Had the pleasure of interviewing mysterioso disco/boogie edit tandem Tiger & Woods about some of their favorite and forgotten tracks for RBMA Radio . Anyone at all intrigued by the duo’s beautifully executed extended/incrementally shifting takes on the likes of Imagination’s “Music & Lights” (playfully re-dubbed “Gin Nation” ) and other boogie-fied sample fare should dig their selections and commentary. Vintage Italo disco, Evelyn Champagne King, neo-classic Golf Channel material, Mary Jane Girls, late ’80s house and more are all paid homage. Also: their recollection of hearing “Just an Illusion” for the first time as teenagers back in the day at Rome’s Piper Club that’s practically cinematic in its retelling. Enjoy!
Their bodies might be stationed in northern and southern Europe, but the collective consciousness of Tiger & Woods is more often found levitating in deep analogue space. This mysterious duo’s trademark fusion of boogie, house and compressed funk has caused a constant buzz around Running Back and the Editainment label – while the live Tiger & Woods experience has touched down at some of the world’s most discerning disco outposts. With their EPs Golden Bear and Toolkit For Winter Fitness , the duo continue their exploratory twist of golden disco breaks, reinterpreted for the modern club age.
