My Name Is Tiga - on 6 Music
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.
The show will be aired at 8pm on Sunday 3rd April, with a repeat on Saturday 9th April at 10pm, and will be available for streaming on the 6 Music website for two weeks.
