Gumbo (reissue)
Gumbo (reissue) (limited 12")
Cat: TOKO 6. Rel: 29 Jul 20
Deep House
  1. Gumbo (9:52)
  2. Custard Gannet (6:03)
  3. Gumbo (Blooty mix) (6:01)
Review: Here's a welcome surprise: a reissue of one of the most revered records in the back catalogue of sadly departed Sheffield deep house imprint Toko. This 1997 gem is actually an all-star affair, with Klarky Cat (a reference to legendary satirical show Brass Eye) being a collaboration between Chris Duckenfield, Toko bosses Alec Greenhough and Paul Ingall (better known as Attaboy) and influential, overlooked Manchester producer Si Brad. In. its original form, "Gumbo" mixes the wavy, loved-up dreaminess of classic deep house with the organ sounds of U.S garage and the swinging, occasionally glitchy drums of early UK tech-house. It comes backed with a darker, chunkier and more foreboding rework (the mesmerising "Blooty Mix"), and the bright, acid-flecked sunrise giddiness of rather good bonus track "Custard Gannet".

Falling Down
Cat: TOKO 2101. Rel: 02 Aug 21
Balearic/Downtempo
  1. Falling Down (Brass Apes mix) (8:21)
  2. Falling Down (Psychemagik remix) (10:56)
Review: It has been 20 years since the last release on Toko, which means it will be unfamiliar to many of today's collectors. This comeback EP is set to change all that with original 'in house' producer Si Brad serving up some superbly sensuous go slow sounds. His leggy beats, Balearic compositions and late night star gazing synths are topped doff in fine style by Azeem. His buttery smooth vocals make this a fantastic opener. Deep diggers and edit maestros Psychemagik layer in some silky cosmic synth and a rubbery rolling rhythm that makes for perfect meditative material.

Avenue 6 (Is This The Real Life)
Cat: TOKO 2102. Rel: 19 Nov 21
Deep House
  1. Avenue 6(Is This The Real Life?)
  2. Avenue 6 (Real Crooked mix)
  3. Avenue 6 (Crooked Girl Crooked Boy mix)
Review: Si Brad was the original in-house producer for the Toko label. Dormant for 20 years, it is now back with a brace of brilliant new releases that immediately put it right back at the top. 'Avenue 6(Is This The Real Life?)' is pure blissed out sunset house music. The drawn out baseline, the gently bouncing drums and the airy vocal from Azeem all take you to a perfect party by the sea. The Real Crooked mix is a low slung and playful yet menacing dub. The Croocked one then steps up once more for a second and final mix that is sparse and eerie with subtle FX and speaker tweaking details.
