The next release to come from the Toy Tonics crew takes one more step into a futuristic sound that connects Broken Beat, House & Neo Soul. Da Real EP is a production between Martinique born, France based dancer and music producer Fényan and Kosmo Kint, a soul singer raised in New York who now bases himself in Berlin as part of the Toy Tonics family.
Fényan & Kosmo Kint met shortly after Kosmo Kint’s first release on Toy Tonics, the magical ‘Get Lost EP’ with french producer Mangabey, 3 magical and unique pieces of music inspired by the UK Jazz sound and break-beat which turned heads.
Fényan‘s rhythms are special, the groove is unique making you dance differently – it could be down to his dancing background, when he’s not producing he travels around the world teaching dance with his own dance company and regularly judges at dance battles worldwide. Besides dancing, he’s been producing beats since the age of 19 on his MPC, influenced by the great names of deep jazz and fusion, but also inspired by the music from his home country of Martinqiue: Zouk, Biguine, Bélè, which you can feel through the programming of his beats.
Kosmo Kint has lived in Berlin for three years. He came from NYC where he sang in Soul bands, hanging out with musicians and also writing music for other artists. He’s one of the many artists that have made the move from the Big Apple to Berlin recently. He joined the Toy Tonics crew almost 2 years ago to work on new styles between House, Soul, Disco and R&B.
In Da Real EP the pair create a sensual and delicious selection of 3 original works, the EP also includes 2 remixes from Jerome Syndenham (remix + instrumental version). Kosmo’s light and airy vocals paired together with the skipping grooves and beats from Fényan complete this tasty EP, perfectly aligned for the forthcoming summer season.Buy on Bandcamp
