From headlining festivals and to massive shows in Ibiza to their weekly Kiss FM radio show, Tough Love’s 5th Anniversary sees them at the top of their game, constantly evolving and firing out new music from their Get Twisted label.
Stef & Alex’s ’common love for what was more than just a sound but a way of living, a lifestyle, bringing people together for a good time’ initially brought them together. Bringing uniqueness, energy and fun to every performance Tough Love developed a loyal following from the offset. Early releases such as "Cold Blood" & "Everything Hurts" picked up huge support from the likes of Solomun and DJ Sneak. Releases on labels such as Nervous, Bunny Tiger, OFF & Suara, cemented their name in clubland whilst support on national radio came from regular plays from Kiss, Capital & Radio 1 favourites such as Annie Mac, Pete Tong and Danny Howard
They formed Twisted Disco, a London based event that hosted the likes of Citizen, Kolombo, Sharam Jey, Denney, Climbers and Get Twisted Records launched in 2012 with a monster VA with tracks from Hannah Wants, Chris Lorenzo, Denney, Lee Webster & Tough Love. The guys passionate & hands-on approach attracted releases from legends such as Roger Sanchez, Todd Terry, Sandy Rivera as well as up and coming stars such as LiTek, Midnight City, Blaise & many more. The label has gone on to release over 60 records and recently became a division of Sony Columbia.
2014 saw TL release impressive tracks including ”Dreams" on Toolroom, the smash “Bring The Heat" EP; “Lonely Highway” which won Best Single at the BMA’s and the collaborative effort “Perfect Love" alongside French duo Amine Edge & DANCE.
2015 saw the guys score two official UK top 40’s with ”So Freakin' Tight" (11) & "Pony" (39) as well as claiming 4 Music Week Number #1’s & being nominated for DJ Mag Best Breakthrough DJ Act. Their signature sound is high in demand and attracting remix requests from the likes of Clean Bandit, Megan Trainor, Jess Glynn, Sigma, Sigala and Tough Love further cement themselves as tastemakers with weekly Kiss FM & Kiss Fresh radio shows.
2016 has been a year of change as the fourth TL major single with Island Records is on the way, plenty of club releases & collaborative efforts still to come and a heavy touring schedule including a highly anticipated US tour kicking off in October.
