Back in 2003 Damian Lazarus launched Crosstown Rebels whilst Tiga was dazzling the electronic scene with his Sunglasses At Night single and Turbo Recordings imprint. At this time both artists and labels were operating in the same field, releasing and playing each others tracks whilst enjoying the swell of public support for the emerging left of centre take on Techno & Electroclash, which eventually blew up to be dubbed Electro. However since then we have seen differing fortunes, with Tiga initially profiting whilst Crosstown suffered and now the opposite being the case, and therefore it is perhaps this original synergy and mutual respect that has bought these mid 2000’s protagonists back together.

Tiga - The Picture (Crosstown Rebels)

Tiga will release his first new material for 4 years ‘The Picture’ backed by a Subb-an remix of his classic 2004 single ‘Pleasure from the Bass‘ as part of Crosstown Rebels 100th release celebrations, and as you would expect from these ¬†former sparring partners this is electro-tech as they only know how, quality stuff.
