‘Tongue Tied’ is the new single from Tigerlight, hailing the launch of her exciting record label, Tightlight Musik. A potent slab of sassy electronica, ‘Tongue Tied’ is composed with unique textures and vibrations recorded from the streets of East Berlin, then deliciously drizzled with Tigerlight’s sultry vocals and underpinned with her signature deep bass rumbles. This package comes with three tasty guest remixes – after Tigerlight and Slamboree’s sell out UK November tour, Mike Freer was an obvious choice for remix duties adding heavy break beat wizardry to the project he has delivered a floor banging electro fused monster. Cinematic Deep House/Garage hero Rain City Riot (Toolroom/Armada), cooks up a colossal Jackin’ house bomb, primed to shake down the peak time floors and Tracy Rhodes (aka My System Echo / Classic) works up a deep and disco tinged groover, teased with infectious melodies and percussive beats.
“Electronic music is so beautifully full of different colours with a multitude of shades that it would be a shame to not being able to play with many at once and watch as they create new and exciting intensities. With ‘Tongue Tied’ I sought to blend and draw out new textures and musical pathways, working with individual elements to weave sounds and stories together.” – Tigerlight
