in Busy P's words:
A few weeks ago, we were touring Australia for Parklife. TIGA was
closing our stage every night, in front of 10,000 kids ready to rumble
with him, to get wrestled to the ground.
And, as usual, he throws out his secret weapon, "TALK TO ME". The
crowd explodes. That’s when I ran onstage screaming, "T-Dawg, what's
The only reply I got was a big, creepy grin... Merci!
One late night, on the narrow streets of Melbourne, TIGA and I went
out for a little boogie with the Bang Gang squad. Our Aussie friends
know how to look after us. We spent the night at Sorry Grandma!, the
hottest club in town, drinking Rave Juice and trying to understand drunk
Aussies’ sub-English accents.
I knew it was the perfect time to ask TIGA about that insane track he
was playing. Ask a drunk man something and you'll get everything you
"HEY TODAY!" he said. "Wait, the German guys responsible for "If I

"Can I have another Rave Juice, P?" he replied to my reply. Nice.
Anyway, I now knew it was some Germans who did that Herbie
I never gave up. We were back from OZ, me in Paris, TIGA in Montreal,
iChatting like we often do. And that little "Transfarts" window pops up
on my screen!
"TALK TO ME" became the highlight of my DJ set, the moment where you
see stars in the eyes of the crowd’s head. Not only it is my favorite
track of 2010, I even had the chance to remix it!
What the hell can you do with such a monster tune? Make something
harder? Impossible. Make something better? Not possible. Make something
faster? The opposite of possible. Make something stronger? The train has
pulled out of Possibility Town. I wanted something deeper, more mental,
bringing two worlds together, Detroit and Rotterdam.
HEY TODAY!'s new single "TALK TO ME." Have fun with it.
