Montreal’s very own DJ and producer, Tiga will be releasing his highly anticipated third studio album, No Fantasy Required, TOMORROW! To celebrate release, the collection is now streaming a day early via THUMP. CLICK HERE to listen NOW.
Tiga is also excited to share a brand new remix of “Make Me Fall In Love.” The Tiga vs. Audion mix is now available for listening exclusively on SPIN.com. Listen HERE! This new pop version of the track sees the two frequent collaborators – and original co-writers of the song – fun-tune the proceedings in an open and honest attempt to conquer the radio charts, which Tiga is convinced still exist. The track which Annie Mac has premiered as a Hottest Record In The World features vocals by Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears.
In his illustrious career, Tiga has remixed LCD Soundsystem, Depeche Mode, Coldcut, The XX and Moby, among many others. He has used his Turbo label to break new acts like Duke Dumont, Chromeo, Gesaffelstein and Boyz Noize. In addition, he has frequently collaborated with luminaries such as James Murphy, Pusha T and, on No Fantasy Required, Hudson Mohawke and Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters. Now, working with key producer Matthew Dear, and Finnish wizard Jori Hulkkonen (who also performs with him live). No Fantasy Required is a collection of inspired songs that just happen to be delivered via visceral dance music. Tiga has made a record on which he says he feels “more honest, open and playful.” It’s an album with songs and real character, one also packed with instant bangers. The album can be pre-ordered now HERE and is available everywhere for purchase tomorrow.
Tiga will be bringing his full live production to the US for the first time. Following the US dates, he will be kicking off his “NON STOP” XOYO spring residency! He will play the legendary UK club every Saturday beginning in April with special guests each week. More information on the dates can be found below.
