The Gomma sublabel Toy Tonics is delivering their next collection of current seasons’ label hits. Ten tracks that got great feedback on dance floors, hit the top of sales charts or had heavy support by DJs:
First tune is by COEO. The guys heavy a good buzz and made it a few times on the top of the big house sales charts. You can find their tracks in playlist of all kind of House DJs: from Detroit Swindle and Oliver $ to Horse Meat Disco and DJ Harvey. Also Session Victim‘s remix for Kapote‘s “Fuck Music” is a good definition which direction the Toy Tonics label is taking with the last releases: bass driven, heavy rolling, funk house that some times recalls the Kenny Dope Hip Hip inspired House or the late 90ies. Or Detroit stuff on Red Planet. Sometimes there is a dirty, technoid energy – but never in your face, always with a big dose of raw soul. Black Loops, Rhode & Brown and Mona Lazette all reflect that vibe. Moody atmospheres in different shades.
Toy Tonics has a little crew of main artists. Apart of their releases other friends do one of EPs: Pezzner did such a single. On TT he is funkier than you might know him. Alixander III from Azari & III did a hypnotic Techno song – all produced on great old synths, with his friends on the mic… Sacha Robotti & Zombie Disco Squad also did a great EP that was a reason many people got for the first time their eye on the label. This compilation also includes remixes by label’s friends: Art of Tones, Hodini, Kian T, Legowelt.
