New KAPOTE EP. With remixes by magic BYRON THE AQUARIUS (Sound Signature) and GIOVANNI DAMICO (Lumberjacks in Hell). Toy Tonics founder & main producer Kapote comes back after eight months with a 2 track EP.
Somebody called it Jazz Funk House – and that fits. Crazy flute and rhodespiano solos played by Mathias „Munk“ Modica on Kapote’s heavy funk basslines and rolling drum patterns. It’s house, it’s broken beat.
This is a pre-release to the KAPOTE ALBUM that will be released on Toy Tonics in April.
The music reminds the early 2000 West London sound of Archive Records & Seji as well as the original NYC jazz house from the Kenny Dope and Joe Claussell school. It’s not far from the vibe Gilles Peterson and Bradley Zero have been spreading for years, but the music adds new elements to it. Especially the complex way Toy Tonics co-founder Mathias Munk Modica plays his solos, influenced by the school of Hard Bob and Fusion jazz makes these music special. In fact Modica has been studying Jazzpiano at the Manhattan School of Music before getting into club culture. And Kapote is a big love for the Brazilian Funk sound of the 1970ies. You can hear that.
