The Canadian DJ and producer posted a refreshingly honest and open piece on his social media, detailing the struggle for DJ's to constantly play a stellar set. 

Speaking retrospectively follolwing a gig in Rome, Tiga spoke about how it is not uncommon for DJs to experience 'off' nights, but that no one will admit or speak about it. 

In a long winded apology to his fans in Rome he said, ""Here's something nobody talks about; how about when you DONT kill it. How about when you are what is actually wrong with the party."

He goes on to touch on many factors that can affect the quality of a set such as lazy programming, not understanding the crowd and simply not having that magic that you might usually have. 

"Your programming is lazy, your decisions are Ill-informed, you vacillate between confidence and cluelessness. Your records sound slow. You can't maintain a connection. The center cannot hold. You summon up arrogance to bolster your position. THEY obviously don't get it. Those "people" out there."

Following the post, fans and fellow artists alike flocked to give their outspoken support and praise the DJ for his honesty and courage. 

Peers such as Dubfire, Scuba, The Black Madonna, Disclosure and Eats Everything applauded Tiga on his integrity with Cassius describing him as 'the guy that separates the men from the boys'.
