TIM LOVE LEE
Tim “Love” Lee, the eccentric A&R maverick behind the Tummy Touch record label, started out his professional career in music playing Hammond organ for 80s pop stars, Katrina & The Waves but it was as a DJ on the early UK Acid House scene that Lee really developed his skills as a “selector” of fine and far out music.
Since releasing his first full length album in 1997 Tim has rocked crowds all around the world; from Helsinki to Sydney, San Francisco to Moscow, Hong Kong to Paris. From huge festivals (like Benicassim in Spain, Bestival & The Big Chill in the UK) to world famous discos (Ministry Of Sound and Fabric, London) to infamous dive bars and celeb hang outs (The Viper Rooms in Hollywood, NYC’s Rose Bar), Tim’s sets always produce a smile.
In the summer of 2005 Tim was invited to curate a show at the Xpo Gallery in Brooklyn. Every night Tim performed live electronic music with the likes of Tim Goldsworthy of DFA and Pere Ubu’s Tony Maimone. In 2006 he was asked by MOMA to curate one of their legendary Warm Up summer parties at the PS1 museum in Queens, NYC. Lee’s selecting skills have landed him radio shows with KISS FM, BBC 6 Music and NYC’s East Village Radio as well as official DJ Mix CD releases from Universal Records, Keep Diggin and Stereo Deluxe / Ministry Of Sound. His work with East Village Radio has seen him interview the likes of DJ Shadow, The Cars, Metronomy, Orbital
