Timecop1983 is a Dutch producer from Gemert, Noord Brabant. His music is heavily inspired by music from the ‘80s and is best described as romantic, cinematic and dreamy. There are many names for the genre but he always likes to label it as Synthwave or Dreamwave.
Amongst producers like “Carpenter Brut”, “Power Glove” and other more aggressive ’80s inspired musicians he stands out by creating mainly romantic music that takes you back to the time of Back to the Future, Power Rock Ballads and hanging out at the mall with your friends while looking at girls in hotpants and neon clothes.
He has been making music since he was 12 years old and started making music with Scream Tracker in MS DOS on a 386 computer without any musical background. After a long time of learning how to make music by himself he could finally come up with his own songs and he started making all kinds of music, ranging from gabber to classical music.
After years of exploring his taste Timecop1983 decided to fully focus on 80’s inspired music. Especially the kind that creates a nostalgic/romantic feeling. His style is dreamy and emotional with modern/ambient influences and he is often praised for his uniqueness within the, still growing, “New Retro Wave” culture.
Since the release of his debut album “Childhood Memories” in February 2014 he has been anything but unproductive with 3 albums and 4 EP’s to his name. In 2016 he also started live gigging and he has done several (international) performances. In his live performance he likes to combine his more upbeat/danceable tracks with his dreamy works.
His music has been featured in various (short) films and commercials and at the moment he is working on music for the videogame “Crossing Souls” by Fourattic (published by Devolver Digital), soundtracking for a film, starting a new side-project called Division and many many other things. Read more
