A very curious record, there has been speculation as to who the actual producer is.

The main hook of the song is in the lyrics, which namecheck various legendary techno and electro producers like Dave Clarke, Richie Hawtin, Sven Vath and Laurent Garnier before claiming that they "Look like a Gay". This tune could easily be mistaken for being homophobic, but fear not because it's obviously meant to be tongue-in-cheek.

This is made apparent in the second verse, which claims various techno cities such as Detroit, London, Berlin etc "Look like a Gay" too.

The main hook of the song however is in the breakdown, when a mantra is introduced of one simple name... Tiga!

Although Tiga is hetrosexual, he has had many homosexual rumours floating around him for years due to his "metrosexual" appearance.

This is a fun little tune which is sure to get people's attention on the dancefloor, some may frown but most will laugh. It should be massive in gay clubs, for the humour factor alone!

Musically it's nothing special, sounding like a rough Buick Project demo but still an interesting collector's item.
