TOKiMONSTA Puts A Sinister Spin On Aaliyah’s Classic “Rock The Boat”

Aaliyah - "Rock The Boat" (TOKiMONSTA Remix)

LA’s destroyer-of-all-beats TOKiMONSTA has made quite the name for herself over the years, working and reworking cuts from some of the greats with masterful chops and a keen vision that pulls at the very seams until a new beast has surfaced altogether. Today she’s relinquished yet another fine frequency, reworking the sultry sounds of the late Aaliyah’s classic “Rock The Boat,” opting for sinister over sensual with a cascade of synthesizers and a slightly swung shuffle. Hear TOKiMONSTA’s all-too-dope “Rock The Float” below and catch her on the road for a heaping dose of the musical magician’s vibes throughout October and November.
