It’s Like A Multicolored Sugar Rush


You either get a multicolored sugar-rush from Tiga’s distinctive brand of tongue-in-cheekiness or you think eccentricity gone wrong. Check the video for “Shoes” below and decide. You can download the track here. I say the Montreal-born DJ/producer delivers a charismatic mix of sound and songwriting that’s entertaining more often than not. But if campy lyrics and loose rapping isn’t your thing; check his collaboration with Zombie Nation as ZZT. Videos for “Lower State of Consciousness” “The Worm” after the jump…

Oh yea, if you’re in LA on May 29, Tiga, James Murphy and Destructo are playing Avalon as part of the “VH1 Save The Music” tour. Tiga and James Murphy on a big soundsystem sounds like as good of reason as I’m gonna get to hit up the mega club. And for those not in LA, he’ll be touring North America (in support of his new album Ciao, which will be released in the US on May 26 via World’s Fair), starting with a date at New York’s Webster Hall on May 22, then hitting up Chicago, Detroit (for DEMF!), San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Denver, before heading to his home turf with shows in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver. All tour dates after the jump…
