We pick up the tale of Taimur in '99 when the Pakistani born youth set sail from his childhood home of Abu Dhabi, bound for freedom's shores… arriving in NYC an innocent lad, he came upon the infamously debaucherous club Twilo, and well… fill in the rest yourself… Taimur went out and bought turntables... started to gig… then to throw parties… received formative mentoring from UK veteran Craig Richards... got a job in a record shop… became host of an internet radio show… and now after 1001 nights of music, epic struggles and heroic dedication, Taimur is just now triumphantly entering your consciousness as a true force to be reckoned with… or at least a key player who has made an indelible mark on NYC's Techno scene; which, in the city that never sleeps, is certainly something.
