DISK welcomes Toxe
We're excited to have Toxe join DISK Agency. The Swedish producer is a central figure within Staycore – a new ground-breaking label from Stockholm. She crafts modern bass music integrating post-internet club with sounds from around the globe and is currently working on both solo releases and collaborations. Toxe released her debut Muscle Memory EP on Staycore in October 2015 and is set to perform this summer at Sónar Festival in Barcelona and Sweden's Norbergfestival.
