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.
