TENDERLONIOUS – in 10 Records

Worldwide Sounds

Seeing as we are huge fans of 22a music, we wanted to ask Tenderlonious, one of the founding members of the collective, about some his influences and favourite records.

22a is a London-based label which specializes in vinyl only releases and despite only having 3 releases so far, they are one of the most exciting new labels around. Not because of the whole vinyl-only, ultra-limited pressings (100 per release) but mostly because the music is outstanding. A blend of lo-fi electronic meets organic vibes that works great on a dance floor or in your headphones.

We also recommend these two guest mixes we released from the 22a music fam. One from Henry Wu and one from Jesse Bassa.

Check out some of Tenderlonious‘ favourite records. Some great discoveries!
