Tonight at Slake, the Turbo techno tactician returns to make us all dance; as Montreal’s favorite son Tiga comes to the heart of the city this time to provide an unforgettable night of raunchy rhythmic madness. Maintaining his penchant for seeing what’s next before caring about what’s trending, Tiga’s been making music for over a decade’s time that’s still just as invigorating as the first time you would hear it; and with the roll he’s been on currently with Audion (aka Matthew Dear) and his Turbo Recordings label, there’s absolutely no stopping him from making everyone get ready to get down. Joining him at Slake will be Rynecologist (BNR/Fool’s Gold), a fellow Canadian (via Toronto) who’s been making noise with his unique take on dancefloor banger etiquette. Along with the aforementioned Canadian producers will be residents Alex English and RekLES, as well as techno-oriented local Sheepshead. Tickets are sure to be snatched up fast, so check out the flyer, ticket link and a preview of what’s to come, down below.
