A jet-setting DJ and music producer, TOKiMONSTA sets her own beat.
As a pioneer of the seminal 2010 era in music and a world-class performer ranking as one of the top 100 DJs worldwide, TOKiMONSTA is one of the most revered music producers of her generation.
Her entire discography has drawn critical praise from the most notable news outlets in the world, including NPR, Rolling Stone, the New York Times, and others. However, at the end of 2015, her career temporarily came to a halt after being diagnosed with a rare — and potentially fatal — brain disease called Moyamoya. After undergoing two surgeries to treat the illness, TOKi was left with acute aphasia, meaning she could no longer verbally communicate. She had also lost the ability to comprehend the thing most important to her — music.
Through perseverance, healing, and a strong reliance on sleep, TOKi's cognitive and creative faculties returned. By spring of 2016, she made a triumphant comeback with a jaw-dropping performance at Coachella. What would have felt earth-shattering to most became just another unique part of TOKiMONSTA's story. She's a Grammy Award-winning producer, artist, and Asian-American woman who has seen firsthand the power of sleep.
As an international DJ, TOKiMONSTA has a schedule that doesn't always match up with the breakfast crowd. But she's not afraid to prioritize her sleep, and you shouldn't be either.
