JOY KILL (FOUK, GLENN ASTRO REMIXES)
when fouk & glenn astro remix a new artist you know what the vibe is: dirty diy house with a heavy funk vibe. mangabey is the new kid on the toy tonics family and he is a master of this style. he lives in lyon/ france (and is a good friend of folamour who remixed his first ep on toy tonics some months ago).
JUDGE NOT (RAY MANG MIXES)
gospelhouse from heaven! yes - this is a very special record: nyc‘s phenomenal handclap band meets londons ray mang - the psychedelic soul disciples meet the disco champ by way of remix. ray mang is a hero to fans of underground disco: remixer, collector, producer, dj - he is part of that magic circle of london dj connoisseurs around dj harvey.
THE BO ALLAN EP (MOUNT LIBERATION REMIX)
art alfie joined the toy tonics crew ! you know him from studio barnhus. he released his album last on axel bomans label last year and a couple of hot tracks with longtime partner mr. tophat before that. his first ep for toy tonics features 3 of the sweetest bangers he did till now. what a wonderful vibe! and the remix … killer. by stockholms amazing newcomers mount liberation unlimited (who just released an ep on permanent vacation). art alfie is busy these days: besides his involvement with toy tonics he started a own label (velvet pony). even if you might know him mainly from the kick-ass dancefloor stuff he has been doing with karlovak and the studio barnhus gang - there is some more complex background here: alfie used to play in hardcore and psychedelic bands and has a real golden hand when it comes to work with musicians. in fact currently he is also producing some stuff for swedish supergroup/hotshot band ‚off the meds‘! yes, stay tuned! art alfie is coming on strong ?? in 2019!
dirty funk house from colombia! with heavy remixes by seb wildblood (church), retrogott (ava, money sex) & dj qualle and pontchartrain. felipe gordon is new to the scene, but entering the house world now via toy tonics in a heavy way. just watch that remix package: felipe gordon has some massive fans already. he knows a few dudes and he has some cool releases coming on church, s3a records and intimate friends. in fact felipe is throwing some of the biggest underground house parties in colombia along with his nómada records crew from bogotá. and he is making tracks, too. dirty bangers. with a certain unique vibe. he used to play in bands before switching to samplers and getting addicted to old disco and house vinyl. you can hear that: his moody, raw tunes use samples of rare records. but selected carefully, adding his own juno 60 or moog synth chords (like on tell me something true). often using minor keys and lot of little noises and short spoken words by himself. never clean, always musically special. felipe gordon might be new to the international dance scene, but for sure you gonna hear that name more frequently over the next years.
the new toy tonics ep features four remixes of kapote - tracks. new and exclusive works by fyi chris (rhythm section intl), marvin & guy (life & death), art alfie (studio barnhus) and french newcomer real j.
this one is for people who like the real disco tools. for dudes who love the style of dj harvey, prins thomas or todd terje. for djs that want the girls to dance. toy tonics lead honcho black loops teamed up with italo-spanish dj innocent soul in his berlin studio. do we have to introduce black loops? not really: he started his career on toy tonics three years ago. meanwhile did 5 eps on the label - including his main club hit sex (that was one of the 50 most sold house tracks on beatport in 2016). innocent soul is a young italian living in barcelona where he is a quite established kid in the nightlife scene. vittorio rinaldi his name. he is resident dj at space music garden project and resident for the modular project at city hall. like black loops he is not really innocent. at least if it comes to music. he is a huge lover and collector of disco, afro, black, raw and house music vinyl. you can hear the influences in this ep for sure. rollin. this ep is a bomb.
kapote is back with a new ep. the berlin based head of toy tonics, passionate vinyl digger and dj comes back with 3 new tracks. as always the kapotes music is hard to file under one genre. i hate clichees in dance music he says. my dj sets are never committed to just one style and so i want my eps to be more open than most dj records are.
rhode & brown are back on their motherlabel toy tonics! after last years breakbeat - tune st hippolyte and getting remixed by their buddies hodini and glenn astro, their new ep takes their sound further again. from diy-disco to dreamy house, whatever you like to call it.. the tracks have this joyful touch, that makes their sound so special. this time their production way was a little bit different: while spending holidays on the marvellous island of zanzibar they produced the raw versions of this ep. they set up their studio at a beach cabanne. with a monkey becoming their muse. they monkey came over every day to listen to their sounds. they became friends and called the monkey rosie and fed her with mangos. when back in europe the munich boys still were in a balearic mood. so they went to a house deep in the south of france to finish the music. the result were 4 tracks. three for this ep. and one track that they gave to the other munich based label public possession for their recent serie a compilation. which makes totally sense: public possession and toy tonics both have links to gomma records. its all a family thing. where great munich vibes incoming!
MUSHROOM HOUSE EP 4
joe claussell joined the mushroom house series! the new york city dj and music originator made one of his rare remixes. for the toy tonics series. claussell is a pioneer. blending african and brazilian rhythms with disco and house since the early 1990ies. inspiring the music world with his labels spiritual life music and ibadan records and with his legendary body & soul parties that he run for 6 years with francois k and danny krivit in nyc. for toy tonics he remixed an obscure afro funk song by german afro - kraut band karl hector & the malcouns and nicolas tounga, singer from burkina faso.
coeo are toy tonics lead artists and they dont joke! technically perfect on a level that most producers start to get jealous. musically filled up with so much knowledge about the history of disco and house that its no wonder that big names like kenny dope, borrowed identity and tensnake are huge fans. and their styleà? its a pure hedonistic discoish attitude that combines the funk driven eclecticism of today, the curiosity of young music cats who always want to be ahead and a sense of quality in music that we miss in so many of todays house music productions. in fact its 2017 and a lot is changing in the house scene. the old melancholic deep house now is quite dead - while most deep house charts are filled up with sample based funk house. coeo are regularly on the top of the several deep house charts, and there is a reason: their tracks have that kind of new, nasty, sexualised vibe that gets more inspired from the late 1990ies french touch house or early masters at work production. from jazz djs and dj sets of wildstyle djs like harvey or the idjut boys. its not any more about the old schematic ketamine deep house that always sounds the same (and makes your feet fall asleep.) listen to flesh world! its black music basically. its booty sound. disco for sure. this track gets you riding on a trip. play it one time and youll play it every time. and: check the percussion jam remix by toy tonics head kapote.
RED LIGHT EP
here comes the new black loops ep! and by now you know what to expect: these irresistible rolling groove patterns with that unique warm black loops-feeling. that special vibe that made black loops one of the leading artists on toy tonics. by now its exactly four years that they released their debut ep right now on the gomma sublabel. they did four eps on toy tonics since then - followed by selected releases on neo vinyl, pets and gruuv records
THE BODY MOVE
monsieur kapote comes back with another deep funk house ep on toy tonics. slap bass, wurlitzer jazz pianos, old school house drum machines, nasty talks. this new three- tracker continues the vibe of his last single the nose (that went no.1 on traxsource and juno and is still getting hammered by dj’s from all kind of scenes). this is slow grooving dance music. nothing is stressy here. jazz funk inspired mid- tempo house with live played bass, keyboards and lot of warm harmonies. played with a high musical level. pure quality. in fact kapote used to play keyboards and bass in jazz bands before getting absorbed by dance music culture. he is a big fan of late 60ies hard bob jazz as well as 1970ies jazz funk and disco. you can feel these vibes in all of his tracks. besides producing his own music kapote also is running toy tonics records with his buddies manuel kim and munk.
MUSHROOM HOUSE EP 3
toy tonics mushroom house series brings together different shades of afro-weirdo-psychedelic vibes in dance music. all tracks have been made exclusively for toy tonics. the musical range is wide: the third ep goes from arabic guitars to nubian chants and looots of percussions. the bass drum is four-on-the-floor, but switches from midtempo (kiwi: we are here) to classic new york lofi disco grooves (ponty mython) the other 2 tracks on the ep feature an emptier vibe: less toms more drum machines. more techno. red axes deliever probably one of their weirdest works. their munk rework is pure craziness. the melodies come from another space. the last track on the ep is made by old toy tonics friends from milano: the barking dogs. they teamed up with tom trago in the basement studio of the great record store they run in milan: serendeepity records. they are known for selling obscure, but classy music for dance floors and thats what they do when the make music on their own. like on your high: an obscure groove meets a sloppy bassline and stoned vocals.
the coeo boys need no introduction anymore. their two last singles made it into the sets of so many djs. they are among the emerging artists of that new german scene of kids that make house music inspired by old jazz and funk records. the boys are mad about rare vinyl. and they love to make music with a positive spirit. yes, there is something sunny in their tracks. something that instantly makes you want to move. we heard so many mixtapes that started with a coeo track. makes sense: they are perfect to set a vibe. a good mood. but if you know that the coeo boys work in a studio over the roofs of munich, with a fantastic view over the lights of the city, with a great vibe where you see all the glammy colors of the light in the night then you understand why coeos music sounds as it sounds
ROOM 69 (ALKALINO RMX)
mysterious producer kian t is a crazy guy living in a lonely house on a top of a hill somewhere in italy. surrounded by a collection of rare old synths and vintage samplers, a little dog and the best red wine of italy. kian is making beats all day long. that’s his life. he started his career on toy tonics last year and now is back with an own ep - full of that fucked up, jazz influenced cut & paste house sound that is taking over the house world since last year. similar to his friends rhode & brown, fouk, nachtbraker or the guys around oye records in berlin he loves to create this special way of sampling old jazz records and using rare vintage synthesizers instead of digital computer sounds. just listen to a normal deep house records of the last years and compare it with the sound of the kian. using these old synths makes a big difference. you can hear it on every of his tunes: there is no cheap sound here everything is fat and has a very warm, personal, always easy to recognize sound-aesthetic: courtesy of the four synthesizers he uses: the korg polysix, the sequential prophet600, a roland juno 60, and the legendary oberheim matrix 6. and courtesy of the way he mixes his tracks: not in the laptop - but the old way: on a fat old mixing desk. thats why he has that massive sound.
GET DOWN BROTHER (BRAME & HAMO RMX)
kapote loves the funk. and he loves blaxploitation movies. the black underground cinema from the 1970ies. kapote samples dirty talk from these movies and puts it on his bass lines. melodic basslines with a heavy 1070 funk vibe. bass lines that can create a sexual tension. kapote adds a few warm, jazzy rhodes piano chords and a lot of reverbs and filtering. and the music rolls. often more like a jam then like a constructed piece of music. in the highest points this music is pure endorphin. it s 4 to the floor - but it has a soulful analogue sound. kapote says he was listening to records from old detroit label red planet and parisian downtempo pioneers motorbass and la funk mob while making this record. and yes, the vibe is there. like these guys kapote likes to build his musical trips around snippets from old funk vinyl. adding beats with vintage drum machines and creating an eclectic trip into a universe full of jazzy bits, noisy drums and dirty samples.
toy tonics main men rhode & brown come back with a new ep full of their very special, funk influenced, analogue sounding dance tracks
adesse versions coming on toy tonics! after some heavy releases on numbers, local talk, make love in public spaces and his own white-label imprint, kevin gorman brings us four new raw, heavydriving, superfunky cut-and-paste- house tracks. killers! adesse versions started as a re-edit project while kevin lived in vietnam. it grew quickly, getting him big fame for being the guy playing just dubplates with unknown crazy music only he had. (check his boiler room). gilles peterson, derrick may and larry heard are fans. adesse versions is all about paying tribute to his musical idols and creating timeless music. through rough sampling and raw emotion and as a dj and collector. he is an artist that has toured the world many times over. exclusive edits are a staple, alongside a wide selection of music that comes from a deep knowledge and love of what he does. to hear this in action, check out the monthly adesse versions show on rinse fm.
MUSHROOM HOUSE EP 1 (DJ KOZE REMIX)
hurry up : dj koze remix !!!
this mushroom house ep is the first release in a series of ep’s that will feature this new weirdo house sound that is influenced by ethno, afro, psychedelic music. on this first 4 track ep you get new music from alien alien aka italian producers rodion & hugo sanchez with a detroit techno kind of track with mushroomey space voices that drive a dancefloor crazy. (alien alien previously released on turbo, nein, slow motion, gomma). then australian surfer kid and house producer jad & the ladyboy doing a afro heavy old school mpc house jam. (jad released also records on exploited and toy tonics). gomma boss munk is featured with his surf smurf - collaboration with rebolledo (pachanga boys). as a bonus track you get the legendary dj koze remix of whomadewhos keep me in my plane. released some years ago, three times repressed and sold out. sounding now fresher then ever. the mushroom house series features mostly new tracks, produced exclusively for toy tonics.
BACK IN THE DAYS
coeo are to toy tonics records, what master at work were to the house scene of the 1990ies: they bring the soul into the house. their new ep back in the days is a 4 track house stomper that could have been made in 1997 by guys like sneak, dimitri from paris or little louie. but still the similarities to the new berlin sample-house scene around max graef and hodini are evident, too. already their last years superhit native riddim (which is featured as a bonus track on this vinyl) included some heavy jazz samples they found in their parents bag of soul. native riddim has been no.1 in the traxsource charts for several weeks and was the basis for their already huge following. from laurent garnier to tensnake - the feedback has been awesome. now they proceed their way of souldful house. just good taste.
TUNNEL WOMAN (HODINI REWORK)
vintage house freaks and soul kids: rhode & brown from munich come back on toy tonics with a great, funk driven, instrumental ep. featuring a remix by upcoming producer hodini. rhode & brown come from the growing young, new house scene of munich. since 3 years the kids host their own night at munichs kong club and doing music. after a few remixes (check the one for brooklyn based label good company records) the boys release their first ep of 2015 on toy tonics. the sound? they proudly call it weißwursthouse produced on a stradivari-build mpc 1000 in their beautiful studio in the heart of munich. influenced by old soul records, detroit legends theo parrish and moodymann, as well as new experimental house from the scandinavian labels around studio barnhus. everything with their own unmistakable rhode & brown touch.
FUCK MUSIC (SESSION VICTIM REMIX)
the kid called kapote is our new favorite man on the toy tonics camp.. :) coming up with his first own ep. including a dancefloorfunk-remix by his berlin mates from session victim. kapote is doing house music, but influenced by rare funk and soul music. or better said: by the mid 1990ies wave of filter house and the french touch. he likes the black american scene around paul johnson or the tracks on detroits red planet label (the martian!!). but also french people like la funk mob, g-ilbert, early super discount stuff.. the days when it was all about finding the ultra rare, but ultra effective samples and using it in a clever and very musical way. creating a new groove, something that flows with a big bunch of soul. kapote does this… and he has the old vinyls and he has the right machines to make them swing in a new way. check out kapote.

PALACE EP (GLENN ASTRO REMIX)
berlin techno was the big thing over the last years, but you might know that in german cites like hamburg and munich there is a huge growing experimental house scene. hamburgs diynamic records crew or munich artists such as sascha sibler (innervisions) or cocolores (exploited) are equally well respected as the big names from berlin. one of the fresh new labels is toy tonics from munich and the raising stars of the labels are rhode & brown.
