Tiga plans on living forever!

There's no way to describe Tiga, the man just renders you speechless. Here are some of the wackiest interview answers we've received - but we love him all the more for it!

You're really charismatic in your videos. Have you considered going into acting or directing?

I like writing, and would like to write a book or script soon. I'm not a very good actor, although I have a limited range, within which I can fool people. As for directing I have only thought about it in very abstract terms, like how a kid thinks about being a marine biologist.

Who have been some of your favourite people to collaborate with?

Over the years I have been very lucky and had the chance to work with some amazing people. Soulwax were a big part of my life, both as friends and musical collaborators: I loved working with James Murphy, Gonzales is magical, Jesper Dahlback is my techno soulmate, Jori Hulkkonen my mystery man, William Carney my writing partner. Nagi Noda was an incredible artist and an inspiration. I also always loved working with Scissor Sisters. 

What do you want to leave behind as the Tiga legacy?

I don't think about it – I plan on living forever. But I would like to leave behind a massive fortune. And also a charitable organization that helps children, sharks, elephants and women (possibly in that order).

What are you most looking forward to when you come to Singapore?

Food. Shopping. The F1 race. Shopping. I love everything about Singapore. Except the humidity.

Finally, a word to your fans...

Until quite recently I never really thought of my fans. I came from a nightclub background where the audience was not seen as a group of ‘fans’.... but rather just as the crowd. But in the past years i have realized that fans are the foundation that everything is built on... and I have been extremely lucky to have such great fans: they are patient, supportive and like to dance.

So to my fans: Thank you, and lets dance. 


Catch Tiga at F1 Zone 4 and then at Zouk on Saturday, Sept 25.
