Don't Break My Heart
by Tiga

— Released 31st October 2015 on Counter Records

Counter is impossibly excited to announce the signing of Tiga, an artist who effortlessly straddles underground techno and pop and counts some of dance music’s biggest names as friends and collaborators.

Following the major success of 'Bugatti' (which featured Pusha T on a later version) and more recently his collaboration with Eats Everything, Tiga is preparing to release his third album; the first since 2009’s Ciao! early next year on Counter. “It’s a natural fit - I’m t...

Counter is impossibly excited to announce the signing of Tiga, an artist who effortlessly straddles underground techno and pop and counts some of dance music’s biggest names as friends and collaborators.

Following the major success of 'Bugatti' (which featured Pusha T on a later version) and more recently his collaboration with Eats Everything, Tiga is preparing to release his third album; the first since 2009’s Ciao! early next year on Counter. “It’s a natural fit - I’m the original Counter. I count RESULTS. Advantage: Tiga City,” says Tiga.

“Seven years is a lifetime, especially for lifetime full-time dreamers like me. Entire fantasy worlds have been loved and lost. Restaurants have opened and closed. I’ve taken the spiritual advice of those closest to me and chosen to remain inside the present, listening and growing until there’s no choice to spring out of the box and share my gift. And that gift is the simplest of questions and answers. What is love? It is what it is, and what it is is it’s everything."

Tiga is a godfather of dance music, who’s redefined the genre by making music that’s fun, funny and seriously exciting. He’s remixed Ninja Tune founders Coldcut, Depeche Mode, The XX, LCD Soundsystem and Moby, released the first ever record by Duke Dumont, others from Gesaffelstein, Azari & III, Chromeo and Boys Noize, and is a frequent collaborator of other dance innovators such as James Murphy and, more recently, Hudson Mohawke and Paranoid London.

Having grown up in a hippy commune in Goa before his family relocated to the bohemian hotbed of Montreal, Tiga didn’t even have to make up a performance name. He was born to make music.

“The same world that has given me everything breaks my heart every day-ay. But if that’s the price I have to pay-ay, I wouldn’t have it any other way-ay. I can’t stop singing everything I say-ay.” says an exhausted Tiga, tears of song-sweat streaming down his natural singer’s face.
