RIP Jaki Liebezeit

It’s so sad.. In december the legendary drummer of CAN, Jaki Liebezeit, was in the studio with Mathias Modica to record the drums for Mathias’ instrumental Jazzelectronics album, coming out this summer. And now suddenly he died. We recommend to listen to ALL CAN albums in case you didn’t know them yet.
Mathias had an interview with german Radio Puls about the recording session:

Out now on Toy Tonics: Rhode & Brown – Snabsnus EP

Toy Tonics’ main men Rhode & Brown are back with a new EP full of their very special, funk influenced, analogue sounding dance tracks. The two guys are part of that new, growing German scene of producers that are interested in the more jazz and analogue orientated and weird side of house music. As their label Toy Tonics is. Rhode & Brown’s new „Snabsnus“ EP shows a great range of their musical inspirations: funky acid basslines, hazy breakbeats, rare soul-samples – and this very special nasty atmosphere that is becoming their trademark sound.

Gomma Podcast #134 – COEO

The COEO brothers are hot right now. The two guys from Munich are getting much love from all over the world for their special soul-driven House tracks they release on Toy Tonics. Over the last two years they had several no.1 singles on Traxsource and Juno – and their vinyl sold out immediately. Now they decided to create a mixtape consisting only of COEO remakes and personal edits of old tracks they love. So this mixtape is totally special! Not one of these tracks is available for purchasing… There is some beautiful music here. COEO have the magic touch…

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.
