René: “We've heard lots music in our careers, so it's difficult to surprise us -we're very critical A&R's haha! We want to be blown away by something original, and then share this with the rest the world. We want to surprise people, and Tonco Tone will be just the place for that.”
“It's a great starting shot”, says Gaston. “Or even a big bang”, adds René. “We ten also start our DJ sets like this, so everyone knows we're there haha! The title also represents the music we want to release on the label. We expect some megablasts coming our way, bring it on!”
