UK born, Melbourne based producer Tigs is going in hard on his first release of the year
Tigs is back and is bringing his versatile, eclectic brand of UK Bass music with him on his next EP, ‘Don’t Get Rude’. The 3 track release is coming out on his own label, Raw Tactics, on Jan 26th and it’s not one to be overlooked.
Raw Tactics have given us the massive ‘Best Not Miss’ to us to premiere – it’s a skippy tune with drums that border on UK Funky, punctuated by sinister, staccato strings and riding a chunky, rolling bassline. We fully back the g-funk inspired synth too!
The rest of the EP is just as large – title track ‘Don’t Get Rude’ is a dark yet bouncy 2 step garage affair with grimey, call-and-response style basslines and ‘Voodoo’ is a tribal infused Grime/UKG hybrid; sparse but weighty drums and a metallic bass drive the track which is haunted by eerie bells and drawn out vocals in the background.
