Tiger & Woods, Jacques Renault, Kid Color Recommended Soundboard

When: Fri., April 13, 10 p.m. 2012

Though the recent glut of musical acts with un-Google-able names and top-secret identities looks to be a reaction to the ubiquity of search engines and social networks, the anonymity of DJ and production duo Tiger & Woods is apparently a nod to electronic dance music's heyday, when illicit white-label remixes of popular songs—whether released by a superstar DJ or a total unknown—absolutely required a pseudonym. Self-described as "future boogie," the pair's work is built around tight electro rhythms and loops of thinly sliced samples that recall the decadent only-the-good-stuff vibe of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis's finest material and the disco and funk edits that became house music's foundational texts. —Miles Raymer Jacques Renault and Kid Color open.
