Your reviews of the mix

...Tiga was one of the first real mover and shaker in the electronic scene in Montreal, threw some of the first underground events, had one of the first and only info lines, stepped up to the Dj plate(s) and won many crowds over the years. He eventually became a recognized name both as a Dj and producer in and out of Montreal... what can I say, the guy has paid his dues and then some; as far dj'ing, I think he's a Montreal Dj talent, and we have tons! Big-ups Tiga for representing us on the BBC!
Nik - Montreal

fauno, poland

What an essential mix this has been! Really, Tiga is no. 1! He is coming here in Novi Sad for Exit Noise Summer Festival, can't wait for that! BTW, does anybody have a tracklisting for last week's essential mix (Josh Wink & Mark Farina)?
Alex, Serbia

Awesome mix, this guy rocks
Andrei, US/Romania

Similar to the MTL guy, followed Tiga back in the days of Sona and other underground clubs in Montreal. Haven't liked some of his productions, but really dig his remixes. Haven't seen him in YEARS, but this EM makes me want to go back. And for the people that can't groove to this and yearn for trance. Trance is DEAD. Listen to Tiesto - he plays more house than anything now (depending on the venue). You gotta hear the acid / minimal / techno / electro in a club. That'll make you appreciate it. Pure floor bangers.

It seems like some of the people posting here are forgetting that the Essential Mix is about exposing the art of the DJ mix. Some mixes are made for the dancefloor, some are made for home listening and some work well in both places. Tiga really gives us a taste of the music that works well in his world of production and DJing. Whatever title you put it under it is original and refreshing. Madonna was hot on the dancefloor at one time for many of today's music lovers and he does not forget that when including her in his mix. Thanks for including Tiga in you coverage of the worlds best DJ's!

I used to follow Tiga 10 years ago, when he was Djing in underground parties downtown Montreal. The guy was my favorite. Hehe.. his track at that moment was Da Funk by Daft Punk. It was his signature ;) Anyway... I still think Tiga knows how to play with turntables. His father was a DJ and so he his. I enjoy most of his set when I am listening to them with my headphones, at work. But on a dancefloor, the last few times I saw him recently was sort of disappointing. The guy is now a big big DJ Star/Producer. And his attitude changed with it :( Well Tiga... if you read this : Please put a smile on your face when you are behind the decks ;-P Your are one of the greatest... Vive Montreal!
Tourtiere Tremblay, Montreal

Really sorry but I thought this was really boring. Really good technically but in the end that is no substitute for good music. As i find with a lot of this elctro stuff, the mix did not have any life in it.

well I saw TIGA live in maybe my expectations for this set were placed too high...I definitely prefer TIGA live, but this studio set had it´s highlights too!
sofia, Portugal

Not bad at all - perhaps could have been tighter at times but hey, i'm not on the Essential Mix am i?! I will be, very soon this space :-)
Scott Wilcox (Chelmsford Essex)

Tiga gets more than his fair share of attention.His music is always good, but not groundbreaking, and his remixing is great but somewhat formulaic.Nice to hear him pushing his own sound here though;a solid and EM from Canada, he's looking good for 2006.
Fred, Guernsey

A+, just like i expected from Tiga. my favorite artist since I love techno in belgium.
Chris - The Netherlands

We need mor trance! I am sick of this housey minimal rubbish, get something harder on the essential mix.
South Shields

Awesome! this guy is getting bigger n bigger, looking forward to seeing him next week at digital newcastle!
Vexar - Newcastle

michele, italy

Top notch from Tiga!!
Big M, Essex


Absolute blinder, this man never lets his music down... Should be featured alot more in the UK
Paul - Liverpool

Total class!!!

No complaints here for a stellar mix by that true Canadian, Tiga. Blasting from one end to the other, a strong 120 minutes! "True North, Strong and Free!"
Jonathan - Smack in the middle of CANADA
