Landing a J Award nomination for Music Video Of The year for his debut track and video ‘Tulips‘ ft. Gill Bates and just announced on Adelaide DJ duties (alongside Jess Kent, Bad//Dreems, Luke Million and Trials) for Matt & Alex’s5 RAVES IN 5 DAYS, Tigerilla continues to make 2016 his launching pad. Today the Adelaide native has released the hip hustling ‘Tulips’ 2.0 rework by enigmatic Sydney-based musician OKENYO. The track features a newly written response and performance from the Elefant Traks signee who recently supported U.S Artist Santigold. Of the powerful female addition by the talented OKENYO, Tigerilla says “Now instead of just one upcoming star, I have two on my track! Very lucky, 2.0!”
The rework follows Tigerilla’s touring exploits with electro-pop poster girl Nicole Millar and Brisbane MC and m8 Gill Bates. Known for producing high-energy live sets, audiences can catch him at EMC: PLAY and Sets On The Beach in Perth, before ringing in the new year at Beyond The Valley Festival.
Directed by Tom Noakes the video for ‘Tulips’ captures the eclectic nature of the single, pitting student and teacher against each other in the ultimate “anti-dance off.” The track was Tigerilla’s debut release on innovative new label Night High Records and EMI, the brainchild of social media mogul Nic Kelly.
A multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, producer and songwriter, Melbourne-based Tigerilla is heavily ingrained in the culture and creative music scene, recently opening new music venue ‘Big Window’ in his Adelaide hometown. With a slew of production and remix credits under his belt that include Allday, Baro and most recently teen dream Mallrat’s Uninvited EP, ‘Tulips’ ft. Gill Bates follows his 2015 offering ‘Difference‘ and a support slot with local dance legend KLP on her national June tour. Don’t miss Tigerilla live as he continues to prove himself as one of 2016’s most exciting new talents.
