My Name Is Tiga

Canada's electro ambassador Tiga begins a 6 Mix residency with the first of four shows exploring his love of synthesized music past, present and future.

Based in Montreal, Tiga's introduction to dance music came with the early 90s rave scene which inspired him to become a club DJ and set up his own label, Turbo Recordings. In the last decade he has become one of the most prolific producers in the world, remixing tracks by Soulwax, Fever Ray and the xx as well as releasing inspired covers of Nelly and Corey Hart.

He's also made his own solo albums - Sexor and Ciao! - and collaborates with Zombie Nation under the alias ZZT. Following his rapturously received 6 Mix earlier this year, Tiga steps up to the 6 Music decks to start a bi- monthly residency, playing a range of electronic music from the past three decades. There will also be a selection of cutting edge cuts from his DJ travels, alongside musings on music, football and much, much more.
