Tiger & Woods are a notoriously reclusive duo. What we do know about them is that Tiger’s first name is Larry and Wood’s is David. Larry and David. Larry David. Ahem. Point taken. They don’t want us to know who they are. Although an incredibly rare interview with the San Francisco Examiner unearthed a love of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ so you do the math.
Their sublime disco/ electro funk/ future boogie releases caused waves on their incredibly exclusive Editainment label, which is also home to acts Cleo & Patra and Pop & Eye (clearly a theme emerging here).
Their debut album ‘Through The Green’ released on Gerd Janson’s Running back label in 2011 was lavished with praise by the likes of Resident Advisor and Pitchfork, who described the record as “inherently social and gregarious; it's music that makes me want to be around people because it feels so generous. It's not a good-times party album so much as it's an album about the good times”. Single ‘Gin Nation’ was added to playlists across the globe, including finding its way into sets by the likes of Tensnake.
They also released 15 track free download album ‘Wiki & Leaks’ at the end of their 2011 tour of the US.
The duo say they draw inspiration from Italo Disco, Detroit techno, Chicago House and the Kashif’s Boogie Bassline, as well as the obvious nods to the late 80’s by way of referencing the sounds of Prince and Janet Jackson.
Although it is unknown how long either Larry Tiger and David Woods have been producing tunes, they have alluded to the fact one of them has been producing since the 90’s, while both have been DJ’s with other (you guessed it, unknown) solo projects.
Of their anonymity, Tiger & Woods have explained that in an age where everything is over exposed and easily accessible, they much preferred to have people focus on their music “rather than their profile pictures”.
Their remix credits have been released on labels such as Warp Records, DFA, Compost and Aeropop Records.
