My name is Tiga on BBC’s 6 music
aaamusic | On 04, Apr 2011
On Sunday 3rd April, revered electronic music veteran Tiga will be taking to the hallowed 6 Music decks, helming the 6 Mix with the aptly titled ‘My Name is Tiga’ show.
No stranger to radio, having hosted a show on CKUT in Montreal in the early 90’s and producing a series of podcasts in more recent years, the Montreal-based producer, DJ, label- head and tastemaker, will be delving deep into his superlative record collection for the 120-minute mix. A master class in synth-based sonic wizardry, he will play seminal releases from the likes of Aphex Twin and Cabaret Voltaire, alongside a choice selection of new cuts. The show will also exclusively premier new tracks from his ZZT project, plus a never-heard remix of one of his own tracks by Boys Noize.
An unparalleled resumé that includes two solo albums (‘Sexor’ and ‘Ciao!’), numerous collaborative projects – including his work with Zombie Nation under the ZZT moniker – and remixes for the likes of LCD Soundsystem and Soulwax has ensured that he remains one of the most inexhaustibly creative and respected musicians in dance music.
