Kapote – Electric Slide EP [TOYT161]

Toy Tonics · Kapote – Electric Slide EP [TOYT161]

A new Toy Tonics EP! By label boss Kapote!

4 tracks for the dance floor inspired by Italo Disco, New Wave Funk and NYC 90ies House. A perfect sound for the new Y2K vibes on 2024 dancefloors.

A new Kapote release is a rare thing. Although he is a musician and producer in the first place, he rarely releases music. Why? In the last years, he was busy DJing every weekend around the world (as a regular at clubs like Berlin’s Panorama Bar and London’s Phonox, but also Festivals like Melt or Kala) and creating the Toy Tonics madness with his label friends. The Berlin based label that is the home base for 15 international artists (Cody Currie, Coeo, Gee Lane, Athlete Whippet, Baby‘s Berserk, Stump Valley…) became THE brand for colorful and diverse, innovative and ‘organic’ funk oriented post – digital dance music.

Kapote and his friends release music that connects analogue and band vibes with digital production in a very fresh and unique way. Influenced by European underground disco and American house, as well as Afro beats, new wave and soulful Electronica.

But he and his label have also achieved a great reputation for working with some of the hottest names in Berlin graphic design and art to release the limited edition Toy Tonics Shirts, the label’s own TT Pocket Poster Magazine, posters and organizing exhibitions and visual shows. Kapote aka Mathias Modica was and his three members, TT krew were busy building all this. Including also the Toy Tonics Jams. The label parties that started in an illegal venue in Berlin 2020 and exploded in 2023. With more than 120 TT events all over Europe. Where the label represents his very own vision of sound, vibe and style. Kapote organized all this with his krew. And it looks like 2024 will be even busier. With Toy Tonics Events at clubs but also museums (Palais de Tokio/ Paris, Milano Design Festival) or Kapote & Toy Tonics Crew playing with Kaytranada and Peggy Gou at Sonar Festival.
