I may have this wrong, but I think Tiga was playing techno and early trance when I first met him sometime in '93 or '94. This mostly classic hardcore mix was converted from cassette yesterday, and has not been heard since in was recorded in '92!
Even back then, he was always super stylish, and the impression I got was that he was as concerned as much with his visual presentation as the listening experience. I know that he opened DNA, a record store in Montreal, in 1994—a couple of years before my partners and I opened Breakbeat Science in NYC. I also vaguely remember the launch of his now powerhouse label Turbo Recordings in 1998.
