Tiga announces first album in 7 years
Tiga occupies a niche wholly his own. Having championed the underground since 1998, when he founded his acclaimed Turbo Recordings, the Montreal producer was thrust into the wider industry limelight in 2014 thanks to his quirky, crossover single, “Bugatti.” Now Tiga is preparing an even bigger leap with the announcement of his new album No Fantasy Required — his first since 2009’s Ciao!
Tiga’s new album will be released on Ninja Tune’s Counter Records on March 4, and will feature 11 tracks in total. Ahead of the release, he’s unveiled “Planet E,” a dingy, rave-centric collaboration with Hudson Mohawke.
Tiga said of the song: “This was a collaboration with Hudson Mohawke, another kindred spirit I identified and subsequently befriended. We worked on it while waiting for a cab at the airport.”
