100% Gomma Mixed By Severino Of Horse Meat Disco

Horse Meat Disco are steady supporters of Gomma since a long time.
The 100% Gomma series invites friends of the label to do a own selection of the Gomma catalogue. In form of a DJ MIX and a compilation.
The last mix (2013) came courtesy of Jacques Renault. He created a cosmic balearic selection. His compilation has been no.1 of JUNO Download house albums charts for six weeks. The new one by Severino used some of the more energetic tracks of the catalogue: Luke Solomon, Morgan Geist, DJ Kaos, Dimitri From Paris, Munk, HessIsMore and many more
Lot of new tracks – but also older tracks – that still sound fresh.
You can get the whole mix as a one hour mixed podcast or as several tracks.

Official video: Munk – The Wurlitzer Wank

Munk‘s last single for his release on Jennifer Cardini’s Correspondant label just came out on vinyl. The lead track gets heavy support. From Soul Clap to &ME, Axel Boman or Massimiliano Pagliara… so much love for the song.
So we decided to make a video. Shot in the dirty Sonora Market from Mexico City. Filmed by Kapote.

Munk – The Correspondant Gomma Joints

This vinyl EP is a collaboration between Paris label Correspondant and Germany’s Gomma records.
Remixes by Los Angeles’ finest psychedelic electronic producer Secret Circuit (Beats in Space records) and German shooting star Lauer (partner of Gerd Janson of Tuff City Kids).

Why this EP?

Gomma has a long history with the Paris scene. Mathias ‘Munk‘ Modica who runs Gomma (and sublabel Toy Tonics) has been living in France for many years. He worked with many parisian artists from DJ Chloe (on Munk’s first album „Aperitivo“ 2004) to the Ed Banger Crew or Black Strobe. Probably apart of Berlin there is no city in the world that saw more Gomma events than Paris. Seems only a project with Jennifer Cardini missed. So Jennifer invited Mathias last year to send over tracks. Decision was made fast. And so „Wurlitzer Wank“ and The „Bösus Bounce“ came out on Correspondant.

The other 2 tracks will come out on Gomma digitally later this year. For now: vinyl only.

The music: You can somehow call it influenced by psychedelic ideas and the 1990ies Detroit electro funk sound of labels like red planet or Gladio. Analogue instruments, funk loops made on a MPC and weird, sick synthesizer melodies. Reminds of the early Munk productions that had no vocals.

New Toy Tonics Release by Zhut & Kapote

ZHUT & KAPOTE are part of that new wave of Berlin producer kids that are doing dirty, funk-based house music. Max Graef, Session Victim, Hodini… There is a growing scene of producers that do dance music that is far away from that 90ies techno revival sound that has become kind of a Berlin tourist cliche. These new kids love old jazz vinyl, MPC-productions and old synths. They want a warm, nasty sound that has it’s roots in soul music – not in Ableton Live standard Deep House sound setups.

Kapote already released an EP and some edits on Toy Tonics, while Zhut is part of tech-funk group Black Loops. The boys combine old, rare samples from the 1970ies with their own way of playing live drum machines and their fucked up synthesizers. It’s jazzy, funky house music. Reminding certain records from the french wave like La Funk Mob or Versatile and the music of American maestros like Paul Johnson or Detroit’s Red Planet.

RELEASED 18 APR 2016
