Vibes from the the God.
A very bittersweet and trudging remix by Tiga who strips down “Shelter” down to its bare bones. Thus creating a hypnotic and deep track perfect for those after-afterparties.
A few words from Mr. Tiga himself:
“There’s just something special about making out in London, your mouth bursting with toffee and emotion, that ugly ferris wheel thing looming in the distance…This remix is a love letter to British Romance, from the heart of a Canadian Revolutionary.”

As the musical genius Gonzales prepares to unleash “Ivory Tower”, his latest venture with the help of the one and only Boys Noize here is his next single “I Am Europe”. A playful “guess-who-am-I” track that lays out all the comical absurdities of Europe. Make sure to check out the music video which is more of a trailer to the epic film that coincides with the album that features Tiga.
Djedjotronic takes on “I am Europe” turning it into a massive “diplomatic techno” track ready to globally dominate any dancefloor.
Looks like there is only one screening of “Ivory Tower” in North America which will be in Brooklyn, so everyone be there for this epic occasion.
NEW YORK: 21 September at Galapagos Art Space Presented by Chilly Gonzales at the piano 16 Main Street, Brooklyn, NY
A little Montreal on Montreal action between Tiga and the Chromeo boys. Dave 1 and P-Thugg transform this banger for a tune into a smooth pop tune that seduces the dance floor instead of destroy it. A nice little treat from some Canadians – hats off to all you Canucks for proving that you really do rule the winter world.

Jamie Lidell steps back from his new soulful crooner status to show his electronic roots. This is his banger take on Tiga’s absurd/cornball pop with some heavily distorted beat boxing. Don’t worry he throws in some heavily effected vocoder, Zapp & Roger sounding pentatonic vocal riffing in the middle of the track. I wonder if side of Jamie will be on his new album “Compass” coming out in May via Warp Records.

Peaches upcoming album seems to be shaping up into quite a big name collaboration project, with productions from Simian Mobile Disco, Gonzales, Digitalsim, Drums Of Death, and the one and only Dewaele Brothers. It’s like Peaches is the 2009 female version of Tiga’s “Ciao!” with all these collaborations.
