WHAT IT IS (2LP, POSTER)
2 LP, POSTER The first album on Toy Tonics. The debut album of Toy Tonics labelboss Kapote. And its kind of a manifesto of the labels sound: a perfect blend of Jazzfunk and Slow House
The album comes in the right moment: It’s a great time for Toy Tonics: MixMag had the label in their “10 best labels of the year” list. DJ’s like Harvey, Kerri Chandler, Moodymann, Gerd Janson, Hunee, Black Madonna playing the records. The releases selling out on vinyl constantly. And: Toy Tonics just joined the K7! family. One of the most prestigious electronic music collectives. After doing one EP per month for the last five years, now here is the first album. Made by Toy Tonics’ head honcho KAPOTE. With a lot of live instruments, solos, clever using of rare samples and a wide range of musical inspirations. Pure quality and freshness for 2019. But: who is Kapote? If you are a Toy Tonics follower you know: he is one of the two guys running the label. The mysterious person never showing his face. Always appearing next to Munk - the other Toy Tonic boss. But well, it’s time to solve the little mystery. As it was obvious for many anyway: Kapote is Munk! It’s the same person. It’s Mathias Modica. The Italo- German music nerd, labelowner, vinyl collector, keybord wizzard, DJ und producer based in Berlin. Modica is both artists: Munk & Kapote. And he is the creative mind behind Toy Tonics and Gomma. He started Toy Tonics with two friends five years ago. To release music of new talents he met around the world while djing. Before Toy Tonics he was running the (now sleeping) Gomma label. While Gomma was dedicated to indie disco and weird electronica, Toy Tonics stands for advanced funk inspirated dancemusic.
