Join us live on Monday 23rd and Tuesday 24th October to celebrate 20 years of free music from Toucan and our predecessor Frantik Music! Our website was first launched on 24th October 1997 and we’re broadcasting a live 4 hour DJ mix in 2 parts, starting on Monday… join at YouTube:
Our annual end of year mix for 2016 is now available! With the mellow, minimalistic grooves of Blastculture, brooding beats and bass of Psychadelik Pedestrian, disco funk of Phish Funk and progressive trance of Marc Burt, the 86 minute mix showcases some of our favourite Toucan tracks of the year. Listen and download now from our DJ mix archive.
2015 has been quite a year at Toucan Music. In March we celebrated 10 years of our free music netlabel by counting down our most popular downloads and releasing new mixes of our first release. In July we participated in the first ever Netlabel Day with some exclusive tracks which were later made available as part of our regular EP releases, and on top of all this we also released the fourth Psychadelik Pedestrian LP, Fifteen, and the third in our Best Bytes series of compilation albums. For this year’s end of year mix, we present 82 continuous minutes of music seamlessly blended to take you on a journey back through 2015, with a mixture of house and trance music from Blastculture, Diamond Cuts, Notch, Aerologic and more. Find out the tracklist and download the mix on our mix page.
Well, yet another new year is nearly upon us and if you’re fed up of the Christmas music and are looking for something a little different to feast your ears on then we have a treat in store! Our annual end of year mix has been prepared, featuring 75 minutes of the best Toucan tunes from 2014 blended together in a seamless DJ set. Join us over at VKRS Netradio tomorrow evening – 30th December – at 19:00 GMT for the first broadcast, and don’t forget to grab the free download of the entire DJ mix which will be available from New Year’s Eve from the End Of Year Mixes menu. If you’re in a retro mood, all our previous mixes going back to 2005 are also free to download too.
The Toucan Music end of year mix is back after a two year break, and this time around we’ve got a special extended version to cover the extra years we missed! This year’s continuous 88 minute mix covers some of our favourite tracks from 2011 through to 2013, and will be broadcast exclusively on VKRS Net-radio this afternoon (New Year’s Eve) here at http://vkrs.co/
The mix is also now available for download in our year mix section, where you can also check out the tracklist.
