Tiga, Boyz Noise
Turbo Recordings’ 171th release sees label boss Tiga collaborate with legend Boys Noize for a three track EP titled “100”.
News had already surfaced that there was a collaboration in the offing, and it had everyone eagerly await for it to release. Upon the first few listens, it is clear that the title track 100, is a combination of both these legends’ styles, encapsulating acid, breakbeat elements and catchy basslines, which is why they blend together perfectly.
100 is your A-side track, which fulfils the brief of being a techno monster. Think back to the summer anthem ‘Bugatti’ and you’ll find that this track, brings together heady levels of acid elements, combined with a catchy bassline, clever male vocals that add an almost sexy, lazy vibe to it, without compromising on it’s dance floor capabilities. The flawless arrangement and composition of this track showcases the versatility of both producers who have the ability to work with elements that go outside their realm and still find a way to make it work. There’s also a dub version of the track that only has the certain vocal components and it brings the slamming drums, and the acid elements to the fore.
‘Jam #1’, which is the other track that rounds off this EP is the B-Side track. Going back to low-slung techno roots, it gives off a more visceral vibe, and is that perfect 3am-wind-down track. If you’re listening to this track in a club, it would be your stripped-down, warehouse loft, which is exactly the vibe it gives off. Low-key elements are the dominant factor in this track, once again showing how technically versatile both these artists are.
