Tiga’s live show sees him performing alongside Jori Hulkonnen in front of a backdrop of Venetian blinds inspired by Berlin’s Panorama Bar. Kindred spirit and close friend Stuart Price helped Tiga curate the music.“He’s a ridiculously talented person. I trusted him. We sat down with my whole catalogue, with the songs broken downinto parts, and we decided which songs were in, which were out, what sounds we wanted to push, how we wanted to control the energy levels.”
