Cody Currie – Moves EP [TOYT113]

STREAM / DOWNLOAD / VINYL

London born, Berlin living Cody Currie comes with his first solo EP on Toy Tonics.
The first of a couple of EPs he will do on his musical journey with the German label crew. Cody is a special talent. People who follow the new UK Dance-Jazz scene know him already. He studied music in London, before jumping into releasing music on labels like Razor n Tape & Classic Music Company that made him instantly one of the key names to follow among the new generation of producers that connect Jazz, Soul with House, broken beats and futuristic elements.
Cody moved to Berlin 2 years ago and instantly connected with the young growing jazz oriented scene over there. He met US jazz pianist Joel Holmes. 4 times Grammy nominated former keyboarder of the legendary Roy Hargrove band and Carl Craig’s synthesizer ensemble. Also living in Berlin now.
Together they released two EPs on Toy Tonics last year that created a certain buzz.
After that releases Toy Tonics and Cody decided to go on together. And so here you get MOVES.

Four moody broken beat tracks (+ a house version of Moves).
The lead song “Moves” features Rinse FM radio host Eliza Rose on the mic. Other features are London born jazz talents Andreas Kon & Ally McMahon.

On this EP, Cody moves into an atmospheric garage-y broken beat territory as an ode to his London roots. Rich chords, catchy hooks and hard hitting rhythms.

Toy Tonics Edit Series part 8: Kapote Euro Disco Reworks

Toy Tonics loves Europe. And so we thought it could be nice to make a musical statement: Let’s give a little sign in these times of Brexit and Anti-European autocratic tendencies in many European countries:
So our brother Kapote made the EURO DISCO REWORKS.
5 rare European disco and new wave tracks from the 1980ies. From Italy, Germany, England, Spain and Turkey (Yes, we want Turkey in Europe, but without their dictator Erdogan).
Please enjoy these reworks that Kapote made for his own DJ sets (years ago) – and now we release for the end of the year – just on BANDCAMP. For a limited period. That shit is a bomb!

COEO – Piano Workout [TOYT114]

STREAM / DOWNLOAD / VINYL

COEO are back on Toy Tonics! After uninterrupted touring around the globe, followed by a short creative break the guys come back with an even stronger sound. With the new EP they go more underground again. Its addressed to the clubs and night owls out there, who turn night into day and won’t stop dancing!

The sound is based on classic house patterns and includes a lot of cool saxophones, big piano stabs & rhythmic piano solos. They even go tribal, use arpeggios and switch into breakbeat heaven. The four Originals are a great next step in the COEO evolution. The unique warm, catchy atmosphere of the tracks can create that special COEO euphoria which made them a lot of fans. From Moodymann to Disclosure, Mall Grab to Kenny Dope, the list is long.

It’s fantastic to see how popular they became over the last couple of years. The last COEO vinyl sold over 2500 copies and some of their tracks have millions of Spotify plays. It’s DJ FOOD. Pure bliss!

“Sorry For The Late Reply” contains a sample of “Was It Just A Game” by Solution Feat Tafuri, licensed courtesy of VJS Productions.

Rhode & Brown feat. Kosmo Kint – Thru The Night [TOYT112S]

STREAM / DOWNLOAD

Munich DJs & producers Rhode & Brown teamed up with singer Kosmo Kint. NYC born and now Berlin living vocalist that already appeared on two Toy Tonics EPs last year by Mangabey and Sam Ruffillo (Ride my bike!!). This time the music goes deeper. Light swinging beats by Rhode & Brown and that beautiful chords define the base for what Kosmo adds in his catchy NY Neo-Soul style. It reminds of the stuff that Channel Tres and Yaeji are doing, but adds a more R&B, east-cost vibe to it. The beat has a slight 2 step feel or could also come from the Detroit bass universe. But it was made in Germany and is a nice example on how different influences and vibes can come together nowadays in the danceworld.

The events are rescheduled and will happen in 2021. Meanwhile Toy Tonics has released a couple of big tracks. They are all collected on this compilation.

This is a short version of a nasty hip house track that Toy Tonics boss Kapote released on his “What it is” album from last year. The track only got released as a long version. But the track got so much feedback that it made sense to make this new short version.

Sam Ruffillo – Sport House [TOYT108]

STREAM / DOWNLOAD

In times when nightlife is impossible, it makes sense to find new concepts: New Toy Tonics artist Sam Ruffillo from Italy had the right idea: He made an uptempo disco EP for daytime fun. Putting house into a Sport context. And it works. After sending his demos to the label, Toy Tonics boss Kapote joined him in the studio and brought the new Toy Tonics vocalist Kosmo Kint with him. They re-arranged Sam’s tunes, added some hot vocals and here is the result: 4 deep & funky jazz house tracks. recorded with a lot of real instruments (bass, keys, guitars..) and combined with the sound of vintage drum machines. The new italian dance wave is coming up strong.
