The full EP's out on Friday, complete with more remixes from Slamboree and Rain City Riot

We've got another exclusive track premiere for you today, as iDJ proudly brings you a world-first listen to Tracy Rhodes' remix of Tongue Tied by Tigerlight.

Half British, half Finnish-Swedish, Tigerlight grew up in Brighton and Berlin, though her musical career now sees her travelling all over the world, gigging alongside the likes of Caribou, Dub Pistols, Hot Chip and Todd Terje. As well as being a DJ, producer and vocalist, she is also a successful film music composer, with her credits including Return To Homs, a multiple award-winning documentary about the war in Syria.

Tigerlight's productions to date have graced labels such as Punks, Ministry Of Sound, Never Say Die, Suicide Dub and Bazooka, but Tongue Tied marks the very first release on her own label, Tigerlight Musik. In its original from, Tongue Tied is a slice of uptempo electropop noir with a vocal/rap from Tigerlight herself, but the various remixes on offer push the track into different territory: from the more club-friendly Vocal VIP, to the breakbeat refix from Slamboree, a jackin' house rub from Rain City Riot, and of course our pick today - a somewhat deeper house pass courtesy of Tracy Rhodes, AKA Classic Recordings artist My System Echo.
