Tiga, the Montreal-based DJ, gives us his second original CD of minimal electro. Ciao! sounds heavily influenced by NYC post-disco, largely due to co-production from Soulwax and LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy, but is drastically more minimal than either group, with many songs featuring little more than a single synth line and spoken word vocals. The strongest tracks are the most melodic ones, and when Tiga starts to sing it evokes the Pet Shop Boys. The highlight is easily the single, â€œShoes,â€ featuring a dead-pan exchange between Tiga and a girl about taking her shoes off over stuttering keyboards. The simplicity really clicks, and makes for perfect dance- party fodder.
