Tongue & Groove are a London based DJ duo that have hit the Hard Dance industry with what can only be described as something a bit different. Their style of productions is like no other, incorporating cheeky and imaginative vocals from their House influences and beyond, over hard, groovy beats that are guaranteed to get your feet moving.
2010 was a massive year for the duo. Having started the year being snapped up by Rodi Style’s record label, Kung Fu Wax and success with Toolbox and Fireball, T&G have gone from strength to strength. With countless top 10 hits on trackitdown.net and a featured track on Kutski’s Radio 1 show for ‘Enough’s Enough’, endorsements have come in from artists including: Paul Glazby, Technikal, Amber D, Ben Stevens, Rodi Style, Nik Denton, Lucy Fur, Costa Pantazis and many more. Having lined-up with the likes of the Tidy Boys, Sam & Deano, Rodi Style, DJ Audy, Lisa-Pin-Up to name a few, T&G have proved their worth alongside some industry greats, providing high octane sets that keep you firmly rooted to the dance floor. Their flair and passion behind the decks combined with a true skill for club music creates an atmosphere that must be experienced
Moving into 2011 and it was onwards and upwards for the duo! Having played big club nights at Ministry Of Sound and Storm at the Emporium, they were certainly moving in one direction. With massive releases already that year including their collaboration with Rodi Style – Shake Sh*t Up, which was not only selected for Technikal’s album Techtonik, but also named as his favourite track in his HDA interview and also hailed as an Insomniacz anthem. Later that year saw the massive release of ‘Crush’, played on Radio1 and held at No2 in the TID charts only by their label collaboration track KFC – FTW, which was also featured on the Tidy Weekender Reunion Album.
