Planet Turbo

From the Turbo Recordings website:

Planet | Turbo has begun! This is where the action will be at for the next little while:

Beginning on April 29 and continuing through August, Turbo will present a new series of events, headlined by Tiga. The shows will feature an incredible array of performers (Boys Noize, Erol Alkan, 2ManyDJs, Zombie Nation, Ivan Smagghe, PROXY, Sei A, Jori Hulkkonen, Thomas Von Party).

“We dreamt up the concept by the ecologically sustainable fireplace at Turbo Headquarters, located deep in the Mountains of Montreal,” says Tiga, calling from a mobile payphone. “The tour is something of a Victory Lap celebrating its own inevitable triumph. We’ve run the numbers, and we’ve talked to people from Main Street to Sweat Boulevard. We know what our party people want, and they’re going to get it so good.”

The “Planet Turbo” tour will be mirrored by the release of exclusive content, including remixes of Turbo and Tiga classics, plus new material from a veritable who’s-hooray of the biggest names in dance music. There will also be a wealth of bonus Web features, as Turbo artists and friends share their unbelievably unique perspectives on the countries visited.

“The tour will take us to the U.S., Canada, Holland, the UK, Italy, Germany, Spain, Australia, Serbia, Belgium, Portugal and Sweden. I did plenty of research beforehand, to make sure these places fit our definition of ‘planet’. We wanted to concentrate on the Earth’s surface, meaning we had to turn down a couple of dates at Magmafest and Crust Sensations,” says Tiga, removing an enormous drill from the front of his mixer.

“What we’re doing is like planting trees all over the world, but far more important. When you sow a funky idea in the soul of a young person, the sky ain’t no kind of limit. And I intend to reap, creep.”
