Joe Claussell joins the “Mushroom House” series (on our sublabel Toy Tonics)

Mushroom-Vinyl-Cover-1-front_m

Our “Mushroom House” series for Afro, Indie & Psychadelic House music has arrived at EP 4.
And we are honored that one of the New York legends of African influenced House music has made an exclusive contribution: Joe Claussell. He used to run New York’s legendary clubnight “Body & Soul” along with Francois K in the 1990ies. An inspiration for every DJ who wanted to cross musical borders. For Toy Tonics Claussell made an Afro house rework of a tune by afrofunk band Karl Hector & the Malcouns.
The EP features also a new track by Vito & Druzzi. An amazing gamelan techno opus that has a unique balearic vibe. Vito & Druzzi usually release on Throne of Blood (NYC) and used to be in The Rapture before.. !!!

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

New Black Loops EP on Toy Tonics

Here comes the new Black Loops EP on our sublabel Toy Tonics! By now it’s exactly four years that the two italian producers (living in Berlin) released their debut EP „Right Now“ on the Gomma sublabel. Now they are Toy Tonics lead artists. They did four EPs with us since then. Some of them reached no.1 on the DJ suppliers Beatport, Traxsource and Juno. All kinds of DJs from Carl Craig to Tensnake supporting their releases. Nice to have them back on the label now. Expect these irresistible rolling groove patterns with that unique warm Black Loops-feeling.

Dimitri From Paris & DJ Rocca – Erodiscotique EP4

dimitri-labels-1_m

DIMITRI FROM PARIS and his brother in crime DJ ROCCA come back to Gomma with a new 3 track EP. His fourth release on Gomma. For those who are too young to know: Dimitri is a legend! You can put him in a row with old school wildstyle disco heroes like DJ Harvey, Baldelli or Francois K.

He has been doing consistently good music over the last 20 years. From his „A Night at the Playboy Mansion“ compilations to his own tracks, his always inspiring DJ sets and most of all: his never disappointing edits: his rework of Prince: „I Wanna Be Your Lover“ must be one of the most hammered edits of the last 10 years.

Dimitri comes from the Parisian school of Disco. He first appeared to the bigger public with his debut album „Sacrebleu“ in 1996. Coming along with the first French house wave (St.Germain, Super Discount, Daft Punk…) – he quickly became a worldwide respected DJ with a very own personal touch. He officially remixed artists like Bjork, New Order, Chic and even – officially – Michael Jackson. In 2005 he produced the album “Super Pop Venezuela“ for Los Amigos Invisibles which grabbed a nomination for a Grammy Award.
Let’s put it like this: Probably there is not one DJ with taste that hasn’t got his personal favorite Dimitri From Paris track in his bag.

Some years ago Dimitri teamed up with Italian producer, DJ and man of many talents DJ Rocca. Rocca might be known to many for his work as Ajello and Crimea X. Among the many names he produced music for he also made tracks with cosmic disco innovator DJ Baldelli. When Rocca and Dimitri are in the studio together, they somehow have a magic touch. Simple, yet effective, heavy disco influenced but never retro sounding little pearls they produce.
Glamorous as ever. Nasty as always.
