Toy Tonics summer hottness! Every August the Toy Tonics Top Tracks compilation brings the 10 biggest Toy Tonics tracks from the last 12 months. On this new issue: tunes by Toy Tonics own artists Kapote, Black Loops and Coeo, but also tracks by friends of the label who made One Off – EPs recently:
Harry Wolfman with that marvelous funkdisco tune The Accord from his Toy Tonics debut EP. Also: Demuja, who joined the TT family with an four tracker last march. J on G was the hit track on that EP. Smoother than his usual stuff, but extremely catchy. Also there is Jad Lee aka Jad & The. The Australian surfer buddy who had started his career on Toy Tonics some years ago as had a comeback last year with Strings Never Win. The track has been hammered by DJ’s all over. In fact 2018 seems to be the year where Toy Tonics is getting greater visibility. Biggest moment for the label – yeah – was discovering that Moodymann is currently opening his sets with a Toy Tonics track. (Coeo: Back in the Days). Also a fun fact: Toy Tonics had been chosen by MIXMAG as one of the “10 best new labels 2017”.
So if you didn’t had the chance to listen to Toy Tonics releases recently you should check this compilation out… lotta nasty, funky, handmade houseparty grooves.
Funky times! Here comes a collection of the most successful Toy Tonics tracks of last year. 10 tracks that made it into the house music top 10 of the big digital DJ food suppliers and were repressed on vinyl.
Music by the main label artists COEO, Black Loops, Kapote, Rhode & Brown. And also 4 tunes that were were big last year – made by Toy Tonics friends: Doug Gomez, the NYC Latin House spcialist, Adesse Versions, who smashed it with his EP on Toy Tonics last year and the fabulous Italian Sinth Freak Kian T with his wonky Funk House.
Not to forget the main remixes of last years’ Toy Tonics season: our favorite Techno godfather Mark E, long time Toy Tonics friends Tuff City Kids, and the great Nachtbraker from Heist recordings.
TOY TONICS from Berlin is delivering their next collection of current seasons’ label hits.
Ten tracks that got great feedback on dance floors, hit the top of sales charts or had heavy support by DJ’s:
First tune is by COEO. The guys heavy a good buzz and made it a few times on the top of the big house sales charts. You can find their tracks in playlist of all kind of House DJs: from Detroit Swindle and Oliver $ to Horse Meat Disco and DJ Harvey. Also Session Victim‘s remix for Kapote‘s “Fuck Music” is a good definition which direction the Toy Tonics label is taking with the last releases: bass driven, heavy rolling, funk house that some times recalls the Kenny Dope Hip Hip inspired House or the late 90ies. Or Detroit stuff on Red Planet. Sometimes there is a dirty, technoid energy – but never in your face, always with a big dose of raw soul. Black Loops, Rhode & Brown and Mona Lazette all reflect that vibe. Moody atmospheres in different shades.
Toy Tonics has a little crew of main artists. Apart of their releases other friends do one of EPs: Pezzner did such a single. On TT he is funkier than you might know him. Alixander III from Azari & III did a hypnotic Techno song – all produced on great old synths, with his friends on the mic… Sacha Robotti & Zombie Disco Squad also did a great EP that was a reason many people got for the first time their eye on the label. This compilation also includes remixes by label’s friends: Art of Tones, Hodini, Kian T, Legowelt.
The second compilation of top tracks on Toy Tonics.
Ten tunes that we released in 2014. You could hear them in the sets of friends like DJ Sprinkles, Eats Everything, Tensnake, Justin Martin, Audiojack, Todd Terje. The comp includes original tracks and remixes by Glenn Astro (you might know him form his collabos with Max Graef), Jaymo & Andy George. The comp comes on Beatport only.
Our first Toy Tonics compilation.
5 original tracks by shootings stars Rhode & Brown, COEO, Black Loops, Ricardo Baez and remixes by friends of the label: DJ Sprinkles, Sei A, James Welsh, Kyodai.
Like a “Best of”… but it’s hard to choose the “best” tracks – as they are all good… of course!
