Getting to Know Tough Love

Tough Love stopped by the Moooi pop-up studio during the Nexus Lounge Amsterdam to talk about their ADE experience, share some of their latest projects, and to take our Take 5 quiz. 

Formed in 2011, Tough Love are a British duo consisting of Alec and Stefan. They are best known for their debut single “So Freakin’ Tight,” which peaked at number 11 on the UK Singles Chart. The duo has built a cult following of hardcore dance music fans across the UK, and released two Top 40 hits in 2015. That same year, they also cemented their underground prowess with a weekly residency for ‘The Redlight’ at Sankeys Ibiza alongside DJ EZ, Todd Terry and Matt Jam Lamont.

When asked who they would most like to collaborate on a design project with, Tough Love told us:

“Prince. Yeah, Prince. That wouldn’t be so unconventional though would it?”

When asked what their guilty pleasure tv show is, they said:

“Orange is the New Black. And Taxi.”

When asked which Disney soundtrack they’d like to remix, the duo told us:

“I’m going Little Mermaid. Yeah, Little Mermaid. Sebastian’s killing it with the vocals and the drums and stuff. Put a stutter on it, a little reverb, and oh, that’s smashing.”

Listen to the interview here to find out what their best hangover cure is, what their ADE experience was like, and about all of their upcoming projects.
