My Name is Tiga

Duration:
2 hours
First broadcast:
Friday 03 August 2012

Canada's electro ambassador Tiga returns to his 6 Mix residency where he explores 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.

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.
