Montreal techno don Tiga has paired up with Scottish producer Hudson Mohawke on a new track, "Planet E." A cross between the French-Canadian's signature spacey sounds and Mohawke's hip-hop-influenced production, the song will be featured as a single off No Fantasy Required, Tiga's forthcoming LP.
In typically humorous fashion, the Canadian artist also shared a few thoughts on his collaborative process:
"We worked on it while waiting for a cab at the airport. The rest of the details are blurry; all I have in my notebook on Hudson for that day is 'Young, hip-hop - really good friends.' These kind of limitations are intentional; alone you can deliberate forever. But when you have to make someone else happy, all the personal anxieties go out the airport window and onto some baggage loader. Let him worry about staying current in an ever-evolving dance music landscape."
The album, which will also feature collaborations with Scissor Sisters, Paranoid London, and Matthew Dear, is expected to drop on March 4.
