Cape Town duo Christian Tiger School provide the 3rd part of the Lissoms series. Both graduates of the Red Bull Music Academy and part of the Sónar line-up this summer – they’ve previously posted an LP for the mighty Tommy Boy & remixes for SubPop, and had their work remixed by luminaries like Mndsgn.
‘If You Want To’ embodies their sound and the fervent Cape Town beats scene aptly – esoteric UK influences sit amongst ambient soundscapes and a cracked breakbeat, pinned on a looped bassline – growing in intensity but using the most subtle of touches.
Gacha Bakradze’s version posits the track somewhere between slow-burning disco and krautrock, framing the character of the original with loose jams on his array of studio gear.
Finally, Edmondson’s version is a minimal, 2-steppy take honed by the Berlin sounds which have pricked his ears for the last couple of years.
Available on super limited 12” from 15/12.
