The Melbourne crew will celebrate their birthday in June, with Toddla T and Beat Spacek also billed.
Since 2004, the Melbourne crew have been pushing soul, jazz, hip-hop and electronic music, bringing out acts like Floating Points, Hudson Mohawke, Flying Lotus and DJ Spinn. To mark the 11-year anniversary they've invited TOKiMONSTA back for a third time. She will be performing live, with Toddla T, who's making his Australian debut, and Steve Spacek (playing as Beat Spacek) also billed. The support lineup features locals A13, JPS vs NAM, Kano and Amin Payne playing from 5 PM.
TOKiMONSTA, who released her third album, DESIDERIUM, on Young Art Records in late 2014, will appear at another seven shows around Australia and New Zealand. She'll start out with sets at La De Da in Canberra on June 3rd, Rocket Bar in Adelaide on the 4th and San Francisco Bathhouse in Wellington on the 5th. Following the Melbourne party, she heads to Sydney on the 7th to play at Oxford Art Factory, before crossing the Tasman again for a set at Galatos in Auckland on the 12th. Then it's Gilkison's Dance Studio in Perth on June 13th, with the tour wrapping up on the 14th at The TBC Club in Brisbane.
