We would like to introduce you to a new imprint launched in 2013 called Touch of Class Records. Founder and PillowTalk member Michael Tello along with co-founder Ray Zuniga are paying homage to their fathers by continuing the family business name and artistic principle. Originally from Los Angeles, the label mates relocated and now call San Francisco their home. TOC Records puts a new West Coast label on the map that looks to showcase the distinctive deep house and raw techno textures that embody both hometowns.
Four years ago Michael Tello and Ray Zuniga started collaborating on music together and the innovative partnership, Signal Flow, was born. Their time is spent producing and DJing on the West Coast and all over Berlin and Europe, as well as collaborating with artists such as Aquarius Heaven, Jonny Cruz, Tone of Arc, Navid Izadi, Strangers in Heaven, Eric Volta, PillowTalk, dOP and many more. They have quickly made a name for their eclectic sound and energy.
The first Touch Of Class release, “Dirty Hands E.P.”, is by the labels very own, Signal Flow, along with Jonny Cruz due out May 2013. The lead single 'Dirty Hands', produced along with Jonny Cruz of My Favorite Robot, features Aquarius Heaven on vocal duty. The track has been getting serious buzz since the debut live performance on Studio R (radio stream), Berlin. The B-side, 'Drug Lips' features vocals from Navid Izadi, which has been getting heavy play from Damian Lazarus around the world.
