Lipservice Records represents the British label based in London, founded by Chicken Lips in 2009.

In 1999 Andrew Meecham and Dean Meredith formed Chicken Lips. The original idea was to seek underground salvation and immerse themselves in the musical styles that they grew up with and loved.

Together they also made up the seminal early nineties dance act Bizarre Inc who scored 3 top ten national hits, toured the world and worked with some of the biggest names in the biz.

2003 saw brethren Stevie Kotey join the lips, with Stevie on board to fulfill DJ and tour duties and help compile the now classic DJ Kicks for !K7.

In 2005 the final piece of the jigsaw was added in the form of long time friend and collaborator Jonny Spencer aka Jonny Tonic. Jonny provided songs & vocals for the Making Faces LP.

As well as working under the Chicken Lips moniker they also record as Big200 (DC Recordings) and Zeefungk (The more dancefloor motivated side of Chicken Lips). Also solo projects White light Circus / The Rhythm Odyssey / Goat Dance (Dean), and the hugely successful Emperor Machine (Andy), Their approach to production is quite simply unique!

Their debut album ‘Echoman’ was in many ways ahead of it's time drawing on eighties NYC influences. It sounds as current now (if not more so) than what it did back in 1999.

The second album ‘Extended play’ had an underground hit single "He Not In" which is now been quoted by many as one of the most influential dance classics of the last decade.

‘Making Faces’ was the third and last LP released in 2006 and since then the collective has been busy with solo projects, making babies and touring all over the world. But 2010 sees the reigniting of the Chicken Lips, with their new label Lipservice providing a home to vast array of talent they find and nurture. Lipservice is also a home for their own productions and the highly anticipated 4th Album.

As well as the home for all the Chicken Lips back catalog releases (thats the catalog numbers starting "LPD"), it will be the home for our future releases (thats the new stuff starting "LPS"). Also we aim to release some material from artists we know and like. If you have a demo, then upload it here. Stick around friends.
