Tiga follows mega-hits Let’s Go Dancing and Bugatti with a massive Boys Noize collab
It’s been a long time in the making. From their early days as label-mates on the legendary Gigolo records, these two dons have remixed each other, DJ’d back-to-back, even worked on the same motion picture together (Ivory Tower), but not until now have they teamed up so completely, or to such devastating effect. On the eve of BNR’s 10 year celebrations, where the two will headline a series of 6 shows together, Turbo proudly presents ‘100.’
Both producers come through clearly: the slamming drums and acid Boys Noize has so thoroughly mastered, the clever vocal hooks, catchy basslines and ravey breakbeat flourishes that are the feathers in Tiga’s boa – the best of both artists are brought together here, with a distinct nod to their electro roots. It’s an immediate winner, asserting it’s sonic prowess through a flawless arrangement, confidently proclaiming it’s perfection in a slick, round triple-digit. One-hundred.
The magic, as in Mind Dimension, Let’s Go Dancing, or Bugatti, is for packaging true pop into a compact, techno power-punch that leaves underground cred intact. Both Tiga and Boys Noize are outstandingly versatile DJs who consistently yearn for something more than the obvious tropes of EDM, embracing extremes, fitting in the esoteric, being connoisseurs of a multitude of micro-genres of electronic music. ‘Jam #1’ is an ode to these low-slung techno roots, a stripped-down bonus beat that lays down the law of the drum machine, and sets the stage for the forthcoming ‘808 IRAQ’ pulled from the same Berlin studio-session, to be released on BNR.
