The best two tracks are collaborations with Angelena Gavin Turek. Her flirty, nocturnal croon proves to be a natural pairing with TOKiMONSTA’s glassy beatwork. “Little Pleasure” is the clearest success; Turek wraps herself around a gently oscillating boom-bap – delectably dusty and utterly tranquilizing. It works so perfectly you can’t help but hope it might be the chrysalis of a future, more fleshed-out project – think like the sparks presented on the pre-Postal Service gem (This Is) the Dream of Evan and Chan. Toki is a background worker at heart, and it makes sense she might yearn for a presence to balance out the spotlight. - www.prefixmag.com


Singer/dancer/actress/pitchwoman Gavin Turek — she of the massive curls who’s the spokesperson for the Rimmel London cosmetics line — has aligned with local imprint Sonata Cantata Records to release her first album. But before that, she’s exercised her electro jones on one of her favorite duos, NYC’s Ratatat. Turek is releasing a free EP of Ratatat remixes, straight from her very own laptop. (Her debut single “Ring It” is available too if you connect with her Facebook.) Beeps and beats away — you might like her “Heartbreaker.” - www.buzzband.la


Her sense of humor is quirky; her modesty, inspiring. Its easy to become entranced by the hair, but there's more to her than just her fierce mane. Multi-talented actress and singer Gavin Turek is definitely catching the surf on the next wave of fabulous to hit this year's music scene. A gorgeous mix of African American and Czechoslovakian, Gavin is one of the most beautiful people we've ever seen. And the girl's got talent! She wrote her first song when she was six years old, rode a camel in a desert of India, can make a mean cappuccino, and has perfected what she calls "the spastic dance" which can be seen in her videos.

Music for any Occasion

Basically, she's awesome and her style is unmistakably unique. If I could name it, it would be like indie L.A. style electronica pop with hints of jazz. The kind of music that you can listen to at the beach, bump in your car on a road trip or even clean your house to on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Think J*Davey meets Ella Fitzgerald who then meets Lykke Li. Makes no sense right? Well, of course it doesn't! Because trying to categorize Gavin would be like trying to squeeze a peach. It serves no purpose. Her voice is light, playful and enchantingly addictive. It's almost impossible to get her songs unstuck from your head. From "So Cool" to "Ring It", Gavin's sound is organic, super chill, and fun. - www.eardish.com

Bio

A trained dancer, blossoming songwriter and captivating vocalist, Gavin is a triple threat of an artist whose musical career has only just begun. Discovered by the first lady of Brainfeeder, TOKiMONSTA, Gavin has lent her voice to several tracks on TOKi’s Creature Dreams EP, including its lead single, “Little Pleasures.” The single has been a recent favorite on KCRW and a number of independent radio stations across the country; Prefix Magazine praises this collaboration: “Little Pleasures is the clearest success… Turek wraps herself around a gently oscillating boom-bap – delectably dusty, and utterly tranquilizing.”

Yes, she’s come a long way from the days of making beats and writing music in her college dorm room. Back then, Gavin didn’t necessarily plan on sharing her music with the rest of the world. She says, “Writing was simply my emotional outlet so I started making music on my laptop. That led to my sister posting some of it online, which then led to working with incredible producers and the start of an album.” As she continues to experiment with different musical textures and sounds, Gavin finds inspiration from a myriad of life experiences including some months spent absorbing the sights and sounds of Ghana and India. Certainly, her work with TOKiMONSTA and the latter’s electronic medium have also found their place in Gavin’s developing sound.
