Tim Love Lee founded the Tummy Touch label back in 1996, and immediately established a presence in the dance music world with Groove Armada. In the last few years has brought us Tom Vek and The Phenomenal Handclap Band. He also found time to record several fine albums and curate a few compilations. 15 years later he is commemorating his label with Fully Bearded: 15 Years of Tummy Touch in Dub, a collection of dubbed out versions of Tummy Touch classic tracks, plus a few choice extras.

Daphni is the alias of Caribou frontman Dan Snaith. He's done edits of tracks and also has recorded some new music, some of which has surfaced in the last couple of days. It is playfully funky and geared more to the dance floor. Delicious!
