Rhode & Brown – Nine To Shine [TOYT 101]
Format: 12" Vinyl
Label: Toy Tonics
Cat: TOYT 101
Rhode & Brown are back on their home label Toy Tonics where they have been almost from day one and released several EPs. The last one: “Mary’s Tool” in 2017.
This new record contains their first vocal feature ever. A brilliant house tune with vocals by german soul singer Adriano Prestel. On the A-Side they show their love for classic NY house vibes. Sax and pianos all over! All tracks basically made on the MPC and their Juno 106. On the flip you’ll find a full-on disco banger, backed with a beautiful understated sample house tune!
Since the boys cutted short their day jobs they finally started spending more time in the studio and are more creative than ever. In fact it's not long ago that they also released an EP on Swedish finest Honey Butter Records and their own label Slam City Jams.
The dudes have strong ties to Toy Tonics! Not only because one of them (Friedrich) had been working at the the label’s office for a certain time, but also because they are regular main acts on the now currently happening TOY TONICS JAMS around Europe. Where, along with Kapote, COEO and other TT artists they show their wide range of DJ skills and knowledge of dance music culture. Not being limited to house music, but going from early 70s funk and 80s underground wave stuff to the finest house sound from the 90s till now. The guys from Germany have a thing for collecting records from all around the world and make nice edits, too ).
These boys are on fire and it looks like this new EP is only the start of a new wave of Rhode & Brown
