TOKiMONSTA Remixes Duran Duran
Los Angeles Producer Remixes Duran Duran’s
“Last Night in the City (feat. Kiesza)”
TOKiMONSTA just shared her remix of Duran Duran’s single “Last Night in the City (feat. Kiesza),” one of several new remixes of the track that will be released via Warner Bros. Records. The Los Angeles-based producer and Young Art Records label head went out with the iconic British band last summer on their ‘Paper Gods Tour’ and Duran Duran bassist John Taylor notes, “Tokimonsta is amazing… We loved having her tour with us, and this remix is a testimony to our collaboration. We hope to work with her again!” The band’s frontman Simon Le Bon adds, “Tokimonsta’s remix of Last Night in the City is perfect. Primarily, it’s a take on the song that really works and one we wouldn’t have come up with in a million years. I never imagined it sounding like this, which makes it BRILLIANT!”
