TOYS aka Take Off Your Shoes combine their latest release from head honcho ASA808 with a charitable event in their Soli Night party at Berlin’s about:blank, where all proceeds will go to PRO ASYL, Germany’s largest pro immigration advocacy organization. Along the years, the TOYS collective have brought a hefty slew of renowned artists to the stage, like Avalon Emerson, Brame & Hamo, Breach, Christian Löffler, Dairmount, Dauwd, Ejeca, Frits Wentink, Glimpse, Hade, Homework, Huxley, Kidnap kid, Locked Groove, Marquis Hawkes, Shenoda, Throwing Snow, Trikk, Urulu, Tom Demac, xxxy and Youandewan.
On release number four, entitled “Woke/Love Trumps Fear”, ASA808 delivers two melodic house tunes, taken from the artist’s seven track release that will be out in fall. “Woke” drips with brooding string arrangements and analogue bass synths over the top of a tense percussive grid.
We’re giving away 2×2 guest list spots for the night in question. To get involved, get into the TOYS spirit and send an email to win @ localsuicide . com filling in the dots with your best and funniest thing that comes to mind:”Take Off Your Shoes and..”.
