South Africa’s Toochi releases his ‘Drop the Line’ EP



With releases on Roush Label and CR2 dropping in the last couple of months, South Africa’s Toochi continues to impress with a new ‘Drop the Line’ EP on his own Gaplife imprint.

Toochi is a brand new production project started in 2018 by Riccardo Amatucci. Previously one half of South African electronic duo ‘POPARTLIVE’, Riccardo performed alongside some of the world’s top acts at South Africa’s biggest events. With the start of his solo career as Toochi, Riccardo goes back to his roots and brings dancefloor-ready house music imbued with creative rhythms and highly emotive melodies.

‘Drop A Line EP’ comes on his own Gaplife, a label he co-founded alongside Chasing Space. Based out of Johannesburg’s, Gaplife is the first South African label to champion this techy, club-ready style of house music, and will release music from both founding artists alongside music from up-and-coming local talent.

Our premiere ‘Like Never Before’ treads a rawer path, with crunching drums and evocative vocal flourishes giving it a distinctly old-school vibe.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
