MUNK Show on Gilles Peterson’ WORLWIDE FM

Worldwide FM invited Mathias do do a radioshow. They wanted him to play only Gomma, Toy Tonics and Kryptox (our new label) releases.
The show was on air last friday. You can listen to it here online. The funny thing: They call him „the Wes Andersons of electronic music“. Not bad :)

New Munk Song for German compilation

FullSizeRender_s

Mr. Munk hasn’t released anything since his last EP on parisian label Correspondant two years ago. He only co-produced records for Toy Tonics artists (and is working on a Neo-Jazz/ Kraut solo album). But he also teamed up with Paul Pötsch. Frontman of leading German indierock band Trümmer. Together they are working on a couple of German indiedisco songs. Great stuff in the making.

As a little appetizer they made a freaky track called “UFO” for the “KEINE BEWEGUNG 2″ compilation of Berlin label STAATSAKT.
A compilation that portraits the new German No Wave, Punkfunk and Indiedisco scene. There is a lot happening in the german underground. Great stuff.
PÖTSCH & MUNK will have more in 2018. #MakeGermanDiscoGreatAgain

Gomma Disco Jams EP1

gomma disco jams ep 1 Artwork v2

Disco champs James Murphy – Munk – Nick Siano – Dimitri from Paris on one EP!
Why? Because it’s 2017 and Disco is infiltrating the electronic music world again. So it makes sense to put the spotlight on a few essential tracks that preceeded the new Disco wave.
