Boomkat Product Review:
The third in a trilogy of albums released by SND for the Mille Plateaux label, 'Tender Love' was originally released in 2002 and cemented their fascination with percussive reduction and shuffling rhythms. Precise, sparkling keys and a sharp allignment of clicks and bass kicks dominate proceedings, with strictly controlled components still somehow conveying enough funk to pre-empt the compacted swing of the future-garage scene so fashionable almost a decade later. It's hard to think of any artists working within the electronic field that have managed to create a sound of their own so completely - concluding that despite relentless efforts from a host of admirers, nothing has ever really managed to sound quite like this, and nothing ever will. CLASSIC.
