Hard Summer Festival ’10 Coverage

Posted on 11 August 2010 by levon

We’re back from the epic Hard Summer Festival, watching Tiga, Soulwax, Erol Alkan and many more artists tear up the crowd with their bangin’ beats. Unlike last year how Hard got shut down at the Forum, Hard Summer Fest this was an absolute success! A big thank you to the Hard crew for making it happen! We had an opportunity to speak to Tiga, as he informed us that the new ZZT release is 80% done. We’re expecting some good news soon. Photos will be up soon…

A Minute with Zombie Nation

Posted on 05 November 2009 by admin

We got a chance to speak to Zombie Nation Halloween night.

He was scheduled to perform at the massive Hard Haunted Mansion event in Los Angeles. We had a couple questions lined up which the curious Zombie Nation fan would find interesting, especially questions about his side project tag-team with Tiga known as ZZT. ZZT has brought us such tracks Lower State of Consciousness (which Justice has remixed), as well as the hugely popular The Worm.

One big mystery has always been history behind the ZZT name. As disappointing as it may sound, there’s no funky story behind it. ZZT is simply a combination of the first letters Z of Zombie Nation and T of Tiga. The extra Z is simply there because it sounds good, and doesn’t really stand for anything…. but we still dig the name.

Second, we asked about upcoming tracks. Tiga has been pushing for a ZZT LP sometime in the near future for the Turbo label. In the meantime though, they’ve still been working on new tracks. As a matter of fact, they have two tracks which were nearly completed last week. Around the time that this is published, Zombie Nation and Tiga should be in Montreal mastering the two new ZZT tracks.

Zombie Nation dropped the new tracks this Halloween night. The tracks are not yet completed, but the general gist of it can be seen in the video. Click it below.

(Non)Photos from TIGA at CONTROL

Posted on 30 May 2009 by shaunt

We’re back, and i’m here typing away when I really could be (should be) asleep by now…

We arrived at CONTROL early enough to see no more than a handful of people on the dancefloor, but by the end of Destructo’s opening set the Avalon began to live up to its expectation of being a danceclub.

Last night’s CONTROL was one of the best yet.

Question: What could be better than some of the world’s best electronic producers operating the decks within a lit ultra-massive ghettoblaster up on stage?
I’ll tell you: Seeing some of the world’s best electronic producers operating the decks within a lit ultra-massive ghettoblaster up on stage WITH access to free cocktails from Bacardi.

So about the night:
During James Murphy’s set, if you closed your eyes, you’d think you’re at a full-on discotheque (of course, i’m to young to really know what that means… but take my word for it [not that it matters]).
But the night really didn’t climax till Tiga blasted everyone into another mindimension dropping some of his new shit, some tracks for sexor and all kinds of other electro[clash] stuff. To say the least, it was the best CONTROL in a while.

This post wouldn’t be complete without some electronic industry gossip, right? Before his set, I had a chance to speak to Tiga about the future of ZZT (for those of you who don’t know, ZZT is the name of the EPIC collaboration between Tiga and Zombie Nation which has produced such tracks as Lower State of Consciousness and The Worm). Tiga hinted at the possibility of a full-on ZZT album within the not-so-distant future. Also, we asked about Russian producer [as well as label-mate] Proxy and whether he’d ever come to play in the U.S.. From what we knew, Proxy was having some visa issues, but Tiga assured us that this is [would get] resolved and that we’d soon probably get a chance to see a Proxy DJ set here in the States.
Bottom line, Tiga killed it, as the crowd kept going strong until 3AM (European readers: this is actually LATE for L.A.).

Blah blah blah blahblah… The fact of the matter is, you don’t want to read this. You want your photos. Face it. In reality, you’re probably on this site wondering whether or not you look intoxicated in the photos the kid and I took of you last night. I can’t help you with that…. yet.
Photos tomorrow.
GOOD NIGHT.

Update: (5/31) Photos are now up HERE…
