  • Tiga is taking a new live show on the road in 2015. The Turbo Recordings founder has nine festival dates lined up across Europe this summer, starting with Berlin Festival on May 29th and wrapping up at Pukkelpop in Belgium on August 20th. The live show, which was developed at Stuart Price's LA studio, sees Jori Hulkkonen joining Tiga onstage. The visual direction was handled by design collective Pfadfinderai, best known for their work with Modeselektor and Moderat, and Helmi (Division Paris), who worked with Tiga on the recent video for "Bugatti." In addition to performing some of his best-known tunes—"You Gonna Want Me," "Sunglasses At Night," "Pleasure From The Bass"—Tiga will also perform new, unreleased material produced in collaboration with Hudson Mohawke, Matthew Dear, Boys Noize and Martin Buttrich. "For as long as I can remember—which is forever—I've been a DJ," says Tiga. "But it's just not enough anymore. I have performed for thousands, but have I ever truly held anyone's gaze as I sang straight into their eyes? What lies beyond this vulgar, headphone-shaped prison? Can I move the hearts of millions without facing myself first? Will I ever truly own my own madness?" He adds: "This summer, grab a front-row seat as these questions become answers. Join me at nine select festivals over the European summer as I embrace all the flawed glory of a perfect past and explore a future too unlimited not to share with everyone. Time means nothing to me now. There is no media. There are no masses. There is only you, me, my voice, my moves, and a love supreme." Watch a teaser video for the live show below.
