TOKiMONSTA has been touring madly across the globe throughout 2011 and has a wildly growing fanbase to match. One of the very few female beat producers creating in this sonic realm, TOKiMONSTA’s music has been featured in numerous publications, including NPR, BBC Radio 1, Los Angeles Times, Spin, Pitchfork and the LA Weekly, who recently named her as the #1 Female DJ in the city. Part of the Brainfeeder crew, TOKiMONSTA’s debut EP Creature Dreams is available now on Flying Lotus’ label.
Having recently ripped a hole in the sky above Low End Theory LA, Death Grips now sets its sights on San Francisco. Intensely powerful, Death Grips’ live shows are part punk, part hip hop and 100% energy. Zach Hill thrashes the drum kit with wild-eyed ferocity, met with mind-searing madness from MC Ride, Mexican Girl, Info Warrior and group founder Flatlander.
