Fényan x Kosmo Kint - Da Real EP (Toy Tonics)
Format: 12" Vinyl EP
Cat No: TOYT116
This next Toy Tonics EP takes one more step into a futuristic sound that connects Broken Beat, House & Neo Soul. The EP was produced by Fényan - the France based dancer and producer (originally from Martinique) who hooked up with Kosmo Kint - the Soul singer raised in New York and part of The Toy Tonics crew in Berlin for the past year.
Fenyan & Kosmo Kint met shortly after Kosmo Kint’s first release on Toy Tonics (the "Get lost“ EP with French producer Mangabey). Together they created three magic sparkling pieces of music. A unique sound inspired by the UK Jazz sound and the broken beat scene - a further step in the evolution of uptempo Neo Soul dance music.
Fényan’s rhythms are special. The groove is unique. This music makes you dance differently. No wonder, as Fenyan (his real name is Kwame) is a professional dancer.
He travels around the world teaching dancing with his own dance company and is a judge on international dance battles. 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 origin Martinqiue: Zouk, Biguine, Bélè… you can feel this in the programming of his beats.
Kosmo Kint has lived in Berlin for the past three years. He came from NYC where he was singing in Soul bands, hanging out with musicians and also writing songs for other artists. He is one of the many artists that moved from the big apple to Berlin recently. He joined the Toy Tonics crew almost 2 years ago to work on new styles between House and Soul, Disco and R&B. In fact there is a big movement of top international musicians coming to the German capital. Its not just DJs in Berlin but a huge community of ex-pat musicians working on all kind of styles. Mixing the European electronic dancefloor music with all kinds of vibes and influences. And many of these musicians are finding a new home at Toy Tonics Records.
