Ascending Souls

by Frau Holle

Ascending Souls

In our feature release for Netlabel Day 2017, Frau Holle presents his debut at Toucan Music with ten inspiring instrumental electronica tracks combining the sounds of 21st Century chilled trance and house music with classic analog synthesizer music from the 1970s and 1980s.

Ascending Souls introduces Holle's sound, featuring bleepy arpeggios, haunting pads and warm, uplifting chords. The tempo drops for the two part Quasar, a chilled yet atmospheric piece retaining the uplifting melodies of Holle's signature sound. Increasing the pace, Big Rip and Propaganda Machine introduce stuttering trance gates and house rhythms, the latter starting with a darker...

Best Bytes Volume 4

Our fourth collection of Best Bytes features 19 more choice cuts from the last decade of our back catalogue, once again showcasing a range of electronic and dance music genres from the funky house of Phish Funk and the deep minimal dancefloor grooves of Blastculture to the chilled remixes of Psychadelik Pedestrian. Toucan Music's trademark uplifting house music sound is well represented, with future house flavour courtesy of Notch, melodic trance from Mark Burt, and upfront progressive from Aerologic. As with all Best Bytes compilations, the older tracks have been remastered for this album.

Fifteen

by Psychadelik Pedestrian

Fifteen

Psychadelik Pedestrian returns with this 10 track album, following up his Nocturnia and Transient LPs. Deliberately taking a step back from the intense sound of Nocturnia, this time Psychadelik Pedestrian adopts a more relaxing, chilled vibe, reminiscent of tracks such as Coral Reef and Night Beach. Despite this, the album kicks off in a suitably moody style with the brooding, orchestral strings of Into The Ether, gradually building into a spacious, piano driven piece with subtle dubstep influences - a bridge between the darker moments of Nocturnia and the lighter shades present on the remainder of this album. This is followed by Catching Rays, a pure, chilled hypnotic ...

Best Bytes Volume 3

Our third collection of Best Bytes features another 19 highlights from our back catalogue dating from 2004 to right up to 2015. As usual the album showcases the wide range of electronic and dance genres released on our netlabel, from the laid back grooves of Psychadelik Pedestrian's Liquid Nitrogen to the frenetic, trance influenced UK hardcore of Dreamworld's Feel The Power. In between, the album features plenty of Toucan's signature melodic house sound, represented with Beat Doctor's Organic and The Piano Tune, Marc Burt's irritatingly catchy Human Intelligence and the deep house grooves of Amazonia, and the upfront progressive house of Aerologic. ...

Aerologic

by Aerologic

Aerologic

Aerologic combines upfront contemporary EDM and progressive house with European trance influences. This first album features 11 of Aerologic's most popular tracks over the last three years, and features strong melodies, sizzling synthesizer stabs, warm chords and pumping beats. Aerologic burst onto the scene in 2011 with Ricochet. Since then, his uplifting progressive house sound has gone from strength to strength, bringing to Toucan Music anthemic original tracks such as Electronaut and Digital Nation as well as a variety of remixes for artists including JMD, Redmann and Marc Burt. Combining influences from classic trance with upfront pumping house, there are pl...

Nocturnia

by Psychadelik Pedestrian

Nocturnia

Psychadelik Pedestrian follows his 2011 LP Transient with this 11 track album which includes 9 brand new originals and a new remix of Cosmos. Blending Psychadelik Pedestrian's trademark mix of instrumental piano, strings, breakbeats, old school ambient jungle and strings with contemporary dubstep and chillout grooves, the album features two vocal tracks alongside the more traditional instrumentals and builds elements from Psychadelik Pedestrian's earlier tracks with the electronic synthesized sound of Transient. Catch My Fall combines the powerful vocals of Sassygal with mellow backing harmonies by SackJo22 and ventures into an uplifting pop dance sound similar...

Remix and...

by JMD

Remix and...

JMD presents 18 of his favourite remixes from 2004 to 2012 in this collection. After introducing his hard yet melodic trance sound in 2003, JMD's first remixes were in 2004 and featured a hands-in-the-air epic trance feel with enormous breakdowns influenced by UK hard trance producers at the time. One of JMD's most successful early remixes, his reworking of House Trancefusion by DJ Rise (later Risey) in 2004, narrowly missed being the most downloaded Toucan Music track between 2004 and 2007 while reaching our top ten chart four successive years. By 2005, JMD started to promote a more underground sound while retaining his trademark sizzling synth arpeggios, and ...

Transient

by Psychadelik Pedestrian

Transient

Psychadelik Pedestrian's second album features a blend of brand new tracks and some of the best Psychadelik Pedestrian tracks since his self-titled first album in 2008. The album starts with the slightly eerie pads of Spectre, a new downtempo instrumental track, before raising the tempo with Upside Down, Psychadelik Pedestrian's summer 2011 track featured on the CCMixter site and incorporating a stunning vocal from Snowflake. The next track, a dubstep remix of Tears In My Heart, tones down the tempo but adds epic synth pads and wobbling basslines. A newly remastered version of Twist Turn Slide follows, pumping it up a notch; originally released back in 2005, this ...
