Tiga's Top 6 (deal with it):
1) FPU - Crockett's Theme / Seven Of Nine:
already a decade old, but these tracks still have not really been bettered when it comes to the 80's electro-techno revival of the early 00s. At the time, i was so in love with them, and they really helped Turbo grow at a critical time. Peter Benisch was a thoughtful, talented producer, and i loved all his music.
2) Martini Bros - The Biggest Fan (Blackstrobe Remix)
i remember this being one of my favorites, and a record that really marked Turbo "coming out" internationally. The original was amazing, but Blackstrobe just nailed a remix that perfectly summed up the feelings and the mood of the time. Fun, playful, vocal..... and got Ivan Smagghe on our label!!! A definitive Turbo record.
3) ZZT - Lower State of Consciousness
i tried to avoid my own records, but the fact is that this is just a ridiculously dope record: genuinely weird, undeniably powerful, and not easy to duplicate (i know, ive tried). I also like records that capture a new feeling or a new relationship, and this was the SOUND of me and Zombie Nation getting in studio for the first time. I think its one of the best we have released. yes, i am biased.
4) Panash - Jack 2 Jack (Jesper Dahlback Remix)
this is a classic Turbo formula: find an old record that you felt was underated from your personal collection, aquire the rights, and get a master like Dahlback to remix it to perfection. The early years of Turbo would never have been the same without Jesper, and this was one of the first tracks that got us global cred.
5) Moby - I Like To Move In Here (Proxy Remix)
first off, having a big international name like Moby on the label felt legit, but thats not why i chose this. I picked it cuz for many years Proxy was THE go-to guy for total nu-jack-rave mastery. Yes, "Raven" was bigger, but i always felt this remix was incredible, with a deep and unique understanding of techno-funk. still sick. always dope. he still has never been beat.
6) Clouds - Consciousness
of the techno renaissance era tracks of the past few years, this one stands out for two reasons: first, because its a truly special techno anthem, and i think arguably the best techno record we ever released. second, because it marked a continued commitment to an artist and their development: Clouds were my fave from day one, but they just got better and better, and worked closely with me and my brother......and that feels like REAL label progress.
