He might have made his name as one of the founding fathers of electroclash, but Montreal-based DJ Tiga's contribution to the DJ Kicks series proves he's got a range and talent to outlive the genre. Rather than choosing the obvious genre-defining tracks, he's hunted out some stellar remixers from the field of punk-funk and electro-pop: there's Adult twisting Jolly Music's "Radio Jolly" into a gothic pulse, DFA recasting Le Tigre as shrill disco maidens on "Deceptacon", and Trevor Jackson adopting his Playgroup guise to reinvent Chromeo's "You're So Gangsta" as a digital funk number, vibrating with stuttering electronic pin-drops, and splashed with a comfy burst of saxophone.
Tiga is, it had to be said, still one for the occasional 1980s fashion crime--resurrecting Stevie V's "Dirty Cash" for the new millennium is a thoroughly gruesome idea, and the very idea should be put wherever they put Flock of Seagulls. But he makes a remarkably good case for the rehabilitation of many of the hallmarks of the decade of excess: take Codec & Flexor's "Time Has Changed", for example, which revisits the mood of electronic melancholy once perfected by Depeche Mode but casts it within a thoroughly modern-sounding framework of glitchy futurism. --Louis Pattison

However, it doesnt stop it from being an accessible album. There are some good records that Tiga plays across two or three tracks adding to the excellent mixing. With 24 tracks the mixing becomes so important and Tiga does it well. It creates an atmosphere that keeps you interested, but not overly focused on a particular moment.
A few tracks total under 2 minutes, they bring a great element to the mix, and offer excellent seamless transition. Tiga really dug underground for alot of this stuff, you can tell. It's not designed to be an overly commercial album, but it's still great. Go pick up an NSYNC album if thats a problem. Studio !K7 is ussually a pretty reliable label too. So, for all you house heads out there, this is for you. A must have in my opinion.
Man, quality dirty electro albums taste like candy. Eat this baby up.
Now he gets the call for the highly lauded DJ Kicks series, and it rocks, in a squirrelly, squelchy, heavy-bass kinda way, leaving last year's notion of cold electroclash way behind for the new nu-wave, stomping good electro-pop-punk. Connecting the saxophone (!) soloing Chromeo/Playgroup "You're So Gangsta" - ace record - to Tutto Matto's "You" (referencing Breeders "Cannonball"), with bleepy, synthy Sir Drew and Le Tigre's riotous attitude "Deceptacon" and slick instrumental via Soft Cell shows a marvelous ear for cutting records together.
Flowing to darker, seedier tunes on "Rather Be" from Crowdpleaser & St. Plomb to abstract examples of his own ("Man Hrdina") and Swayzak deepen the 24-track experience, climaxing with a personal statement on where this strain of music should go; Tiga's cover of Felix Da Housecat's "Madam Hollywood" removes Miss Kittin's aloof vocals for his own supple voice, an emotional reinterpretation that replaces kitsch with resonance, the lyrics (perhaps) a reflection on his life experiences.
Of course, Tiga hasn't gone Hollywood at all, though his efforts the past few years show he's already a star. Need further proof? Check out DJ Kicks, it will be one of 2003's five best albums.
