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.

Somewhere Over the Reignbow: LGBT Rights Protected in Queen’s Speech

With all the recent sombre news, coupled with the feeling that communities in cities are experiencing particular oppression, it is indeed heartening to hear the following words in the Queen’s speech: “My government will make further progress to tackle the gender pay gap and discrimination against people on the basis of their race, faith, gender, …

Oh to be at Camino Bankside Now that Summer is Here

With temperatures set to soar as though it was 1976 (SEEN remembers sweltering through that), your best bet is to get anywhere by the river Thames, where the views are gobsmacking, and the food is fabulous. Like last year, London is awash with marvellous gins – and let’s remind ourselves, if you drink gin you are partaking in a resonant and historical pastime that is inextricably linked to London’s rich, vibrant and – dare we say it – dark past.

Kieren Hughes: Urban Dreamscape

SEEN was instantly captivated by the work of the Cheltenham-born artist Kieren Hughes recently. His unsettling images seem born of modern-day anxieties about urban living, as in Chicago Fever Dream or the privileges accrued by a rich elite, as in The Last Privilege of an Oil Man.
