In 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…
Anyone 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.
His consistency in the studio has culminated in ‘Wonderlust Bug’; his acclaimed debut artist album with some of the world’s biggest names queuing up to recommend it…
[Sasha] “The Hang Drum track is amazing - as is Release, Wonderlust and Lady Luck and the mixed album flows wonderfully too, keep it up mate”. [Laurent Garnier] “Great work…Great for big room business.” [Timo Maas] “Great album...v trippy and great variety!”. [M.A.N.D.Y.] “Solid collection of tracks. Well done!”
But talk is cheap, action stands out, and Timo comes up trumps again! His latest release on Sharam’s Yoshitoshi imprint recently graced the Beatport top 10 Tech charts for well over three months with many world class DJs citing it in their personal top 10’s too.
2010 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’s calibre that such big names are ready to remix his work and is a pleasant shift from him doing the remixing – his deft touch can be heard on remixes of such luminaries as Leftfield, Justice, DJ Pierre, Louis Vega, 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 15 track ambient album under his new ‘T Mo’ guise.
His infamy has spread among the label bosses who set the trends and create the future-heroes of our worlds. Yoshitoshi, Audio Therapy, Nervous, Dieb Audio, Veryverywrongindeed, NM2, Hotfingers, Cr2 & Toolroom are just some of the world-famous imprints who have clamoured to get a piece of Timo’s brilliance.
It seems incredible that he still has time to DJ around the world and hold down his residency at the globally revered Ministry of Sound club, and this summer saw him play the main stage at London’s biggest Dance music festival ‘South West Four’; 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.
Whether 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.
