Timo Garcia (GB)

["DJ","Producer","Engineer\n\nAnyone tapped into the pulse or keeping score of modern electronic music has probably heard of Timo Garcia. Straddling the fine line between underground darling and big room, big tune dance floor arsonist, his numerous releases on the circuit's biggest and best labels has been well documented as he kicks off 2012 ranked number 235 DJ in the world by the weekly Muso global top 1000 DJ poll (2nd January, 12)\n \nIn a world when DJs and producers are ten-a-penny and the hype machines peddle mediocrity as if it were something special, it can be difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff. As such, the currency de jour is consistency & recommendations\u2026\n\nHis consistency in the studio has culminated in \u2018Wonderlust Bug\u2019; his acclaimed debut artist album with some of the world\u2019s biggest names queuing up to recommend it\u2026 \n[Sasha] \u201cThe Hang Drum track is amazing - as is Release, Wonderlust and Lady Luck and the mixed album flows wonderfully too, keep it up mate\u201d. [Laurent Garnier] \u201cGreat work\u2026Great for big room business.\u201d [Timo Maas] \u201cGreat album...v trippy and great variety!\u201d. [M.A.N.D.Y.] \u201cSolid collection of tracks. Well done!\u201d \n\nBut talk is cheap, action stands out, and Timo comes up trumps again! His recent release on Sharam\u2019s Yoshitoshi imprint recently graced the Beatport top 10 Tech charts for well over five months with many world class DJs citing it in their personal top 10\u2019s and Defected featuring it on their In The House Brazil \u201911 compilation.\n\n2010 also saw the release of a double CD, littered with remixes from his album tracks by production heavyweights that include DJ Pierre, Onionz, Eric Kupper and James Harcourt. It is a testament to Timo\u2019s calibre that such big names are ready to remix his work and is a pleasant shift from him doing the remixing \u2013 his deft touch can be heard on remixes of such luminaries as Leftfield, Justice, DJ Pierre, Louis Vega, Robert Owens, Coldcut, Danny Howells and Ian Brown and he is constantly on the lookout for ways to add his inimitable sound to wide-ranging projects including a 14 track ambient album under his new \u2018T_Mo\u2019 guise. \n\nHis infamy has spread among the label bosses who set the trends and create the future-heroes of our worlds. Yoshitoshi, OFF, Compost, Skint, Southern Fried, 303 Lovers, Nervous, Audio Therapy, Dieb Audio, Cr2 & Toolroom are just some of the world-famous imprints who have clamoured to get a piece of Timo\u2019s brilliance. And his recent collaborations with X-Press 2, Jerome Sydenham and DJ Pierre all saw their global release in 2011 too.\n\nIt seems incredible that he still has time to DJ around the world as well as working behind the scenes engineering and mixing down many other artists\u2019 projects in both his London and Brighton based studios. Last summer saw him play the main stage at London\u2019s biggest Dance music festival \u2018South West Four\u2019 as well as headlining festival stages from Brazil to India; but this is a man who has both a dedication and a love for his craft and this is something that he exudes, whether behind the decks or in the studio. \n\nWhether you like your music to be played in the comfort of your own home, in grimy underground sweat-holes, or in extravagant and celebrious locales, the sublime and sensual sounds of Timo Garcia are guaranteed to deliver."]
