“It transforms the original from an almost tongue in cheek parable on alien invasion to a more seductive, steadier portrayal of house. That flash epitomizes the way the music of that period has been re-appropriated nigh on a decade later.”

Tiga brings up a Ton for Crosstown Rebels

Canadian badman Tiga returns to Crosstown Rebels for their hundredth release in September. Whilst the label is the home of uber cool house these days, if you went back to it’s beginning it was famous for making the music that emerged from the Electroclash genre, not least their first compilation, which feature the stunning ‘Mandate my Ass’ by Le Dust Sucker.

By the time this one came around it was clear label boss Damian Lazarus was pursuing a new musical mandate, and has since managed to stay ahead of the curve. But this release harks back to that original time as well as staying up to date, re-releasing Tiga’s gnarly masterpiece ‘Pleasure from the Bass’ (with a Subb-An remix to bring it up to date to the current Crosstown template) alongside a brand new track. You can catch the Candaian love god playing Sankeys on Friday 17th August as well for a Turbo Recordings showcase.
