Tongue & Groove began as a project between two old friends, Jake Ainley and Ric Featherstone both deeply passionate electronic music lovers and involved in the scene for many years. Having met at many Flying Rhino and T.I.P parties in the 1990’s when the scene was exploding on a global level and they realised that they both shared a deep love of the psychedelic scene and also a passion for music production and DJ’ing. After putting on parties and Djng together for over a decade they decided to get in the studio and create the twisted sonic delights that had been turning them on and make some proper party music.
In 2008 Tongue & Groove was born with a mission to create music that has the best combination of Progressive, Techno and Psychedelic Trance. With their musical roots immersed in the sounds of the beginnings of Goa Trance, they wanted to produce a new sound that both captures the best of that epic era with a new and exciting twist that could be best described as psychedelic techno. A sound that they have pioneered and is now spreading like wildfire around the world.
They have released E.P’s and tracks on various labels such as Flow Records, Liquid Records, Broken Records and Shifty Disco. In 2015 they are releasing on Iboga Records, Echoes Records, Flying Rhino and Nano Records. With support coming from the likes of Nick Warren, James Monro, Perfect Stranger, Tristan, Lucas, Dick Trevor and DJ Osho expect some strong releases this year including Tongue and Groove remixes Of Tristan/Outsiders, Ben Coda, Green Nuns of The Revolution and The Overlords amongst others.
Tongue and Groove have performed at many of the major festivals in UK including Glastonbury, Glade, Noisily, Secret Garden Party, Boomtown and also around the world in a number of different countries. They also have played alongside such legends and greats as Avalon, Hedflux, James Monro, Dick Trevor, Billy Nasty, Neelix, Tim Healey, Monk3ylogic, Lucas and Shane Gobi.
Now signed to Nano Records and joining the Nano Booking Agency expect to see these boys at many parties and festivals around the world.
