I was aware of several future projects by Brainfeeder associated producer and RBMA 2010 alumni Tokimonsta. Following her Cosmic Intoxication EP, out next will be an EP with London’s Blue Daisy on Team Acre. She also collaborates with Suzie Analogue as Analogue Monsta and completed remixes for Devonwho and Kid Kanevil.
What I didn’t know until today is that she has completed her debut album Midnight Menu and it’s available now from stores worldwide!
Here are two tracks you are probably familiar with. The first one is “Lucid Waking”, the second is called “Cheese Smoothie.”
And here’s a look at the full tracklist:
02. Sweet Day

06. Cheese Smoothie

08. Solitary Joy feat. Shuanise
09. Simple Reminder
12. Bready Soul

Every now and then, the guys at Scion A/V get to interview some of my favourite artists. In one of their latest, they talk to Hyperdub’s very own Ikonika, who’s album Contact, Love, Want, Have will be remembered in many top 10 lists at the end of the year.

Check out the three tracks I picked for you, or just grab the entire thing from the RBMA website.
Some weeks back, XLR8R gave us a free download from Jimmy Edgar, taken from his forthcoming album on !K7 Records. About a week ago, he also dropped a single on the label and it came with this remix from New York’s Machinedrum.
When it comes to design, the art of arranging letters has to be my favourite discipline. This new Mike Slott video directed by Stuart Langfield makes great use of typography, reason enough to feature it here.
Also check out Dâm-Funk’s new 12-inch on Stones Throw, the guys at Moovmnt have more on that!
