The origins of Montreal born DJ-producer-incipient Teutonic legend Tiga lie to the vague and troubling East, where he was weaned on the nefarious milk of the notorious 1980s Indian club scene.
2003 was the year that Tiga released his mix CD on !K7 for their DJ Kicks series. His take on Nelly's "Hot in Herre", released for the DJ Kicks compilation, became a huge success and resulted in it being licensed in the UK by Skint, as well as the GAS region by Warner Music. The video, which can be seen at http://www.eyeballnyc.com/tiga, features a sardonic view of the hip-hop world through some clever puppet wizardry from Tiga's brother, Thomas (aka Lord of the Marionette).
Tiga has also lent his vocals to Richard X's debut album on a track titled "You (Better Let Me Love You X 4) Tonight". Most recently, Tiga has remixed Alex Kidd's "Come With Me", Neon Judgement's "TV Treated", Scissor Sister's cover of Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb", Junior Jack (feat. Robert Smith)'s "Da Hype", and Peaches' "Shake Yer Dix". Already gaining massive rotation amongst club DJs, Tiga's latest single, "Pleasure from the Bass" is being released on the Belgian imprint PIAS. His first full-length original artist album is due within the year.
Philipp Lauer is a producer, musician and DJ based in Frankfurt. He performs as Lauer and also as one part in Tuff City Kids with Gerd Janson.
Raised on a strict diet of hip hop & punk rock, Philipp finally succumbed to the pleasures of electronic music in the late nineties when he started to produce deep house tracks.
One of his most successful projects in the early 2000 years was Arto Mwambe with Christian Beißwenger (AKA CB Funk, TCB). During that time Philipp founded his own label Brontosaurus and they played many live shows all around the globe.
His debut solo album "Phillips" was released in spring 2012 on Running Back, followed by "Borndom" 2015 on Permanent Vacation.
In 2013 he started to get serious with Gerd Janson: as Tuff City Kids they put out one release after the next and started to play shows together.
