Since first bursting onto the scene back in 2004, Tiger Stripes has released on a varied array of labels including Ibadan, Get Physical, liebe*detail, Drumcode and Strictly Rhythm. Now, January 2014 sees the Swedish artist make his debut on Desolat on the ‘Sisters EP’.
Title-track 'Sisters' kicks things off with a bumping bassline and strong percussion and the track moves along until a distinctive vocal, which may possibly be one of the most memorable hooks of the year, enters the fold. ‘Sisters’ reminds you that there is always summer somewhere, a possible anthem.
Following on is ‘Keep A Movin’ which is a hypnotic rolling house track full of energy but with a darker vibe and an equally engrossing vocal. On remix duties, tINI instantly marks her personal stamp on the original by taking out much of the vocal, slowing the BPM and infusing a woosy meandering bassline with the original melody.
