Toy Tonics pres. „Mushroom House“ Compilation

Toy Tonics records presents MUSHROOM HOUSE – a compilation full of Afro & Ethno/House and psychedelic Techno. Exclusive new music by Auntie Flo, Hyenah, DJ Koze, Kapote, Daniel Avery, Munk & Rebolledo and others. 15 exclusive tracks that combine elements from recent deep disco, house and electronica with sounds and vibes from Africa, Arabia or other unusual references.

Mushroom House features several African influences jams by Auntie Flo, Kapote, Haaksman. Some other tracks sound like the artists took an LSD trip while making the track (Capablanca‘s „Acido“ or Munk & Rebolledo‘s „Surf Smurf“). You have tracks that are more on the Weirdo-Techno side of things (Daniel Avery, Alien Alien from Multi Culti). You have the Afro House shooting stars Hyenah (a current favorite of the scene’s main man Black Coffee). And there is this great remix by Panorama Bar regular Massimiliano Pagliara (remixing Barotti‘s masterpiece „She Once Knew“).

It’s 2016 and it’s time to bring more different flavors in dancemusic. The Toy Tonics crew is doing it’s part and adds (one more time) a fresh edge to the actual state of house music.

New Gomma Podcast by Dj Kaos

DJ Kaos made a mixtape for us! You might know our Berlin Amigo: He did great records – first as part of Terranova, later under his own name on DFA, Rong and many other labels. Kaos has been fighting for the funk on dance floors along with Gomma since the mid 90ies! In fact he had been djing at Mathias Modica’s Munich partys before Gomma records was even started. Kaos in Berlin and Mathias in Munich brought New York street art, new electronic music, heavy freestyle vinyl diggerism and an ecclectic attitude into Germany very early. Kaos also made a great remix for Gomma’s Rodion back in 2008 that we recommend to listen to – sounds super fresh now: https://open.spotify.com/album/46hUpMR5FzTPRE0RSU2N11

1. Grand Funk Railroad – I Can Feel Him In The Morning
2. First Choice – Love And Happiness
3. David Keaton – Gloria
4. Unknown
5. The Flirts – Passion (Remix)
6. Wild Rumpus – Cloudhopping

Out now: Munk – The Bolero Bunuel EP

The last two Munk releases (on Correspondant and Local Talk) already showed the new side of Mathias Modica’s musical output.
Instrumental, hypnotic, yet funky and tribal mid tempo tracks with almost no vocals.
Now Mr. Munk takes it a few steps further. He is flying his Techno into a Sun Ra Space. „The Bolero Bunuel“ is based on a jazzfunk bassline and some live drumming. The melodies remind of some strange arabian sci-fi things. „The Naked Baam“ reminds of the first Motorbass tracks, back from Paris 1995. Filterfunk! „The Oboe Onyx“ – Boards of Canada could have been somewhere in the studio when this was made. The beat is weird… not quantized. The classical instruments and melodic lines remind of some compositions of late Ligeti or P‰rt. This new Munk EP comes out with Remixes from Lauer and Red Axes.

Out on Toy Tonics: „Top Tracks Vol. 4“

The Gomma sublabel Toy Tonics is delivering their next collection of current seasons’ label hits. Ten tracks that got great feedback on dance floors, hit the top of sales charts or had heavy support by DJs:

First tune is by COEO. The guys heavy a good buzz and made it a few times on the top of the big house sales charts. You can find their tracks in playlist of all kind of House DJs: from Detroit Swindle and Oliver $ to Horse Meat Disco and DJ Harvey. Also Session Victim‘s remix for Kapote‘s “Fuck Music” is a good definition which direction the Toy Tonics label is taking with the last releases: bass driven, heavy rolling, funk house that some times recalls the Kenny Dope Hip Hip inspired House or the late 90ies. Or Detroit stuff on Red Planet. Sometimes there is a dirty, technoid energy – but never in your face, always with a big dose of raw soul. Black Loops, Rhode & Brown and Mona Lazette all reflect that vibe. Moody atmospheres in different shades.

Toy Tonics has a little crew of main artists. Apart of their releases other friends do one of EPs: Pezzner did such a single. On TT he is funkier than you might know him. Alixander III from Azari & III did a hypnotic Techno song – all produced on great old synths, with his friends on the mic… Sacha Robotti & Zombie Disco Squad also did a great EP that was a reason many people got for the first time their eye on the label. This compilation also includes remixes by label’s friends: Art of Tones, Hodini, Kian T, Legowelt.
