Double vinyl LP pressing. Toy Tonics presents Gomma Dancefloor Gems Vol. 1. It's all about Y2K, punkfunk and indie disco. Gomma was one of the key labels of the Y2K indie dance wave along with labels like James Murphy's DFA and Trevor Jackson's OUTPUT Records. And as the '90s revival that dominated the last years in fashion and electronic music reached it's peak, the Toy Tonics gang thought it's a good moment to re-mind some of these early 2000s tracks that connected a more raw, indie disco and punky funk vibe. Not just music people like James Murphy, who did music with Gomma before starting his own LCD Soundsystem or bands like Chromeo, New Young Pony Club, or Soulwax who started later with a similar vibe, but also art, graphic and fashion people took inspiration from the Gomma world. When new labels popped up copying the Gomma attitude and styles (till these days), Gomma's head honcho and main inventor Mathias Modica stopped the whole thing, changed the name and started something new: Toy Tonics records. Mathias Modica aka Munk aka Kapote himself now is busy with Toy Tonics, which basically is bigger than Gomma ever was: Spreading a very own sound of organic house and disco funk. With party happenings all over Europe every weekend and a very young audience. Featuring: Moullinex & Peaches, Munk, Whomadewho, Golden Bug, Headman, Baldelli, Trans Mania, Leroy Hanghofer, Severino Horse Meat Disco, and Rodion.
