Hoj and Lee Burridge introduce Tale and Tone
Global purveyors of iconic dancefloor moments and longtime friends Hoj and Lee Burridge have announced the launch of their new Tale and Tone imprint. To introduce the label proper the duo has released Storybook EP – 6 dreamy tracks OUT TODAY on vinyl (digital singles to follow).
Tale and Tone channels Hoj and Lee’s experiences exploring the world’s most sought after party destinations from the magic of hazy sunrises to the dim warehouses of underground’s past. The label acts as a bridge between the diverse environments in which dance music thrives, showcasing unique stories told by its sounds and devotées.
The Storybook EP charts the Tale and Tone journey starting with a full vinyl release on July 21 and digital singles to follow. The EP begins with the mystic groove of Daso and Lutz’s ‘De Libbe’ featuring Arooj Aftab, followed by the Caribbean inspired ethereal soundscapes of Cornucopia’s ‘Letter for Poly’. All Day I Dream mainstay Lost Desert has aligned with Amari for the intricately layered, vocal driver ‘Hunter’ featuring Adomas, while the revel soul of Dance Spirit’s ‘Wash Me Clean featuring Cari Golden calls out to the calmer side of the electronic spectrum. The release is capped off with the late night affair of Newman’s ‘The Sky and Earth‘ and Be Svendsen’s remix of ‘Mine Hender.’
“Lee and I are great friends and have been talking about starting a new project together for a long time. As DJs, we play a huge range of music in any given set, and we wanted to start a label that was less about a specific sound and more about showcasing great songs that we love to play – songs with story and groove. Tale and Tone features the music Lee and I would play in a back-to-back set. And the music we imagine playing at our dream night time ball.” -Hoj
This new venture offers a unique look into the minds and souls of the label heads, an intimate aural world with palpable authenticity. Hoj and Lee ask listeners to come along for the journey as these two best friends explore music close to their hearts cherry picked from legends in the scene and rising-stars alike. This is their story.
Stay tuned for the first digital release from the album coming soon!
