From it's roots as a cult dance music label and club night in East London to it's current homes in Brooklyn, New York, and at the UK's legendary Rak Studios, Tummy Touch Records has been defying convention, resisting categorisation and championing the unique musical vision of label founder Tim “Love” Lee. Since the first release back in 1994, if it's doped up, blissed out or living on the margins of the acceptable, it's found a loving home at the label. Having launched the careers of artists like Groove Armada, Tom Vek and Phenomenal Handclap Band, Tummy Touch now has, according to the BBC, “an influence far in excess of it’s tiny size”.
Sit back and let Tummy Touch’s brand of Bohemian disco rock, sci-fi electro soul, unruly latin mash ups and oddball urban exotica bring aural pleasures to the soundtrack of your musical world.

My fave man of the bongo, Patrick Dawes, has just released his new solo album, a mere 12 years since the last one. I was honored to be asked to contribute some sonic oddness here and there to this track. Have it for free ! Then go buy the album. YES !!

On the week of Aug 28th 1962, exactly 50 years ago, the BBC started regular stereo FM radio broadcasts. To celebrate this sonic milestone Tim “love” Lee has teamed up with fellow aural adventurers Tara Busch, Jack Dangers and Si Begg to bring you “Test Signals” – four sonic sketches of imagined test procedures and one glorious radiophonic collaboration between London, NYC, San Francisco and Los Angeles. A true testament to the golden age of experimental broadcasting.
The 7″ vinyl EP is strictly limited to 150 copies and comes with a full colour sleeve and a digital download of the “Against Remixes” album by Tim Love Lee featuring mixes by Jack Dangers, Sonic Boom, Depth Charge, Kirk Degiorgio and others.

I’m really excited to be working with this lot – I stalked them for years. Nothing else quite like it: jazz / classical / funk ? Who knows. We charted it in the billboard Top 20 this week though so you should check it out…
New Phenomenal Handclap Band album released this week !

I like to think of this as Abba’s long lost “Conny Plank” sessions. So good ! I think you’ll like it too.
