Our first taste of new Brooklyn trio Tiger Tooth came in the form of a techno producing pomeranian and a sassy, club-going baby doll featured in the band’s lead music video for “Tiger Asylum.” Comprised of Johnny Siera and synthesist/producer William Broussard of the wildly successful art-punk band The Death Set, and visual artist Sofia Szamosi, Tiger Tooth unites the three member’s unique outlook on visual aesthetic and commitment to “dark, slimy” techno masterpieces off their forthcoming “Tiger Tiger Tooth Tooth” EP out March 18th.
Out now on their very own Baby Tooth Imprint Tiger Tooth have recruited underground stalwarts Kleinfeld and Power Outage to take their debut single “Tiger Asylum” into the lab for official remixes. Described by Nest HQ as “frenzied hedonism” and “squelching acid house,” the “Tiger Asylum” remix pack features must-hear flips of the original and a B-Side remix of unreleased track “Monkey Baboon” by Krames.
With Groove Armada stating the “Kleinfeld mix is gonna do some damage,” and pack-wide support from industry legends Steve Lawler, The Crystal Method, Roger Sanchez, Erick Morillo, and more, the “Tiger Asylum” remixes are causing quite a stir. Taking a stab at “Tiger Asylum’s” a-side, fellow BK producer Kleinfeld makes use of skull-splitting kick drums and minimalistic percussive elements to bring the original to another level. Power Outage doesn’t disappoint with his take either, injecting his own flair with a series of inventive vocal samples.
The succinct video component to their remix pack is an experimental, spliced up, video mix that captures some “bizarre footage of Sofia” and fun-loving nature of the Brooklynites while they weave their first single + remixes together in mix form. As for how the band interprets the video, Siera says “It’s pretty fucking weird, but we like it.” Couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
The self-titled album will be released on May 2016.
