Tiga James Sontag (born 1974 in Montreal, Canada) is a Canadian musician, DJ and record producer of electronic dance music. Tiga has released two albums entitled ''Sexor'' and ''Ciao!'' ''Sexor'' won the 2007 Juno Award for Dance Recording of the Year. Tiga released a selection of compilations in the early 2000s, featuring mixes such as ''American Gigolo'', ''DJ-Kicks: Tiga'' and, ''Mixed Emotions'', which put him on the map as one of "the world's best mixers". His most recent compilation mix, ''Tiga Non-Stop'', was released in November 2012, and premiered Tiga’s latest single "Plush." The mix also features tracks from artists such as Kindness, Duke Dumont and Blawan. Tiga has remixed songs from the likes of The xx, LCD Soundsystem, The Kills, Cabaret Voltaire, Scissor Sisters, Peaches, Moby, Depeche Mode, Justice, Friendly Fires and Mylo.

Before embarking on his solo career, Tiga was a key figure in establishing the Montreal rave scene in the early 90s, and created the legendary after-hours club SONA. As a solo artist, Tiga released "Sunglasses at Night" with Finnish producer Jori Hulkkonen (aka Zyntherius). The single reached number 25 in the UK Dance Chart. Other successful chart singles include “Pleasure From The Bass,” “You Gonna Want Me” featuring Jake Shears, and his 2009 release “Shoes,” co-produced with Soulwax and Chilly Gonzales.
