“The crazy funky side of Germany’s underground disco.”

Teutonik Disaster was initially released on Munk’s defunkt Gomma label, on which he also put out music with LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy and Nancy Whang, alongside many others.

The new 2019 edition features eight new extended disco edits by Toy Tonics’ Kapote, most of which are taken from the original 18-track compilation and accompanying 12”s.

It follows volume six of Toy Tonics’ Top Tracks EP series, which features music by Harry Wolfman and Black Loops ft. Felipe Gordon.

The compilation will be released on 15th March. Check out the tracklist and stream Kapote’s rework of ‘Frauenkörper’ by Die Chefs below.
