Top-shelf beats from the Italian producer.
If you’re not already following Berlin and Munich-based label Toy Tonics, then it’s time to get involved with their latest release from Kian T. Having dropped his label debut last year, the Tuscan producer is back with his Room 69 EP. It’s a sample-heavy delight, featuring all the elements we expect, including a heavy presence from his collection of vintage synths, and an undeniable feel for the groove of a dancefloor that belies his rural lifestyle.
The EP’s titular track is an impressive mission statement, sizzling with rich, analogue sounds, and stomping drums. The song is airy in all the right places, with a heavily filtered voice singing softly over the top and a mesmerising blend of synths, while the tenacious beat demands a whole lot of movement.
