It's been a whirlwind 12 months for Tough Love, the London duo who've tapped the heart of the city.
Appearing as a ginormous blip on our radar with tunes on Nurvous, OFF and Dope Wax, to name only a few, recently they were snapped up by Toolroom Records to solidify the funky deep house output of Mark Knight's powerhouse label.
With gigs coming up at Air & Breath, Digital Brighton, Lightbox and Fire this month, you'll have to try pretty hard to avoid them in the south of England, so you better prepare to get tough loved up.
