[Interview] Staying Cool With Tiga & The Crusade Against Boring Records

After contributing material and production to Tiga’s 2016 “No Fantasy Required” LP, an organic collaboration formed between the the Turbo Recordings and fellow Montrealer Clarian, the two have come together for one of a slew of projects that have set the former’s eventful spring and summer season.

The first single taken from his forthcoming debut album, “Television Days,” sees enigmatic DJ/producer Clarian release ‘Under The Gun’.

Minimal Effort Podcast By Steve Bug

Having grown up in Germany’s techno and acid-house heyday, Steve Bug’s love for a perfect groove is as apparent now as it was back then. His DJ skills and a keen, innovative ear led him not down the typical path of the early nineties trance and harder dance scene, but instead towards a fresher, hybrid sound–merging stripped deep house, tweaked out acid and more minimal forms of techno and electronic music. With annual label compilations, a variety of artist albums, and new concepts like the Forward to the Past series, Steve Bug continues to steadily develop his Poker Flat imprint, ... Read more
