I have to admit that when I first saw this release, knowing Tiga's love for the 80's, I thought Night Train was going to be a cover of the Visage classic. His vocals would really suit that track.

However, this is not a solo Tiga release. It's his TGV project with Mateo Murphy, who he worked with before hooking up with Jesper Dahlback & Soulwax.

Therefore Tiga's vocals are not on these tracks. They follow a much more pure techno vibe.

Night Train IS actually sampled heavily upon an 80's track, though it's not Visage. It samples Yazoo - Goodbye 70's, a pretty obscure (unless you're a fan of Yazoo) early track.

The riff is mixed here with groovy Telex - Moskow Diskow style percussion and a pulsating bassline. A definite floor-filler!

Fools Gold follows a similar path, this time using the riff from Depeche Mode's Fools. It's incredibly catchy, and with a Bobby O style bassline in the background it drives along perfectly. Tiga obviously loved the Grenoble sound around 2000, as this track has a definite vibe of The Hacker too.

Dancing In Berlin is, sadly, not a remix of the Berlin anthem. It's very boring, with nothing to even write about.

Night Train and Fools Gold are brilliant tracks.
