Hey Tiga, please…. The clicking of dozens of cameras fills the room making the person behind the flashes look momentarily even more fragile. He arrived on the scene suddenly; nobody knew who he was or had heard anything about him.
His name is Tiga, just Tiga. What do we know about this year old guy who lives in the city of Montreal along with one million other Canadians?
Why is he following in the footsteps of artists like Carl Craig and Playgroup, who since have proven their DJing skills in the electronic universe of the DJ-Kicks series? But I learned from him the importance of the structure of a set and how such planning can be the difference between heaven and hell for you and the audience!
At the end ofhe founded his own label, Turbo Recordings, from the proceeds of the sale of his club. Alongside his responsibilities as label manager and producer, Tiga is still a DJ with his own particular ideas about the job.
Even if I had a month off, I would use it to have a good listen to my entire record collection! In contrast to earlier mix CDs, Tiga has included all kinds of styles in this DJ-Kicks set and has nevertheless managed to retain a nightclub dance context.
Tiga more or less followed his instincts when preparing for the DJ-Kicks set, but he does admit to having some basic rules. But I always know what the first record will be, as this record often determines what follows for the rest of the evening and can work like a kind of calling card.
And I always think about my last record or the one I should play at the peak of my set. My record collection is sorted according to the energy level of each record — the chilled-out tunes at the front and the big bombs at the back! The single entered several top-ten charts around the world and reactivated the discussion about the revival of the eighties sound.
Tiga himself Home - Iggy Pop - A Million In Prizes (The Anthology) no problem with success or the hype that Dying In Beauty - Tiga - DJ-Kicks him. Every artist finds inspiration in the past, from which he draws strength in the present. In this sense, I have remained true to myself. It only becomes a trap if you, as an artist, stop looking to the future. That can happen to any musician during his A Horse With No Name - America - A Horse With No Name, but if you just keep letting the past repeat itself like a loop, then you really have a problem!
This is how DJs like Tiga in particular, as a result of their diverse range of skills, have come to play on the whole spectrum of music scene. The finished set Dying In Beauty - Tiga - DJ-Kicks therefore recorded using three turntables and with the aid of a loop player. He would define himself as a techno musician, who wants to conduct experiments with new forms of pop music. He is an out and out DJ. Jolly Music — Radio Jolly Adult. De-funked Remix 2.
