This is an Egon Ronay-style guide to the best of electroclash. It really does lead you snowballing into the discovery of the artists you just need to know about. Tiga has recognised and been part of the rapidly gathering momentum of this music scene which I feel is soon to wedge in the collective conscience of UK dance. Each track is confidently layered with melodies from the bass and often the rythm upwards. Take a listen to Stock Exchange (Miss Kittin and The Hacker) which brilliantly embodies this. Porno actress (Dopplereffekt) proves how dark and dirty the album can be, carrying similar pop sensibilities to the likes of Soft Cell. Indeed, Marc Almond's appearance on the Soul on Soul collaboration with System F somehow doesn't come as a surprise.
This album shows the slow but inexorable filter through into mainstream from the recesses of the best of our 80s music memories. If you liked Felix's Kittinz and thee Glitz you will certainly get on well wih this. Fischerspooner's endtrack undoubtedly heralds an exciting and long overdue energy injection into 2002.

5.0 out of 5 stars the future! 2 April 2002
Format:Audio CD
This c.d is a must for all electronic fans, as well as those open minded enough. American Gigolo is a 25 track mix from Germany's international deejay gigolo records and highlights their best releases to date. However this isn't some boring showcase of their work, it's truly a great mix by the up and coming DJ Tiga. Its tracks hark back to the fabulous 80s but with a modern slant. The first 6 tracks will make you sit back and nod your head, then with the outburst of tigas "sunglasses at night" the tempo will push and push through the fabulous "gratin dauphinois" by miss kitten and the hacker ending up the mind blowing "emerge" by multi million dollar signing fisherspooner. Now if that isn't a sign we are on to something big....
All in all, an excellent listen and a sign of things to come in the dance industry
Best tracks: Kitsu "skylight" / Miss Kitten and The Hacker "gratin dauphinois" / Fisherspooner "emerge"
(shame the original of frank sinatra isn't included)

3.0 out of 5 stars Hardcore Gigolo 4 April 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is an interesting mix disc from the prolific German label, International Deejay Gigolos.
The celebrity DJ on the mix is Tiga, one half of Tiga and Zyntherius. The aforementioned T & G have made a bit of a name for themselves with the wonderful 'Sunglasses at Night' and if you enjoyed the retro-synth of that tune, you'll probably like this.
I liked this album very much, but felt that it took about half the CD before it really took off. Track 12, the excellent 'Vicious Game' from David Carretta really sets the whole thing going, backed up by Miss Kitten and Hacker and ending suitably with Fischerspooner 'Emerge'. People have accused this whole scene of being a little empty but there is a really good pumping pace to the album.
A real retro-synth/techno pick and mix then. I just wish the level of the second half could have been maintained throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars refreshing synth-pop, electro, nu-wave treats 10 April 2002
By R Diaz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Slip on some white gloves and powder your face, it's time to taste American Gigolo's glamorous back catalog, positively brimming with synth-pop, electro and nu-wave treats. Surely way too chic for us normal folk, at least Turbo Records main man Tiga offers a friendly peek into the sound bubbling out of the underground and riding a thunderous media wave since late 2001.
You can see why, as the artists here inject much needed personality into their music. Take Linda Lamb's throb job "Hot Room," complete with swanky yet provocative vocals, or the cyber-naughty voice box duet "Porno Actress." There's even some genuine funk tossed in from Filippo Naughty Moscatello on "Communicate." But of course, daft starlet Miss Kittin makes several appearances, notably "Frank Sinatra" (the label's biggest hit) and her coy follow-up "Stock Exchange."
Tiga deftly cuts through 25 tracks in smooth yet lively fashion, and hey, even includes his so-wrong so-right smash remake of "Sunglasses at Night" with fellow troublemaker Zyntherius (Jori Hulkonnen). Granted, American Gigolo will probably sell about 100 copies to fellow odd-types here in the United States, but at least they can be comforted when this lands in several Best of 2002 charts at the end of the year. 4.5/5 stars

A great compilation for those who seek the r e a l groove behind all this hype about "electro-clash". DJ Hell (owner and founder of Gigolo records) single-handedly started this trend with his posse in Munich. I've bought many Gigolo records for the last five years and there's a reason why! Now I cannot wait to go to Munich and see the real scene. I recommend Hell's mix-CD as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars BURN BABY BURN!!! 25 May 2002
By Carlos Zepeda - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Not much I have heard or listen from DJ TIGA until American Gigolo and now all I have to say is... where have you being all of my club life??? Excellent DJ skills on great remixes from the best selection of new/techno-electro tracks that are currently out there. Tiga, offers us some great remixes on System F's Soul on Soul remixed by no other than musical genious THE HACKER. When I first heard Christopher Just " I'm a disco dancer" I went YEAHHHHHHH and had to listen to that track over and over, is now part of my answering phone greeting. A MUST!!!
5.0 out of 5 stars The Retro-Electro Genius of Gigolo Records 16 Jan 2002
By "moze22" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Are Detroit and Munich sister cities? They should be. The tracks on American Gigolo are quite like those constantly emerging from the Motor City's techno-soul underground. Mixed by DJ Tiga, this collection of past and present Gigolo releases should not be missed! It will please trance, techno, and house fans, as well as that portion of the populace who loved New Order and Depeche Mode in the 80s, but missed the boat on everything since. Aside from the occasional disco-house cut, most of the songs are dark and dirty electro, with Miss Kittin (gotta love her) gracing three tracks with her stoic, eurotrash vocals. Kraftwerk's eternal echo, as well as the influence of Juan Atkins in his Model 500 days, is unmistakeable here, especially in contributions by The Hacker, Fischerspooner, and Dopplereffekt. If you tend towards dance music with an earthy feel or prefer the sounds of standard instruments, this may not be for you. American Gigolo is full of sounds made by electricity---buttons, knobs, synthesizers, effects processors, etc. But perhaps pick it up anyways. It could easily convert you.
