The boss of Montreal’s own Turbo Recordings has put out a dynamite album that includes a track collaboration with none other than electronic music’s beloved Hudson Mohawke. The exchange between the two digital aesthetes is a soundscape to relish in.
Set to be released on March 4 by Counter Records, the No Fantasy Required album will be sure to set the mood wonky for the upcoming dance season, with Tiga on the roster for San Diego’s CRSSD Festival immediately following the album’s release.
Planet E comes in at lucky number seven on the album. This collaboration between Tiga and HudMo is a fun little number with fun and sexy house elements: a roomy drum line, bouncy bass, mesmerizingly dissonant key melody, and a hunky chorus repeatedly exhaling, “With the joy that I’m feeling, I’m on Planet E.” The chorus then descends into utter cutty insanity mid-way, bestowing a subsequent spine-tingling earworm. Check out the track below for your listening pleasure.
The album includes some crowd favorites such as Bugatti and Don’t Break My Heart.
