Tender Games – So Hot [SlothBoogie Editz]

slothboogie editz - tender games
The SlothBoogie crew are back with the third instalment of their SBEDITZ label, offering another delicious collection of juicy house and disco cuts. The London collective are a purveyor of good times, acclaimed for both their commitment to an infectious dance-floor vibe and the discovery of new talent. Naturally, SBEDITZ003 lends strong weight to this reputation. The 12” features four crispy reworks by Jad & The, Tender Games, Swales and SlothBoogie themselves, unified by a summer disco flair and a solid mid-tempo groove.
The track we have the pleasure of premiering today takes the A2: Tender Games’ (soundcloud) synthy funk machine ‘So Hot’. The brainchild of Berlin based producers Ulrich Harrison (HRRSN), and Marlon Hoffstadt, Tender Games have been traversing a promising trajectory carved out by their impressive discography on Berlin imprint Suol. Their diverse sound is full of charm and dancefloor dexterity, drawing inspirations from a mixed bag of Jazz, African Funk, House, Reggae and new Rap. With such an approach to the craft, it doesn’t surprise us that SlothBoogie handed them the razor to provide the stylish rework that is ‘So Hot’. Layering the synth lines with some rousing guitar licks and a smattering of bongos, the final product is a glorious piece of paradisiac music perfect for lounging, grooving, and everything in between. There’s a playful lightness to this track, and the mingling of styles and sounds pays off in spades. Already lending their DJ support are Dimitri from Paris, The Revenge and Black Loops, among a host of others.

If the sellout success of SBEDITZ002 is anything to go by (we think it is), the 300 copies of this vinyl only release will be snatched up fast. Head to Juno or your distributor of choice to get your hands on the wax from 27th of April.
