Once a month Monarch Berlin invites a producer, artist or DJ to play music he/she would usually not play in a club: music that informs the roots of their styles, obscure songs they love, guilty pleasures, analogue or digital, danceable or not.
Gothenburg artist Toxe crafts tracks sounding like the journey through a stone-cold cave as portrayed in the video for her track Determina. It’s scary and seductive at the same time. The Swedish artist has so far released just one EP on Staycore and a collection of mixes but their quality make you beg for more and there’s certainly more to come from Toxe in the following months.
Staycore is all about relationships – Toxe sees eye to eye with her friends including KABLAM, mobilegirl and Mechatok. Present in the scene only for a few months, she has already been named a producer to watch by Noisey, FADER and Dazed. Toxe’s signature sound hits you with an earthquake of drums and synths rumbling like marching troops bringing her close to club provocateurs like Kamixlo and TOTAL FREEDOM.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/283946721″ params=”color=ff5500″ width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
Toxe released her debut Muscle Memory EP on Staycore in October 2015. Her five tracks clash boulder-heavy rhythms against intricate details painting a picture very human andemotional. Rave reviews and the buzz around Toxe make her one of the most promising new producers in the avant-garde club scene.
