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.

Lissoms' second offering is a sample-driven, lofi
Glowing melancholia locked by skippy, textured drum structures across four tracks. Rough-hewn and nostalgic tropes shot through with a contemporary hue - one for the adventurous DJs.

Edmondson adds the fourth instalment to the Newcastle-via-Berlin label, after previous outings with Me Me Me & Hypercolour. Panoramic soundscapes, dusty broken beat & glitchy loops form Lissoms' most dancefloor-focused record yet.
