The GOMMA label is a music (and graphic) collective. Based in Munich and led by Jonas Imbery (aka TELONIUS) and Mathias Modica (aka MUNK) . Apart from the two guys the Gommagang consists of other musicians, djs, bands, graphic designers and illustrators from different countries.
Gomma is part of this new, little scene of labels who are crossing between club music, art and fashion. It’s a network of young heads working on similar ideas. Releasing not only new music, but also creating fashion items, starting graphic trends and creating fresh things in popculture.
Gomma has achieved worldwide reputation for creating a new own musical language–a musical style that mixes electronic production and rock instrumentation. Combining 70ies DISCO and psychadelic sounds with 90ies Techno, Electronica and Pop.
Apart from TELONIUS & MUNK the main Gomma artists are WHOMADEWHO from Kopenhagen, RODION from Rome, BOX CODAX (Nick McCarthy from FRANZ FERDINAND solo project) London, GOLDEN BUG / Paris, DISKOKAINE / Vienna and SMALPAZE.
Apart of their music GOMMA is also known for their art activities and alternative fashion . GOMMA issues small T-SHIRT editions sold by selected shops around the world. The AMORE poster magazine is published by Gomma on an irregular basis. Also, MondoGomma Pictureshows have been curated by Gomma in Stockholm, Berlin, Barcelona, Los Angeles, and Tokio, little exhibitions that featured works by Gomma releated artists. Michael Sailsdorfer, Micha Hollenbach from P.A.M., The Rammellzee, Daniel Josefsohn and Mirko Borsche have been contributing works.
