Toy Tonics going New Wave Disco with Baby’s Berserk’s self-titled debut album (to be released on 29 September).

There are many shades of funk in dance music. Berlin’s Toy Tonics label brings up artists that reflect
many of these different aspects in dance music. Now the label comes up with a band! A band that is
inspired by 1980ies New Wave as well as the Y2K Indie dance scene. Two guys and 2 girls from
Amsterdam and Montreal called Baby’s Berserk.
Baby’s Berserk is about taking the freedom to be who you want to be, about being comfortable.
Having played in all-girl punk bands since the age of 14, the bands singer Lieselot is an expert on
female empowerment. “Dress like a girl and act like a boy,” is a catchphrase she lives up to every day
and it clearly is a message that resonates with the band’s wild fans.
In the great tradition of Roxy Music, Throbbing Gristle and Malcolm McLaren, Baby’s Berserk is not
just about the edgy music, but also about a very strong own visual style. They readily blend their
sounds with underground fashion. What you see is what you get and seeing Baby’s Berserk is feeling
right at home. Lieselot is a visionary when it comes to stage presence. Have you always wanted to

see an electronic band with a punk attitude perform wearing a mix of haute couture and Flintstone-
style rags? Look no further, it’s Baby’s Berserk.

Following on the critically acclaimed singles ‘What I Mean’ (2020) and ‘Toxic Kisses’ (2022), Baby
Berserk’s highly anticipated self-titled full-length is now finally about to see the light on Berlin’s Toy
Tonics records. Sonically designed for gritty rock venues as well as up-to-date edgy dance clubs,
Mano’s lush compositions smoothly intertwine with the highly associative lyrics written by Puggy and
Lieselot. Poets and literary addicts may think they’ve just discovered the rock & roll equivalents of
Sylvia Plath, Kurt Vonnegut and Allen Ginsberg. To tell you the truth: their wild guess is pretty
accurate as the works by these greats lie scattered around the Baby’s Berserk studio for inspiration.
The band was born in a laboratory back in 2019. Tired of being in bands with unruly and unpredictable
humans, Mano Hollestelle set out to create a group of high precision robots to create the post-punk
sound he had in mind. His outdated technology of floppy disks and cassette tapes worked well to
program the androids, until one day a 90s rave mixtape was mistakenly entered into his computer.
House music is a feeling and the punk bots instantly got hooked on it upon hearing it for the first time.
They could never be reset to factory settings again. Mano worked tirelessly with his androids, currently
known by their humanoid names of Lieselot Elzinga, Puggy Beales and Eva Wijnbergen, to fulfil his
evil plan to make the rockers dance and the dancers rock. Baby’s Berserk is the fiendish extension of
this plot. Beware, the band’s bass driven grooves and computerized beats have been known to cast a
spell upon all within earshot.
So what do the songs on ‘Baby’s Berserk’ tell you? That it’s totally fine to have lots of fun in life! To
have a boyfriend as an accessory (‘Accessories’), to get inspired by Sponge Bob (‘Dancing with the
Fish’) and to blend your spirits with mixers whenever the hell you feel like it (‘Rum ‘n’ Kola’).
Baby’s Berserk member Puggy Beales on ‘Limousine’: “Decant the wine from my tip jar to
yours. Soon we’ll be on easy street, chauffeured home from the rat race each evening. Is it
everything you’d hoped it would be?”
Check not only the debut album but also the forthcoming Remix EP with remixes by Each Other,
Niklas Wandt, Sam Ruffillo, Kris Baha and Nicolini.
