Having garnered support across the board for a string of top shelf re-edits, Tiger & Woods have been creating a bit of fuss, not only for their music but also for the fact that no one know's who they really are. Tonight that's all set to change as they debut the Tiger & Woods Soundsytem at Warm's monthly party at Plastic People.
While speculation is rife, with names likes Tim Goldsworthy, Pat Mahoney and James Murphy all being bandied about, there is only one way to find out. (Well before the cat's out the bag next week that is.) The last few tickets are still up for grabs, get them here.
"Shrouded in mystery! No one knows where it comes from; no one knows where it’s going. Well, that’s all about to change. Those special extended disco versions that have been carefully tuned, remixed, over-dubbed, sliced and diced by Larry Tiger and David Woods have caused quite a stir. In an endless rain of edits, they are a cut above the rest. Looking to the future, while digging in the past, Tiger & Woods use both recognizable and exotic sources supplemented with original production to take you to undiscovered terrains that somehow feel like home.
Here’s how they met: One day in a dusty basement, digging for records of course, these two fine gentlemen nearly got into a fight over a nameless boogie record which is so rare (super rare!) that even the usual disco detectives hadn’t discovered it yet. Actually, they still haven’t. Without a name – and only identified by a test pressing sticker dedicated to the NYC-disco-DJ-legend Walter “Hot Trix” Scott – the 72-year old owner of the record store/basement accidently placed the record on his belt-driven turntable. Turning their heads and smacking their lips, both were so full of lust to get their hands on this precious relic that they both rushed to the booth, waving their hard-earned cash.
Some Italian profanities and chest-beating later, Larry and David decided to buy the thing together (the old dude had raised the price sky-high by this point) and take it to Tiger’s studio. Unfortunately, the fruit of their teamwork never saw the light of day due to a hard drive crash…and you know what they say…you can’t recreate the magic of the moment. But the guys kept on working, and as they timidly presented their early works to a mutual friend (an avid record collector) he gasped: “This is what DJ Sneak should sound like today!”
