect ambient music for a rainy daydream or a late night work session.

Boom Clap Bachelors Video – “Løb Stop Stå”

Boom Clap Bachelors – Løb Stop Stå from Plug Research on Vimeo.

This Boom Clap Bachelors video is a bit like Little Dragon‘s video for “Never Never,” in that it exclusively features the singer of the group. And in both cases, we’re mesmerized watching them do anything at all. Here’s Coco O. of Quadron taking a ride in a convertible, in “Løb Stop Stå” by Boom Clap Bachelors.

Boom Clap Bachelors – Mellem Dine Læber EP

“If you like Quadron, you’ll love Boom Clap Bachelors.” And if you don’t like Quadron, the Danish duo of producer Robin Hannibal and vocalist Coco O, then we suggest that you get your head fixed. Freshly released on Plug Research for the US, Boom Clap Bachelors are a kind of spin-off from Quadron, getting their friends involved: Ronni Vindahl, Thomas Bisballe and David Cytryn on production, with Liv Lykke joining Coco on vocals. The obvious difference between the two groups is that BCB has Danish lyrics, but nothing gets lots in translation. The Danish title Mellem Dine Læber translates to “Between Your Lips.”

Their new album Mellem Dine Læber is out now in the US, and streaming on Soundcloud with new videos on the way. Buy it now on iTunes to get a bonus track.
