The EP's release will trail Tiga's 'Turbo 20' North American tour
Tiga and The Martinez Brothers have got together in the studio to produce the Part I EP, which will be out (credited to Tiga & The Martinez Brothers) on Tiga's Turbo Recordings label on 16 November.
Originally, we're told, the three went into the studio with a view to Tiga simply producing the next Martinez Brothers record. But the sessions soon evolved into a full-on collaborative project in which, says Tiga, "Chris and Steve brought a deep knowledge of house music and DJ energy-flow, while I left my deep hatred of live studio jam sessions at the door." He describes the results as "tougher, funkier and weirder than 99.3% of contemporary dance music".
The EP's lead track Blessed has already been released, and can be heard here. A Part II EP, featuring more tracks culled from the same sessions, will be released on the Brothers' own Cuttin' Headz label (credited to The Martinez Brothers & Tiga) further down the line.
Tiga also recently announced a seven-date Turbo 20 tour of North America, to mark Turbo Recordings' 20th birthday. The dates for that are as follows:

16 Nov: Kin Kin Club, Guadalajara, Mexico
