The Toy Tonics label boss has a long history of producing dance music, being a DJ and one of the leading figures in the Berlin dance scene. Before starting Toy Tonics he produced singles and albums for people like Peaches, James Murphy & Nancy Whang (of LCD Soundsystem), Bobby Conn, Graffiti legend The Rammellzee, WhoMadeWho and many others.
To create a new form of label universe – for the upcoming forms of house and disco (not techno, trance or EDM that’s the opposite vibe) – he started Toy Tonics with 2 friends. With Toy Tonics Kapote created a label family with all kind of musicians, keyboarders and drummers who also are DJs and record collectors, that stand for a very strong own funky musical vibe. As a DJ, he normally plays only at Toy Tonics Jams – but can be requested for special solo gigs too.
Kapote aka Mathias Modica, who some might also know from his former label Gomma records, where he produced under the name of Munk, plays a wild mix of funk orientated music. From rare disco edits and Italian disco to modern quality house and futuristic broken beat and funky new wave. And of course, he plays a lot of Toy Tonics records. It’s always euphoria.
