Joel Holmes – Osmosis [TOYT117]

STREAM / DOWNLOAD / VINYL

Joel Holmes is a phenomenon that fits perfectly into the musical scenario of the next years. 35-year-old American jazz pianist and 4 times Grammy nominated. He was the musical director of Carl Craig’s Synthesizer ensemble as well as the keyboarder in legendary Grammy wining band of Roy Hargrove (the IT jazz artist from the late 1990ies, who later died.)

Holmes is always hunting for the new, so he moved to Berlin a few years ago. Being interested in what’s happening in that new dance world. Similar to Jazzers from the 1970ies like Herbie Hancock and Quincy Jones who turned into disco stars Joel, the jazzer wanted to connect with the new Berlin electronic scene. He succeeded, teamed up with upcoming London house kid Cody Currie and the Toy Tonics crew who is working on new sounds in Berlin that connect the organic and jazz musicians scene with the dance and house world. Developing a new style of Jazz-House… (that has nothing to do with sampled jazzy‘ house! If you know what we mean).

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 us. 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!
