Visionquest not only makes up the supergroup of Seth Troxler, Lee Curtiss, Shaun Reeves, and Ryan Crosson, but it’s also a home to sounds that are supported by the foursome, like the new single from Canadian duo and VQ partypals, FOOTPRINTZ. “Dangers of the Mouth” is the first single from their forthcoming debut album, and Visionquest has started them off with a bang as they commission fellow Montrealean and Turbo mastermind, Tiga, for an uptempo rework that brings the dark, synthpop original off of its knees and into dancefloor territory. This great remix along with another rendition from Detroit’s Jimmy Edgar will be released exclusively on Beatport August 13th before its worldwide release on the 27th. √+Continue Reading
The other day Tiga made his return to his BBC 6music residency for the first time this year with a mix recorded unsuspectingly in Goa, India. Labeled as a ‘Trance’ special, Tiga characteristically takes the genre in his own direction for a mix unlike any you’ve heard before.

ps: If you somehow need more music to tide you over for the weekend, check out the MediaFire song finder I put together at SpotHeads.blogspot.com. For example: you type in “boys noize – yeah”, click search, fabulous MediaFire links to download present themselves, you wrap your ears around some chunage. It was utilized extensively in the last couple hours for tracking tracks down, let me know what you guys think.
Over the past 48 hours I’ve had a single track repeating over and over inside my busy little brain. For reasons unknown to me, Virginia based Dutchman: Martyn‘s remix of Tiga‘s ‘Gentle Giant’ has flown under the radar, so I’m gonna give you dirty dancers the low down. 2010′s spelt a rise in lyric-less vocal patterns in electronic music; that’s particularly prominent in this track, fusing together with orchestral synths and UK Garage beats to create an anthem that’s as dark and suspenseful, as it is mellow and refreshing.
You can always count on me for some nu-disco, dreamwave-y, glo-fi goodness…not today tho. Today I bring some filth. Big boy tracks by big boy artists Tiga (accompanied by big boy remixer A-Trak), DANGER + Boys Noize .
It’s official – my Holy Ship! cherry has been popped. Three days on the 4th largest cruise liner in the world with some of dance music’s most devoted attendees was one for the record books (now I do it all again in February). It’s pretty incredible to be in such close quarters with some of the most talented DJ’s around the globe, and I think this shared connection allowed for a lot of risks on the turntables, that, or the expected three sets from each performer willed them to dig deep into their collection. Either way, the music was incredible, as was the setting and the vibe. So swell in fact, I’ve put together my Top 10 Tracks as heard on Holy Ship! 2015 (January Sailing). Continue Reading
2014 running out, and all we can look forward to is the new year – awaiting what new artists, albums, and tracks will emerge. Well, we’ve discovered a gem to keep your ear on. We present to you Foreign & Domestic, a mysterious new project driven by the G House and Ghetto-tech movements. We can’t say much about their identity, but we can tell you they are ready for 2015 with a barrage of new music – 9 originals and 4 remixes right off the bat. If the most anthemic of hip hop and the deeper depths of bass house were locked in a room, the resulting product would be this project. Their December mini mix showcases all 13 tracks, and you can download the Tiga ‘Bugatti’ and Diplo/Alvaro ’6th Gear’ remixes here too!
