Beginning 1 February, Tiga will release a weekly series of remix 12â€s for â€œSex Oâ€™Clockâ€, â€œOvertimeâ€, â€œGentle Giantâ€ and â€œLove Donâ€™t Dance Here Anymoreâ€, songs from his 2009 album Ciao! The ambitious project features some of the most respected and sought-after producers in dance music.
â€œFor these remixes, I looked to Titans. Standing on the roof of my greenhouse, I called out, â€˜Hey you, get off of that impossible cloud and into my car. Weâ€™re gonna drive all night â€˜til we hit Remix City!â€™â€
Sex Oâ€™Clock – Remixes by Matias Aguayo, Jamie Lidell and Trevor Jackson.
â€œI asked them, â€˜When can you have the remixes ready by?â€™ They said, â€˜About a month from now.â€™ I said, â€˜Time. Thatâ€™s precisely what the song is about. Use that.â€™â€
Overtime – Remixes by Adam Beyer and Brodinski.
â€œThese producers represent two sides of the Commemorative Dance Coin. To me, variety is that spicy element that seasons the living of our very lives.â€
Gentle Giant – Remixes by Seth Troxler and Mathew Jonson.
â€œWhen a song means a lot to you personally, having it remixed is a lot like sending your child to undergo plastic surgery. In this case, though, it was like having the surgery done by doctors you respect as musicians.â€
Love Donâ€™t Dance Here Anymore – Remix by Carl Craig. Instrumental version by Tiga.
â€œIt goes without saying that having Carl Craig remix my song is an honor. For the instrumental version, I removed all the vocals personally. It took nine hours. By the end, I was hysterical.â€
Tiga could not be more excited about these vinyl releases, and wants nothing more than fans to share in his enthusiasm. â€œIf you purchase all four, I will write your name and credit card information in a special leather-bound book. Also one copy will include a silver ticket, which you can trade in for a golden ticket. Which does nothing.â€
â€œIâ€™m a dreamer. I see the world through groove-colored glasses, ever watching the horizon for the whole world to come dancing into my arms.â€
