Tiga's latest beat-mixed affair (his first for the revered DJ Kicks series) fits perfectly into the nü-electro landscape. In fact, fans of the Montreal DJ/producer's recent DJ sets will find that his DJ Kicks is a fine reflection of his club work. Over the course of a tight, seamlessly mixed 24-track journey, Tiga name-checks the likes of Adult., Chromeo, Playgroup, Tutto Matto, Soft Cell, Swayzak, and Märtini Bros, among others. The set closes with Tiga's Mister Hollywood version of Felix da Housecat's now-classic "Madame Hollywood," wherein Tiga's detached delivery replaces Miss Kittin's equally cool vocals of the original. An essential disc for that next house party.—MP
