This weeks podcast of the week comes from DJ Tiga in the fair city of montreal, Canada.

From wikipedia:

“He (Tiga) graduated from Selwyn House School, a prestigious school in Westmount. Before producing music, he was involved in the promotion of rave parties in his native city during the early 1990s, also Tiga was involved in the creation of world renowned afterhours club SONA. In 1994, he opened a record store named DNA Records, and in 1998 founded his own label, Turbo Recordings.

Tiga is widely known for his remixes: Tomas Andersson‘s “Washing Up”, Scissor Sisters‘ “Comfortably Numb” and Felix da Housecat‘s “Madame Hollywood” but also for his covers of Nelly‘s “Hot in Herre” and Corey Hart‘s “Sunglasses at Night“. He produces his own material, but has also worked with Zyntherius, Richard X and Jake Shears from Scissor Sisters. He has frequently collaborated with Mateo Murphy (with whom Tiga forms the duo TGV) and Jesper Dahlbäck, who had produced many of Tiga’s newer remixes. Tiga is also good friends with Steph and David Dewaele from Soulwax, who produced about half of the tracks on Tiga’s debut album Sexor. His song “3 Weeks” has received repeated airplay in night clubs. Soulwax are currently producing Tiga’s second album. His song “You Gonna Want Me” is featured on CTV’s So You Think You Can Dance Canada commercial.

As of late 2008, Tiga has continued to produce music in collaboration with Zombie Nation under the pseudonym ZZT; Two 12″ releases have resulted from the collaboration.”
