Friday, July 31st • Bar opens 8PM, Club doors 10PM
Tiga is the head of Montreal's Turbo Recordings. Underground club hits from the last few years include "Bugatti," "Let's Go Dancing," "Plush" and "Pleasure From The Bass," all of which bear the same trademark sillyness combined with an undeniable groove.
Shadow Child has been making tunes under the name Dave Spoon - Official Page for over a decade, but it was his 2012 hit "String Thing" released on Claude VonStroke's Dirtybird Records that took his career to the next level. Guided by swinging percussion and throbbing sub-bass, Shadow Child's records and sets alike are made to move you.
Blisspop's Chris Kennedy plays first, with Solomon Sanchez and Roger Samuel rocking the bar.

My Name Is Tiga. Welcome to the Bio-Dome, mec!
As you know, my remix work has slowed considerably as of late. While my versions of tracks by Alter Ego, New Young Pony Club, The Gossip and Human League have only enhanced my reputation as the Sex Whiz of Sonic Parkour, I felt I needed to start hoarding my best ideas for my own music. The remix of Alter Ego’s “Gary”, for instance, forced me to cannibalize much of the work I’d done in my now-legendary sessions with Bobby McFerrin. It was then that I knew that I had to draw the line.
The seeds for ZZT, my ongoing collaboration with Zombie Nation, when we hit it off at the semi-biannual Gigolo High-Earners Galmour Pageant and Hot Meal. After falling out with Gigolo over accusations of cyber-arson, I approached him about working together, possibly on music. I soon came to love his thing-throwing, humor-having ways. Our tracks tend to be “live” in nature, in that we try to only use parts that require four hands at a time. Or 19 fingers and three lips. It depends.
Over the past few years, I have continued to tour the globe extensively. I have eaten Club Sandwiches in over 60 countries and done “The Sandwich” in over 600 clubs. The past few years have also seen a resurgence at my record label, Turbo. The work done by Thomas Von Party in A&R and Oliver Interactive in International Business Affairs has been invaluable. I can’t express how much I appreciate their efforts in making Turbo the Towerhorse it is today. I would be remiss, however, in not mentioning the real star of the show, our Branding Consultant, Brandon Branding.
Most importantly, 2009 will see the release of my new LP, “Ciao!” This album will surely cement my status as a Storytella and Funky Fella. “Ciao!” is the fruit of 15 months of collaborations with such leading lights as Soulwax, Jesper Dahlback, Gonzales, Jori Hulkonnen, Jake Shears and James Murphy. An impressive roster, to say the least.
All in all, at the end of the day, I can’t help but gaze into the reflecting pool and think to myself, “I guess I really turned the night on, huh?”
UK based Shadow Child made his debut via the mighty Dirtybird early in 2012, mostly thanks to the EP's lead track "String Thing" dominating Eats Everything' and Claude Vonstroke's DJ sets, the World over.This new alias for one of House music's already known names has turned down an exciting path with underground bass-led grooves plus all the quirks and depth you'd expect in the cooler rooms around the globe. Remixes and DJ dates are filling the diary as a new musical dawn begins.. the Shadow Child is no more a 'side-Project', it's here to stay.
