Happy to annouce a new 12″ on TOY TONICS. A 4 track EP by upcoming German house producers RHODE & BROWN. Including a nice remix by KYODAI from LOCAL TALK. R & B are kids! Only 21 but already have releases on PetFood, Needwant, Union Jack and a lot more in the pipeline.

Hard Ton are back. Their 2nd EP on Toy Tonics. What to expect? As usual they deliver 90ies House made with the classic sounds of Juno, 808, 909. And and even more effective remix by DJ SPRINKLES.
This is House. Real House! House that makes the booty shake.
After EP’s and remixes of DJ Steef, Hard Ton, John Tejada, Daniel Maloso, Dimitri from Paris now here comes an extremy effective EP by Australian producer Jad & The Ladyboy. Dry and pushing futuristic deep house music. Including an great remix by upcoming producer KOLOMBO.
New German outsider house label TOY TONICS comes up with a superfat SLOW HOUSE 6 track EP from mighty producer DJ STEEF.
It’s not Paris. This here comes from Marseille. A city that used to be big in Hip Hop – and now has a huge funky house scene. Many people there translated the boom of Hip Hop and Soul into fat, funky, slow house. DJ STEEF is one of the main guys. His releases on Magic Wand, Editorial, ZE, Superbreak and DiscoDat he has been played regularly by DJ’s like James Murphy, Weatherall and Tim Sweeney.
