Tongue & Groove is on a roll, with three consecutive top ten hits and being booked worldwide to perform at major international festivals they are now rocking dance floors on a global level!
Jake Ainley and Ric Featherstone are both deeply passionate electronic music lovers, involved in the scene for many years. They met at many Flying Rhino and T.I.P parties in the 1990’s when the scene was exploding and they forged a deep friendship over a mutual love of the psychedelic scene and 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 their own twisted sonic delights influenced by the music that had been turning them on for all those years.
In 2006 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 “psy-techno”. A sound that they have pioneered and is now spreading like wildfire around the world.
Now signed to Nano Records they have released E.P’s and tracks with Nano records and on other labels such as Echoes Records, Iboga Records, Flow Records, Liquid Records, Broken Records and Shifty Disco. With support coming from the likes of Paul Oakenfold, John 00 Flemming, Nick Warren, James Monro, Perfect Stranger, Tristan, Lucas, Dick Trevor and Ace Ventura and many many more.
Tongue and Groove have and are performing live at many festivals/parties around the world (Ozora/Earthcore/Symbiosis) and festivals in UK (Glastonbury, Glade, Noisily, Secret Garden Party, Boomtown) and played alongside such legends and greats as Tristan, Avalon, James Monro, Dick Trevor, Billy Nasty, Neelix, Tim Healey, Hedflux, Lucas and Shane Gobi.
They are currently working on their debut album set for release on Nano Records as soon as can be!
