From first playing in a sweaty nightclub above a Korean karaoke bar to selling out a headline tour, Jennifer Lee’s – known by her rabbit themed moniker TOKiMONSTA – has long had a fan club in Melbourne. Known as the ‘first lady’ and one of the founding members of FLYING LOTUS’ label Brainfeeder, it’s hard to believe that this exceptionally talented producer was once a student of classical piano and working in the corporate sector – especially when she’s dropping WU-TANG’s ‘Shame On A Nigga’ in her high-energy DJ sets. Backstage at her third show in Melbourne in her SOUNDCHECK interview, she jokes about her start as a career musician, collaborating with hip-hop legend KOOL KEITH and whips her hair back and forth to her incredible live gig. We cannot wait to see her back to celebrate the New Year in Aus with an all festival tour.
