Black Loops Felipe Gordon Jad & The Ladyboy Kapote Metropolitan Soul Museum Releases

Jockey Jams No. 2 [TOYT072]

“Jockey Jams” are the Various Artists EPs on Toy Tonics.
No.2 features Toy Tonics frontline boys Black Loops with a collabo track: The voice comes from Felipe Gordon – upcoming DJ and producer from Bogota/Colombia. Probably the most melodic and swingful Black Loops work ever. Felipe Gordon is also included with an own track here: A wonky, total drunken sounding DIY House orgy. The filtered piano will keep playing in your head for a long time..
Australian Surf dude and funky House kid Jad & The is also included in this EP. He has been one of the first ones to release on Toy Tonics 3 years ago. By now he has also records out on Sonar Kollektiv, Mike Simonetti’s new MK II imprint and is a regular in the Berlin club scene, where he lives now. His Disco Vintage House works are more tools, than songs. With an great soulish vibe and often incredible impact on the dancefloor.
London duo Metropolitan Soul Museum are back on Toy Tonics with a piano tune, too. But their track reminds us more the Detroit way of beats playing. This song has a marvellous piano solo heading though all the jam. Warm, melancholic, still driving ffwrd.
Last but not least on this EP is Berlin based Jacky Mingo. Kid with lot of records and much passion for filters, big chords and straight forward 4/4 beats.

TOYT047: Metropolitan Soul Museum – Tesla EP

The latest Toy Tonics release comes straight from London with a remix by Germany’s finest TUFF CITY KIDS.

Metropolitan Soul Museum or MSM are Nick & Filippo. The pair have been running together Nick’s Teng Records for the past 3 years – the label was set up to release Nick’s Akra project music as well as other artists. Heads will remember this great imprint. Always crossing borders. Never being boring. Nick was also part of Mock & Toof, a duo that had quite a buzz when they were releasing freaky house music just few years ago.

MSM have had a good start already: they self-released their “Ruff Trk 4″ a few months ago – including a remix by ROUND, the guy from Talabot’s Hivern Discs. The interesting thing about MSM is also their live act: Playing with 707, Vintage keys, Machine and various effects – a similar set up for their studio production brought on the dance floor. There will be a lot more to come from MSM. This is just the beginning.
