It’s nice. Our sublabel Toy Tonics is getting so good feedback. Now again an Toy Tonics artists reched no.1 in the sales charts of Traxsource/ Juno Downloads. Munich based producer team COEO are on the roll…
London raised, Berlin living Mona Lazette – Munk vocalist and former guestvoice on singles of Kele, Catz ‘n Dogz and others released her first solo on Gomma sublabel Toy Tonics.
The song is a sweet soul-house tune based on a sample that some of you guys might know. It was used by this certain Hip Hop crew from the 1990ies. But this new version is quite different. When the bass kicks in… boooom.
Our Gomma head honcho Mr. Munk has been invited to make some releases on labels of friends… and so he did: He just released an EP on Jennifer Cardini’s Correspondant label. Now he comes with a release on Local Talk: “Hot Medusa” including a remix by Kai Alce.
Check one track here. Jazz comes back. Big time.
German TV produced an one hour documentary about Disco – Now & Then.
A long part of the film talks about Munich and the influence the city had on the evolution of Disco.
The movie includes a long interview with Mathias Modica/ Munk. If you speak german – watch it.
Vintage House freaks and soul kids: Rhode & Brown from Munich are back on our sublabel 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 Munich’s 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.
Gomma and Chromemusic ran a temporary offspace in munich for a few months. A gallery and barspace where several artists were showing their work and Gomma DJ’s playing the music.
