New on Toy Tonics: Black Loops – Cassette EP

Here comes a new Toy Tonics EP by Black Loops including remixes by munich based COEO and Neovinyl’s Carlo. They go smooth this time. Rhodes pianos, some jazzy chords, a rolling beat.
The two guys know how to make a swinging loop. And they got style. No wonder as one is a funk drummer – Riccardo – who lives in Berlin and the other – Gabriele – makes his money as a photographer living in Milan. Every two months they meet in Riccardo’s studio space in Berlin Kreuzberg and jam for a few nights and days. Doing new tracks, mixtapes, loops. Djing in local bars and clubs.

Barotti – Never Talk Again (Video)

Clipboard01

Berlin based performance artist and musican Marco Barotti comes with a new video. If you didn’t have the chance to hear his album from last year (Barotti: Rising LP) now you get a wonderful reminder. Never Talk Again is a song, or better, an opus magnus of electronic – avantgardism. Straight out of Barotti’s phantastic mind. Recorded with an orchestra of strings and horns and the sound of some vintage sinths from the 1970ies. All made in Marocco in long jam sessions. Then edited and reworked in Berlin.
The video for Never Talk Again was shot by Camilla Mantovani.

Mushroom House EP1

This „Mushroom House EP“ is the first release in a series of EPs that will feature tracks from the new wave of weirdo house that is influenced by ethno, afro, psychedelic music. On this first 4 track EP you get new music from ALIEN ALIEN aka Italian producers Rodion & Hugo Sanchez with an Detroit techno kind of track with mushroomey space voices that drive a dancefloor crazy. (Alien Alien previously released on Turbo, Nein, Slow Motion, Gomma). Then Australian surfer kids and house producers JAD & THE LADYBOY doing a afro heavy old school MPC house jam. (Jad released also records on Exploited and Toy Tonics). Gomma boss MUNK is featured with the high in demand Rebolledo Version of SURF SMURF and as a bonus track you get the legendary DJ KOZE remix of WHOMADEWHO’s Keep me in my plane. Releases some years ago, three times repressed and sold out. Sounding now fresher then ever.

The MUSHROOM HOUSE series features mostly new tracks, produced exclusively for TOY TONICS.

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.
