The bi-monthly 6Music residency starts here…
Following his rapturously received debut appearance on the station in April, Canada’s electronic ambassador Tiga will be returning to the hallowed BBC 6Music decks on Sunday 9th October for the first edition of a new bi-monthly residency with the aptly titled ‘My Name Is Tiga’ show.
The show, which will be broadcast this Sunday from 8pm to 10pm, will see the Montreal-based producer, DJ, label head and tastemaker delve deep into his collection and deliver a master class in forward-thinking electronic music, all underpinned by his inimitable personality. If you heard his first show, you can expect the return of sections like Internet Corner, Tiga’s Mailbag & Football Corner, as well as an immaculate selection of classic to cutting edge music, and world exclusive never-before-heard tracks.
Two decades deep into his career and going stronger than ever, Tiga remains a pioneer of the electronic underground. An unparalleled resumé that includes two solo albums (‘Sexor’ and ‘Ciao!’), numerous collaborative projects – including his work with Zombie Nation under the ZZT monikor – and remixes for the likes of LCD Soundsystem, Soulwax, and The XX has ensured that he remains one of the most inexhaustibly creative and respected musicians in dance music. Not to mention that as the head of the burgeoning Turbo Recordings label he has been the driving force behind stellar releases from the likes of Chromeo, Gesaffelstein, Azari & III and Boys Noize.
confirmed remixes for forthcoming singles from Azari & III and Friendly Fires, a touring schedule that stretches into 2012 and the Turbo Recordings imprint flourishing, he is a man very much at the top of his game. With the new ‘My Name Is Tiga show’, listeners will be welcomed into the world of one of the defining electronic musicians of our generation.
The show will be broadcasted on Sunday between 8pm and 10pm, with a repeat airing on Saturday 15th October. The mix will also be available for streaming on the 6 Music website until 23rd October.
