Review: Mancunian Kevin Gorman is back with some more lo-slung soul excursions as Adesse Versions. Although usually appearing on his own eponymous imprint or for Glasgow's Numbers, he appears this time for Berlin's Toy Tonics. Starting out with the emotive and dusty deepness of "After Hours" (which soon introduces the most phased and psyched out guitar lick ever) there's then the thumping yet soulful vocal house of "Radio Rahman" with some seriously Kerri Chandler style keys. Closing out this EP in style are the filtered disco loops of "Explain It" which is so infectious and would make even DJ Sneak or Phil Weeks stand up and notice!

Review: Following the break-up of Azari & III, Alixander has delivered this EP for Toy Tonics. Working with vocalists from his hometown of Toronto, he drops a three-tracker that pushes house music to its outer limits. "(She's So) Young", which features Kim E & Gingy, is the most conventional track, its deep acidic lines and playful female vocals chopped up to seductively claim "there's a few girls for the new girls". "The Black Room", featuring Terence Kissner, is more discordant and the evocative vocals are underpinned by detuned riffs, howling analogue tones and steely percussion. By the time he gets to "Something 'Bout You" featuring Chobo, it sounds like Alixander is throwing away the rulebook with the vocals surfacing in a soupy but metallic arrangement.

Review: There's something deceptively atmospheric about "If You", the deep, filter-laden lead cut from Italian producer Ricardo Baez's debut EP for Toy Tronics. While deep, woozy and almost aquatic in parts, it's propelled forward by hissing cymbals, booming beats and some classic Italian house style riffs. It's good, but arguably "The Message" - an exercise in basement-bothering old skool nostalgia - is even better. The EP's third original cut, the intoxicating, acid bass-driven "The Language of Heaven" (think hypnotic organs and delay-laden preacher vocals) is also rather impressive. If that's not enough to wet your whistle, then Sei A's off-kilter remix of "If You", all rigid bottom end and wonky beats, is definitely worth a listen.

Review: Italian producer Ricardo Baez returns to Toy Tonics - who released his impressive debut single, The Message - with more thickset, goodtime deep house grooves. Opener "We Come Around" sets the tone, delivering a smile-inducing dose of classic US house revivalism with a modern deep house twist. Moda chiefs Jaymo & Andy George remix, hitting all the right notes on a twitchy house special. "Dancefloor" sounds like the sort of thing Danny Tenaglia may have played (and made) around 1995 (no bad thing in our book), while Hard Ton's remix is bright, breezy and classic sounding without being too reverential to the period. Best of all, though, is "Sweat", an eccentric but borderline brilliant fusion of Latin percussion, disco, crunk and 808 handclaps.

Review: Berlin-based twosome Black Loops give the impression of being committed party animals. Certainly, their balls-out, bass-heavy approach to house - part Mosca, part Huxley, part Futureboogie Recordings - should find favour with those whose approach to dance music is shaped by too many messy afterparties. On this EP for Toy Tonics, there's plenty of robust, hip-wigglin' fare powered by bowel-bothering sub action. "Right Now" itself is probably the pick - thanks, in no small part, to heavy bass, dreamy breakdowns and some choice vocal samples - but the shinier "LGB" runs it close. Double Dash goes all "powder house" on his revivalist tech-house twist.

Review: Berlin/Milan based Italian twosome Riccardo Paffetti and Gabriele Micheli have previously impressed with their chunky blends of bass-heavy deep house, classic Italian house and basement-friendly Berlin techno. Here they once again the Black Loops alias for their first single on Toy Tonics since 2013. They begin with the classic bump of "No Questions" - all warm chords, heavyweight sub, US house shuffle and Todd Edwards style vocal cut-ups. One-time Dirtybird regular Ardalan provides the obligatory remix, roughening up the edges via murkier basslines, wild electronics and rolling, post-fidget grooves. Finally, the duo offers up something altogether deeper and more melodious in the shape of "Suki", a picturesque roller blessed with a particularly spellbinding breakdown.

Review: Hardworking Italian duo Riccardo Paffetti and Gabriele Michelli have enjoyed a relatively low-key career to date, despite the obvious quality of their chunky, bass-heavy deep house releases. This latest EP for Toy Tronics - their first for a year - is once again packed full of tried-and-tested dancefloor fare. They begin with the hazy, jazz-flecked bump of "Cassette 2", where sparkly keys and delay-laden vocal samples ride a deep and chunky groove, before ramping up the pressure with the robust analogue beats and bleep-era sub-bass of "Cassette 7". COEO adds even more swing to "Cassette 2" on a toe-tapping, hip-wiggling revision, while Carlo turns "Cassette 7" into a low-slung, Derrick Carter style boompty thumper.

Review: Since starting their career with a couple of well-regarded EPs on Toy Tonics in 2013, Black Loops has been label hopping. This return to the German imprint follows four years spent churning out EPs for Gruuv, Neovinyl and, most recently, Pets Recordings. Opener "Le Mirage" is a bustling and bass-heavy affair, with melodic deep house pleasantries wrapping themselves around a chunky, U.S-garage influenced groove. The rhythmic skip and bass-heavy bounce continues on "Red Light", where fuzzy electric piano parts come to the fore, while "Sex (Part 2)" effortlessly joins the dots between the hazy loveliness of Italian dream house and the bustle of classic Kerri Chandler records. 'Sex", which boasts a wonderfully sleazy spoken vocal, completes another ear-pleasing package.

Review: The second volume in Toy Tonics' occasional Jockey Jams series is something of a gift to DJs. Although naturally rooted in deep house, each of the showcased tracks offers something distinctively different. So, while Felipe Gordon's "Rinogal" is an funk-fuelled house bumper built around an elastic, acid-fired synth bassline and trippy late night effects, Metropolitan Soul Museum's "Saab" is a delicate, warm-up friendly fusion of lilting synths, bubbly electronics and the kind of twinkling pianos frequently found on vintage Italian dream house records. The eclecticism continues elsewhere, too, from the Adonis-via-Rimini thrills of Jacky Mingo's wonderfully positive "Brothers Cup", to the jazzy warmth of Black Loops and analogue house bleeps of Jad's "Overpriced Kaiser Chips".

Review: Berlin's Toy Tonics latest trick is Jockey Jams, the first in an 'irregular series of various artist EPs'. They've rustled up an interesting mix too, starting with the warm mid-paced throb of "Sex' by Black Loops, which features the voice of Scarlett Johansen (from the movie Her). Elsewhere "Waterfalls" by Moritz Butschek, which has that sleazy DJ Hell sound, Portugal's Pixel82 sees his diva house jam Going On given a choppy, hypnotic rework by Australian surfer dude Jad & The Ladyboy. Lastly New York's Doug Gomez wraps things up nicely with the clavinet-driven old school funk joint "Make Your Body Move".

Review: Having previously impressed with their releases on Seven Music, Sccucci Manucci, DaBit and Globelle Records, Munich-based deep house duo Coeo pop up on Toy Tonics. As its title suggests, "Feel Me" is a huggable chunk of tactile electronic deep house, with classic late night vocal hooks riding a warm and fuzzy groove - all crunchy synth bass, bouncy pianos, dreamy pads and classic US garage organs. Sometime Futureboogie and Wolf Music man James Welsh delivers the obligatory remix, offering up a wonderfully atmospheric deep jazz-house interpretation. It's arguably his best remix to date. In its' original form, "Say No More" is deep, breezy and summery, with jaunty keys and a borderline Balearic vibe. The longer, more electronic sounding "DJ Version" is a little tougher and groovier, whilst retaining the original's casually humid feel.

Review: Having spent the last few years giddily hopping between labels, COEO has decided to settle down. Flesh World is the Munich-based twosome's second release of 2017 for Toy Tonics, an imprint they first graced back in 2014. As usual, they're in a positive frame of mind, serving up a trio of tracks rich with both the feel good pulse of disco and boogie, and the metronomic heaviness of house. Both "Flesh World" and "In Motion" explore similar sonic territory, with the duo working a range of ear-pleasing samples from killer old disco and boogie cuts. Best of all, though, is the Kapote Drum Jam version of "Flesh World", which adds a little percussive pressure to an already celebratory workout.

Happily, they hit the ground running with the rushing positivity of "Mydonna", a bumpin' chunk of peak-time house goodness built around some superb disco samples and a bustling groove. The accompanying, "alternate cut" smartly emphasizes some of the original instrumentation, whilst adding some subtle swing to the disco-house drums. On the flip, you'll find the deep, smooth and sensual "Torrow", and the breezy, atmospheric, piano-laden shuffle of "Coast To Coast".

"Native Riddim" is a sweet, summertime scorcher with some of the funkiest keys we've heard from these guys, while the alternate mix is a whole load deeper and a lil' more Detroit-esque. "Select Language" is the banger here, though, bringing in some tight garage swing and one sweltering bassline.

Review: To date, Bavarian duo Coeo has released a number of quietly impressive deep house singles on a variety of labels, including Let's Play House, Seven Music and Dabit. Back In The Days sees them return to the Toy Tonics imprint they last graced back in 2014. There's a classic disco-house-meets-contemporary deep house feel to the groovy and attractive title track, while "Jugendstil" adds hazy jazz influences to the same successful formula. The bizarrely titled "+++" throws African vocal and drum samples into the mix, combining them with bold string riffs and unfussy house beats to excellent effect. Finally, bonus track "Humbled" sees the duo return to their filter-sporting best, with the results sounding like a fusion of Soundstream and Tom Trago.

Review: New German imprint Toy Tonics launch with panache and style, scooping up the instantly familiar Hard Ton for the hard jacking, high pitched action of the Not Again EP. According to the press release, Toy Tonics' remit is to focus on Berlin-centric artists whose music references 90s house and German electrofunk, which makes Hard Ton an obvious candidate. The title track "Not Again" is a glorious combination of fully primed drum machine funk, rich analogue bass, raved up keyboard stabs, deviating acid lines and of course Hard Ton's singularly unique holler. The ever dependable Snuff Crew are a perfect choice to remix the track, stripping down the melodic excesses and introducing their own unpredictable acid refrain and uber raved stabs to give the track a fresh look. Hard Ton's "In This Moment" throws down expansive keys and pads over rigidly framed "Set It Off" drums and it's given a looser, uplifting, almost 90s freestyle sheen by Dimitri From Paris and DJ Rocca.

Review: Berlin house head Hard Ton returns to the Toytonics label he inaugurated last year with another round of jacking 90s vocal house. "Food From Love" has all the electrofunk tendencies of his last Toytonics release, combining a raw drum machine rhythm with midnight keys and a rising arpeggio which perfectly complements the yearning Bronski Beat-esque vocal. "From Club To Club" meanwhile wears its rave influences a little more explicitly on its sleeve, with a bubbling acid line and neon house stabs popping off in the background, while the pitched down backing vocals offer a subtle contrast to its companion. "Food Of Love" is also given a rather stunningly deep rework by the legendary DJ Sprinkles, who adds his own meandering bassline and latin percussion elements to give the whole thing a welcome bit of swing, before soaring off on an improvised piano line at the end.

Review: Fresh from an inspired EP on Beats of No Nation, Jad Lee returns to regular home Toy Tonics with another rock-solid, four-track salvo. The Aussie adventurer hits the ground running with "Strings That Never Win", a rolling deep house/disco house hybrid full of attractive orchestral samples, crunchy Clavinet lines and drowsy backing vocals. He brilliantly doffs a cap to vintage Italian dream house on the rather luscious and kaleidoscopic "Accidental Audi Driver", before wrapping a bustling, slack-tuned house groove with dewy-eyed melody lines and rubbery synth-bass on the deeper "Familiar Family Photo". Best of all, though, is loved-up, synth-heavy closer "Tops Off FM Radio", which sits somewhere between lucid Balearic deep house and soft-touch nu-disco.

"Do It Get Up" is indicative of his trademark sound, delivering a strobelight-friendly fusion of chunky bottom-end, wiry synths and thickset chords. Kolombo remixes, offering up a delightfully wonky, stripped-back version that sounds like Sweet Exorcist making nu-disco, under the influence of helium. "Tipsy" throws some weighty electrofunk bass into the mix with impressive results, while the boogie sampling "Lovin" tickles and teases with its blend of jackin' beats and Tiger and Woods-ish cut-ups.

Review: Rather like a ladyboy, Aussie producer Jad Lee, packs a little extra than expected. Often seen as a nu-disco re-edit guy, Lee actually has been making big international waves with increasingly deep and quirky house productions too. "The Swazi Techno Funk Truck" is as long as its name - seven minutes of lean and shimmering mechanical acid-funk. "Be My Friend" is a jazzy voodoo throbber, while the title track, "Namibian Gold" appears as both a deep and percussive Afro-house "Gold" Version" and a woozy 303-led "Acid Version".

Review: Toy Tonics are getting their money's worth out of Kapote. Since making his debut for the label 18 months ago, the Berlin-based producer has had a hand in no less than four other EPs. There's no messing around on this latest four-track missive, as he launches himself at the dancefloor with the rubbery, punk-funk bass, fizzing percussion and jazzy disco samples of "The Nose". He heads for smoother, groovier deep house pastures on "Get Down Brother", before dipping the tempo a little on the shuffling, pie-eyed disco-house goodness of "Uhh Baby". That track also gets the remix treatment from Irish twosome Brame & Hamo, whose jazzy-but-driving interpretation makes excellent use of clattering drum machine hi-hats.

Review: Kapote is head honcho down at Toy Tonics HQ in Berlin with Manuel Kim and Bavarians Munk. He presents the label's latest offering in the form of The Body Move EP. It starts off with the funky and disco-fied jam that is the title track and then moves into "Tell Tony" which continues on in a deep and filtered fashion reminiscent of early Daft Crew releases: full of whirly synths and rough beats beneath. Finally, you can recline for the lo-slung acid jazz inflections of "L.O.V.E.". This is slow grooving dance music. In the words of the label, nothing is stressed here: just mid-tempo house with live played bass, keyboards and plenty of warm harmonies.

You Know What? - (5:54) 120 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $2.03
Review: For their latest missive, German label Toy Tonics has turned to Italian producer Andrea Pedra, previously famous in his native Tuscany as a DJ and promoter of parties in a "dirty old jazz cavern". This EP - his first for Toy Tonics - showcases his love of sleazy but fluid deep house, created using analogue equipment. There's naturally much to admire, from the revivalist Italian house bump, late night vocal snippets and jaunty organs of "You Know What?", to the driving drums, woozy synths and densely layered vocal samples of "Muff 60". Best of all, though, is opener "In My Eyes", an effective fusion of undulating acid lines, fireside chords, trippy vocal samples and boompty-influenced drums.

Review: Berlin's Toy Tonics are back with London's Lancelot, who is really on a roll at the moment having appeared on the likes of Freerange, W&O Street Tracks and Arjunadeep to name a few. "7am In The Afternoon" is a tough and dusty serving of deep house with a generous splash of 303 aid squelch. "Again And Again" is smooth and emotive deep house of the techy tip which has deserved him an upcoming release on Freerange while "Lorikeets" goes for some stomping tech house flavour more suited to energized dancefloor moments.

Levitate - (6:58) 120 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $2.03
Review: Swiss producer Mercury joins forces with vocalist Teki Latex - and his autotune kit - for this two-track salvo on the increasingly productive Toy Tonics imprint. "Tension" is warm, woozy, hypnotic deep and undulating, with Latex's notable vocals riding a wave of bumping beats, cascading chords and bumpy bass. It should keep the deep house purists happy, but has enough about it to appeal to those who like their house a touch groovier. "Levitate" is tougher, chunkier and heavier, peppering an addictive groove with manipulated hip-hop samples and intoxicating electronic tweakery. It's bold and, arguably, a much stronger prospect than the solid A-side.

Review: Metropolitan Soul Museum (or MSM) are Nick (Mock & Toof) and Filippo, who together have been running Teng Records for the last three years. This time around it is the Tesla EP for Berlin based Toy Tonics and it's quite a nice one indeed. Starting out with the tile track which is a dark journey with wonky synth leads, dark pads and a nice bit of rumble in the bassline. "A&E" goes even darker and deeper; very atmospheric with some razor sharp synth leads and those bongo drums add an extra bit of suspense and momentum. There's a remix by men of the moment Tuff City Kids aka Lauer and Gerd Janson who give the track the retro, fun loving house vibes from yesteryear like only they can. Finally "Let's Play" is a smooth and chilled out deep house affair with a Balearic touch which works a treat!

Review: Hailing from Brixton and now living in Berlin, Mona Lazette has created a buzz by lending her soulful vocals to tracks by Kele, Catz N Dogz and Munk. Now she delivers her debut single, Pressure Pressure, which is an expertly produced smooth leftfield house jam that's reminiscent of Freaks or Freeform Five. Elsewhere on the remix front Art Of Tonnes delivers some deep, thumping, bleep-house, Jad & The Ladyboy goes for hypnotic acid-drone and The Rhythm Odyssey goes for a semi-drumless squelch-out.

Review: Fledgling Gomma offshoot Toy Tonics arrive at their third release, reaching out across the Atlantic to take in an excellent EP from Mexico City duo Moon Runner. Formed of La Royale and Juan Soto, Moon Runner specialise in a raw brand of house music that relies on thick analogue bass lines, disjointed melodies and heavily funked out rhythms, which is best demonstrated on EP opener "Cultural Track One." It bears obvious comparisons with the Central American branch of Matias Aguayo's Comeme and it's little surprise that Daniel Maloso has been called on to add his mind bending production idiosyncrasies to the track.

Review: Toy Tonics' Mushroom House series has so far sparkled, delivering a series of "weirdo house" inspired EPs full of tracks that look to "ethno, Afro and psychedelic" music for inspiration. Each of the producers involved in this third installment predictably hit the mark, with Ponty Mython's trippy opener - think rolling tropical deep house with hallucinatory flourishes - expertly setting the tone. Fast-rising producer Kiwi steals the show with a low-slung fusion of dub disco and smacked out Afro-house, while the Barking Dogs join forces with Tom Trago for a seductive trip into cosmic deep house territory. Red Axes also do a terrific job turning Munk's "The Bolero Brunel" into a hazy chunk of nu-disco psychedelia.

Review: From deep beneath the bowels of Munich come Friedrich "Rhode" Trede and Michael "Brown" Braun, purveyors of slick, garage-influenced deep house. This EP for Toytonics, their third in total, begins with a slinky chunk of breezy garage goodness, "Under Your Spell". It's the sort of thing you'd expect to hear on Local Talk, but with an added contemporary sheen. "Joyride' offers more anthemic deep house/garage fusion - all screaming female vocal samples, big riffs and hip-wigglin' beats - while "Floating Figures" laces some delicious old skool pianos over a suitably deep and groovesome backing. Best of all, though, is Kyondai's remix of "Joyride", which throws some fantastic jazz drums into the mix for added percussive impact.

Review: Rhode & Brown, AKA Munich-based producers Friedrich Trede and Stephan Michael Braun, are no newcomers. They first appeared on Toy Tonics back in 2013, and have been regular contributors to the label ever since. There's naturally much to admire on this latest annual missive, from the dreamy deep house, ragged acid and UK breakbeat fusion of opener "St Hippolyte", to the Andres style deep house jazz of hazy closer "Snabsnus". There are treats in between, too, including a further acid exploration ("The A"), and the sun-kissed positivity of the pleasingly loose and languid "Leeched Love Boils".
