Andreya Triana "Far Closer (Tokimonsta Remix)"
Artistically speaking, LA-based producer and Brainfeeder acolyte Tokimonsta couldn't have less in common with sultry crooner Andreya Triana—the former makes obtusely experimental hip-hop-leaning tunes and the latter seems to have a serious penchant for the second coming of jazz music. Nonetheless, the two work well together on this remix of Triana's "Far Closer" tune, which drops with on a single featuring other versions of the song on February 15 via Ninja Tune (artwork above). While Tokimonsta works out a bulbous, alien-G-funk bassline, a slick boom-boom-crunch rhythm, and some spacey atmospheres, the singer delivers syrupy line after sweet, syrupy line of classic jazz inflections. The complete odd couple quite easily became a winning pair.
