TOYTOY is a fun musical bunch of four virtuoso instrumentalists. Channeling influences from Frank Zappa and Weather Report to J Dilla and Terrace Martin, they also inhale the inspiring smoke of the hip new jazz scene around the globe.
Propelled by the untamed energy of their live shows, the new studio record features a one-of-a-kind vibe with ever-surprising guests. Bass fever, a mega percussion sound palette, cheeky drums and a cornucopia of mesmerizing guitar sounds form their genre-bending creations. Based on the model of American music collectives like Soulquarians/The Roots, TOYTOY see themselves as a creative catalyst and possibility generator for the fusion of Jazz and Urban Music styles like Soul and Rap. That fusion is showcased on their new album PLAYDATE. Their eclectic crew of guests with the likes of Flo Mega, Maria João, Salomea, ESO.ES, Leroy Menace and more underscore the broad spectrum of the TOYTOY universe.
