Born out of a passionate, lifelong love of music, Tongue Helmet initially started as a collaboration between two longtime friends, Timbuktu (Swamp Thing) and Danny Miles (July Talk). Now joined by familiar powerhouse talent Coins / Peter Project and DJiRATE, the group is complete.
A long-simmering creative dream for over a decade, this project combines the talents and experience of veteran musicians from seemingly distinct genres, bringing together surprisingly compatible sounds.
Tongue Helmet’s debut thirteen track LP titled Psychotropic Ape, is co-produced by Timbuktu and Danny Miles, and is a collaborative work in its purest inspirational form.
The project offers a unique and updated take on classic psychedelic hip-hop. Fans of Deltron 3030, Beastie Boys (think Paul’s Boutique) or Beck (Odelay era), will find themselves vibing to Tongue Helmet.
Psychotropic Ape will be released via URBNET digitally on July 19, and on CD and limited edition yellow vinyl LP on July 26.
In advance of the new release, the group has dropped the new “Cartoon Kool-Aid Kids” single. You can check it out below via Spotify.
