A new artist on TT!
Athlete Whippet join the Toy Tonics family! The London/ Berlin-based duo makes a sound that is based on futuristic breakbeats combined with deep jazz chord progressions and a kind of funk that sounds more like it was made in 2100 than in a year behind us. Definitely not a retro record. The “Vesta EP” is a further proof that the connection between London and Berlin, that has been build by several Toy Tonics artists (Cody Currie is the latest in the gang), is becoming a strong one. The combination of the Berlin dancefloor sound and the UK jazz fusion soul is changing the scene and creating new moods. Neo soul and house, broken beats and disco… There are a lot of things happening in that new world and Athlete Whippet could be a strong player in that sound.
The two guys already achieved great support by UK radio DJs such as Annie Mac and Jamz Supernova for their first collaborative EP “Touch” (with Metronomy’s Olugbenga), followed by their 2020 solo EP “Your Love Is Lifting Me”, an ode to compassion and solidarity, and remixes for labels including Rhythm Section.
