Black Tiger Sex Machine is made up of three electronic producers hailing from Montreal, Canada.  Julian Maranda, Marc Chagnon, and Patrick Barry are the men behind the masks who have escalated to stardom via their heavy, post-apocalyptic, rock-influenced sound.  These tigers are also known for their insane, energetic live sets that have never fail to have the entire audience chanting "BTSM! BTSM! BTSM!".

This group has also founded their own independent label called Kannibalen Records, which has signed names including Dabin, Kai Wachi, Apashe, and Snails.  These sound pioneers have brought you some of your favorite tracks such as "Hell Motel", "Lions" with YOOKiE, and "Madness" with Sullivan King off of their upcoming album, New Worlds.

This week, the trio is debuting two new singles in preparation of their newest album which will be released on Friday.  On Wednesday, "Artificial Intelligence" was introduced via Youtube, SoundCloud, and iTunes.  This song starts out slow with trance-like synths before dropping into a dark and dirty chorus.  This song is a little slower paced than a majority of their songs, but it still does a stellar job of showcasing their signature sound.  For the second drop,  lighter violin tones accompany the futuristic tone which gives it a brighter feel.  Don't be fooled though, this song is still perfect for headbanging.
