Tiga has announced that his new album – which has now been given the title ‘No Fantasy Required’ – will be out on March 4 via Counter.
As well as a name and date, the Canadian producer has shared a new track from the album, ‘Planet E’, which has been made alongside Scottish producer Hudson Mohawke.
‘Planet E’ features another one of those deadpan vocals that the Canadian producer usually uses to such great effect, but this one might just a little too cold and robotic for some on first inspection.
The track itself full of suspense and tension, but it never really releases it in suitably bombastic or ear-catching way, which is a little disappointing, especially so given Mohawke’s propensity for creating memorable club bangers.
“First of all, I never talk about the music itself,” explains Tiga from a youth hostel in Calgary. “It’s borderline sacrilegious to talk about the grooves. They have a language all their own, the grooves do. I just birth them and send them out into the world to make others happy. And that’s what makes me happy, and that’s what makes you happy.”
