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.
