Joe Claussell joined the MUSHROOM HOUSE series! The New York City DJ and music originator made one of his rare remixesf for the Toy Tonics series. Claussell is a pioneer. Blending African and Brazilian rhythms with Disco and House since the early 1990ies. Inspiring the music world with his labels Spiritual Life Music and Ibadan records and with his legendary Body & Soul parties that he run for 6 years with Francois K and Danny Krivit in NYC. For Toy Tonics he remixed an obscure afro funk song by German Afro - Kraut Band Karl Hector & The Malcouns and Nicolas Tounga, singer from Burkina Faso. The original song was released on a limited 7 on Now Again records/ L.A. in 2008. Sold out for a long time. Claussells remix is an amazing 11 minutes afrotechno jam. A great journey though styles. Also on this EP: Night Masquerade by Vito & Druzzi. Again: NYC guys. You might know the boys also for being part of The Rapture/ DFA. Since a few years they produce electronic music under the name of Vito & Druzzi. Part of New Yorks Throne of Blood crew. Some might remember their vocal contribution for Joakims Bring Your Love. On their track for Toy Tonics they go tribal. Somewhere between Steve Reich inspired Gamelan pattern, smooth flowing over a 4/4 beat top by a nasty, 1970ies Funk synth solo that turns the whole track into a new direction. Third track is by Kapote, man behind Toy Tonics and owner of many great records with hot samples. His Besamo Fly is a 110 Bpm slow house jam - makes you think about Mexican beaches or Paris Filter House nights of the 1990ies.
