London based duo Tough Love have rapidly risen through the ranks of the house scene over the last three years
Their distinct productions together with energetic and bass-heavy DJ sets have created a cult following of hardcore fans across the UK and beyond. Their sound is instantly recognisable in their production and can be described as bass-infused house with plenty of 90s R&B and garage.
The duo have released on a series of established international labels, including Toolroom, Kenny Dope’s Dope Wax, and their own imprint Get Twisted Records - which is fast becoming one of the most talked about underground labels in the house scene
2014 was a stand out year for Tough Love, who amid touring heavily around the UK with appearances at festivals including We Are FSTVL and Outbreak Festival as well as gigs in Ibiza, host their own weekly show on KISS FM every Thursday from Midnight.
Alex and Stef had close to a dozen releases throughout the year. 2014 saw them release their original production "Dreams" on Mark Knight's Toolroom Records, collaborate with Amine Edge and Dance for their own label imprint Get Twisted as well as official remixes for Clean Bandit, Meghan Tranior, Le Youth, and Shift K3y.
They also won 'Best Single' in The Bass Music Awards & closed the year signing to the reputable Jamaican born and London based Island Records. Earlier this year they released the dancefloor smash "So Freakin Tight" which is destined to become ubiquitous this summer.
