"This week’s Essential Mix comes compliments of DJ/producer/vocalist Tiga, hailing from Montreal, Canada. As he says, he plays “techno records, house records, disco records and a little bit of everything”, so expect a mixed bag of electronic music over the next two hours."
An almighty offering from the beautiful people at Radio 1 this week, one of my all time favourites, Tiga. Remember that "sunglasses at night" tune, tiga and zyntherus. "Far from home" got him some attention a few years back (2006)of his debut album "Sexor". He also has many remixes to his name.
His second (soulwax produced) album is out later this month (27/04/09) "Ciao!", with James Murphy, amongst others, popping up a couple of times. I will definitely be purhasing this, but this mix is just about perfect. Some classic sounding Techno, some absolute storming dancefloor tracks, varied rhythms, heavy, light, upbeat, dark it's all here.
Enjoy! Oh and if you thought the Gui Boratto mix last week was good, i'd like to suggest this is better, much better.
