contrary to it’s title this song has nothing to do with gin. this is a song i could listen to over and over again, and i do. tiger & woods are an awesome and technically impressive dance duo. ‘gin nation’ is from their album ‘through the green’ which was released in 2011. all of the tracks from this album are perpetually looping; you hear the same sound over and over again in the often 8+ minute tracks. but no song ever feels too long. let me share a quote from the pair on their style and looping technique in particular that i think sheds some light on their artistic process, “i think what we do is something in-between [just using] samples and edits - we just focus on like, this one bit and focus on certain parts, where you have a song, and there’s some parts you just want to listen to forever, like a bridge that you go back and forth to listen to. to relive that bassline, that point, we’re obsessed with this kind of thing - we love loops. We believe for most people it’s the same thing, to underscore the things you love, and yeah we change and restructure to bring an emphasis to it. It’s like fixing the beat, extending the break, if we just love the point from 0:35 - 0:38 and just mess with those few seconds.” all of this said 'gin nation' is most definitely one of the best disco edits ever. it's all about having fun and being happy and, can't forget, what criteria makes for a good party…which in these guys' case is one that is filled with, “sequins and pearls/ and lots of pretty girls.” i couldn't agree more.
