Tiga: No Fantasy Required, Part Three – Truth

SEEN has been a fan of electronic music pioneer Tiga for some time, since the hypnotic ‘Make Me Fall In Love’, so we are enjoying his third full-length album, No Fantasy Required, which is out on Counter Records. The accompanying video series, directed by Tiga himself, illuminates his creative process and is typically coloured by his articulate humour. Part Three is succinctly entitled Truth.

SEEN has been a fan of electronic music pioneer Tiga for some time, since the hypnotic ‘Make Me Fall In Love’, so we are enjoying his third full-length album, No Fantasy Required, which is out on Counter Records. The accompanying video series, directed by Tiga himself, illuminates his creative process and is typically coloured by his articulate humour. Part Three is succinctly entitled Truth. Watch it here:

“Your look into my life concludes forever with a shocking personal revelation and two of the steamiest in-studio performances a film crew was ever paid to capture.”

The latest single taken from No Fantasy Required, Blondes Have More Fun’,
exemplifies Tiga’s knack for deceptively meaningful songwriting and impossibly lush production values. It’s one of the album’s most poignant pieces:

The single is accompanied by a trio of remixes from contemporary electronica royalty: prolific Swedish on-the-rise  producer Jonas Rathsman; Running Back boss Gerd Janson; and international house and techno breakout du jour, The Black Madonna.

Tiga is musical evolution personified, with a peerless resumé that includes three solo albums, singles such as ‘Bugatti’, ‘Sunglasses At Night’, ‘Pleasure From The Bass’, ‘You Gonna Want Me’ and numerous collaborative projects. Tiga has toured internationally as a DJ and a full live show, further bolstering the international reputation of his record label Turbo.

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
