TOKiMONSTA Remixes Andreya Triana's "Far Closer"

One of Ninja Tune’s contributions to the new sound of soul is singer Andreya Triana.

The South East Londoner was scooped up by the label last year, releasing her debut album Lost Where I Belong in August. A track from that album just got a remix treatment from one of our favorite new producers, LA’s TOKiMONSTA.

We seem to fall in love with TOKiMONSTA everytime she releases anything, whether it’s a good old-fashioned remix, or the theme song for a murderous clone assassin.

She’s got some good stuff to work with. Lost Where I Belong is a Bonobo production, and as usual, his beats meticulously produced yet organic, and mellow. They’re perfect as a base for some of Andreya’s soulful crooning. TOKiMONSTA makes this number a little more blippy. It goes from soul to bass-heavy R&B, with plenty of synths layered into the mix. It’s not as ambient and trippy as some of TOKi’s own album work. It’s like the two artists meet in the middle to create this sort of in between sound. Hear below.
