While some still have him pinned as an electro-clash pin-up, there are many shades to Tiga. If you’ve tuned in to the My Name Is Tiga radio show on BBC6 Music, you’ll know this is a guy who digs deep for surprises. On his new mix-CD, the first he’s put together in years, Tiga lines up new and exclusive gear from his Turbo Recordings stable alongside cuts from Audion, Panda Bear, Blawan and many more. Some of his own studio handiwork makes it in, too, including his co-production with Matthew Dear, Plush. No one could explain it better than the man himself, and Tiga’s done just that in typically sly style.
“It’s been ages since my last mix CD, and there are plenty of reasons why,” he writes. “Fans tackling me in the streets and demanding I finally deliver the Rattle & Hum of beat-matched music compilations. Wading through an endless sea of technological options before finally settling on laser-cut MP3s. But, most importantly, the delay owes to my complexity and curiosity as a selector and openly eclectic human being. They call me The Seeker, and not just because of my tireless search for a better nickname.
“This is the first mix I’ve done that embodies the ethic of ‘Tempos Without Borders’, starting out around 108 BPM before ultimately arriving at 126, the mythical ‘Golden Rectangle’ of tempos. In addition to marking the debut of my latest single, Plush (co-produced with Matthew Dear), the CD also features a ton of exclusives from my label, Turbo Recordings, making it a crystal ball through which you can glimpse the music-encrusted future I call now.” Non Stop is out 9 November through Liberator Music/PIAS.
