On March 4th, Montreal recording artist Tiga will release the conclusion to a trilogy of albums with No Fantasy Required. Today, the artist has shared a collaboration with Hudson Mohawke from the album titled "Planet E." The track is now streaming exclusively via Pitchfork and is also Zane Lowe's World Record on Beats 1!
In his illustrious career, Tiga has remixed LCD Soundsystem, Depeche Mode, Coldcut, The XX and Moby, among many others. He has used his Turbo label to break new acts like Duke Dumont, Chromeo, Gesaffelstein and Boyz Noize. In addition, he has frequently collaborated with luminaries such as James Murphy, Pusha T and, on No Fantasy Required, Hudson Mohawke and Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters. Now, working with key producer Matthew Dear, and Finnish wizard Jori Hulkkonen (who also performs with him live), Tiga has made a record on which he says he feels "more honest, open and playful."
No Fantasy Required is a collection of inspired songs that just happen to be delivered via visceral dance music. It's an album with songs and real character, one also packed with instant bangers. Full tracklist can be found below, and the album can be pre-ordered now HERE.
In addition, Tiga will be bringing his full live production to the US for the first time - More information on the dates can be found below. Stay tuned for more exciting announcements in the coming weeks!
