Tim "Love" Lee
Tim "Love" Lee, the man behind U.K. based label Tummy Touch Records -- former home to Groove Armada -- is known as a beat manipulator extraordinaire. Taking Trip-Hop, House and Big Beat to extremes, Lee's individual style scoffs at categorization. Vaguely Balearic in form, these beat-ridden grooves come scantily clad in decorative samples celebrating sex, drugs and other hedonistic behaviors appropriate for sun-drenched summers on the isle of Ibiza. An orgy of animalistic effects wrestle with magnetic beats that crave dancefloors packed with uninhibited bodies hungering for innovative electronic sounds. A bag full of aurally erotic DJ tricks consisting of funky melodic riffs, surprisingly insane rhythms, and off-color vocal snippets that arouse you in the kinkiest of ways -- what's not to love?
