Biography of Tim Green
|Moniker(s) / ||TG|
Prepossessing the ability to effortlessly manoeuvre through the realms of house and techno, Tim Green has constantly experimented across the spectrum of electronic music. Whether putting out reverberating minimal techno, lush and warm deep house, or sprinkling some of that unmistakable TG charm over productions of popular appeal, his work is stamped by ingenuity, fearlessness and fun. The quality level of his productions resulted in him landing the coveted ‘Best Breakthrough Producer’ award at DJ Mag’s Best of British ceremony in 2010.
Tim burst onto the scene back in 2008 with modern classics - ‘Revox’ and ‘Mr Dry’ which were snapped up by highly revered Dirtybird and Trapez Records labels. The records picked up support from top players such as Pete Tong, Sven Vath, Richie Hawtin and Luciano along the way and Tim swiftly catapulted himself into the upper echelons of the techno hierarchy. Countless high profile releases have followed since on labels such as Cocoon, Get Physical, Saved, Four:Twenty, and his skills as a remixer have seen him turn his hand to an increasingly impressive cast, which includes Friendly Fires, Cassius, Booka Shade, Claude VonStroke and Seth Troxler to name a few.
2013 has been a particularly stellar year for Tim as he launched his brand new label Disc Over Music in September with his gargantuan ‘Just People’ single which was played all over Ibiza by the likes of Marco Carola, Solomun, MANDY & Davide Squillace. With further releases lined up coming from his close friends and colleagues such as Luca Lozano, Nicson & Anthony Reber the futures is bright for the fledgling label. The Disc Over label night also launched this year with Dixon headlining @ The Tunnel – a Napoleonic fortress which Disc Over use exclusively and which was the previous home to Tim’s infamous Bedlam parties which he ran for 4 years.
Tim also found the time to write the summer hit ‘Halftone’ which was released on Get Physical Music and reached the beatport top10 in July as well as his new EP for long time collaborators Cocoon Recordings, which gets released in December. He has also been busy remixing Timo Maas’ vocal anthem Articulation, Sid Le Rock’s ‘Nomad Single for the hotly tipped MFR label in Toronto and Sven Tasnadi’s ‘Thank You’.
With his idiosyncratic groove and off-kilter cheekiness, his sound has seen him tour every corner of the globe over the past 5 years as a DJ. He is a regular for the likes of Womb Tokyo, Fabric London, Watergate Berlin, Mint Club Leeds, Space Ibiza, Hive Zurich, Circus Liverpool, Jaegar Oslo, Musika Edinburgh, Electric Pickle Miami, Public Works San Francisco, Spy Bar Chicago, D-Edge Sao Paulo and many more. 2013 also saw Tim launch his very first live show, with the world premier @ SW4 Festival in London. The show contains live vocals, lots of exclusive edits and new material all put together on the fly.
2014 looks set to be Tims biggest year to date with new singles confirmed for My Favorite Robot & Get Physical in the first quarter of 2014, a slew of high profile remixes as well as the launch of an exciting new band project which Tim has been working on for the past 3 years. Add to that a continuing tour schedule that sees him play some of the premier clubs around the world both as a DJ and a live act it’s a wonder there are enough hours in the day to keep up with Tim’s ever evolving career.
