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.
Rhode & Brown have made this new EP in a little house in L’estrechure – in the south of France. You can feel the chilled vibe of the Provence here. It got that positive, soulful atmosphere.
Fun fact: When the boys met in 2010 they were selling each other electronic equipment. There was a mistake and they started to fight. While fighting they realised they have the same musical interests, style ideas and passions. And here we are in 2016: They released 3 EPs on Toy Tonics + tracks on Let’s Play House, Needwant, Rose Records from Leipzig. And now they even started their own label Slam City Jams.
Yes, 2016 is a good year for Friedrich Trede and Stephan Braun aka Rhode & Brown: They are part of that new Munich crew around Charlie Club, Toy Tonics, Public Possession. All people that are obsessed with obscure vinyl, analogue equipment and experimenting with different unusual forms of House music and electronic Funk. These different forms of FunkHouse music are exploding everywhere right now: In Berlin with the The Money Sex crew, in Sweden Studio Barnhus or Australia with the guys from Voyage records. All connected – all in the similar vibe.
