TOKiMONSTA just released a sizzling track  “Say Yes.” Featuring the alluring vocals of  R&B duo VanJess (of Keep Cool Records), the new single is a a rework of the homonymous 2002 track by Floetry and TOKiMONSTA. The dance-worthy track, out now on Young Art Records, is a smooth and sexy number that starts slow, but once TOKiMONSTA’s flavorful beats hit the range, it’s a shuffling dance party from there on out.


On the new record, TOKiMONSTA shares, “The original ‘Say Yes’ was a song that encompassed the deeper meanings of openness and love. Though the pandemic has been challenging, I felt inspired to tap into that introspection and reinterpret this song with the help of the incredible VanJess. It’s my first real dance record and I’m excited to share it with the world.” 

VanJess share, “We’ve missed doing covers and getting to collaborate on one with toki was really exciting because she created such a unique spin on it that’s true to her artistry.”

TOKiMONSTA is a heralded DJ / producer in the Los Angeles music community and beyond. Getting her start in the underground music scene of L.A. — and throwing down deep house, electro-funk, and club-banging electronic — TOKiMONSTA has also collaborated with EARTHGANG, Tinashe, Anderson .Paak, Jean Deaux, Dumbfounded and more. In 2014, she founded Young Art Records, a label of her favorite up-and-coming artists, and in 2020 she started a livestreaming show on Twitch.
