Timo, you’ve passed more than half of your life with headphones around your neck and vrecords in hand, you’ve remixed almost anyone, you’ve produced albums and singles of great success, you’ve played in front of enormous crowds and in the worlds most important clubs. What does someone like await from the future ? What other ambitions do you have ?
There`s a very simple reason, I`m driven by my love to music. It’s my language to speak with people
I got several things running in very diverse directions…the production with Sante Pucello (Santos) is superexiting and openminded and when you have the opportunity working with so talented people like him …it`ll never stop
We know that apart from music, you have a great passion for wine. If you had to compare yourself to a wine, which would you choose ?
Most likely a nice italian Amarone.
You’re a person that’s very close to your family, you always said that your origings are the most important thing. What does it mean being a father and DJ ?
Nothing wrong with it…of course its not that life, what people understand as “normal life”…but by the end of the day its important to be yourself and live it…so do I!
Of course we’re a music magazine, so could you speak to us about “Mutant Clan” ? What musical or artistic concept brought you to start this new project ?
It`s Santos and my wide open experimental field…with collaborations in several directions…we like to invite guests and work on new stuff…doesn`t matter, if dance or pop or avantgarde… We did some records already with Alex Dolby, Monika Kruse and several others…and more to come… There`s some great ideas for projects. I`m pretty sure, u will hear of it soon…
Here in Italy we’re very proud of our own, so we would like to know, how did you relationship with Santos start ? Is it because of his abilities that came to light in the past 2 years, or were you already good friends before ?
We met first time in 2001 on Ibiza…lost contact and met back about 2 years back properly… with the same love for the music…we tried to work together on a project and pretty quickly we decided to stick the heads closer together. Now we live moreorless together on a farm near Hanover in germany, got the studios there and work continuously. He is an amazing producer and even more amazing personality & friend. I`m proud to work with him!
Listening closely (without going into too much detail about the great choice of sounds/instruments), your more recent work, comparing it to your older tracks, it’s impossible to not take note of the rise in quality of the final product, especially if you think of the sounds of “Subtellite” or “Jetstream”. Are we wrong or has something in your studio changed ?
Well ! That’s the reason why I work with Santos. I needed some fresh influence also we have advanced our skills, since we met! Totally openminded And continously do…the fact, that we live close gives us a lot more oppurtunities for experiments… Thanks for saying this…approves, what we think too.
Apart from your mother, in your top myspace friends there is another important figure, Andrea Pelino. What relationship do you have with him and with Circoloco ? You were one of the first artists that became part of the crew. How much did a situation like that influence your career musically ?
Andrea is a very good friend since many years…and Circoloco is my “family”. His sense for quality and perfectly arranged crazyness is unique!
No wonder, many people say Circoloco is the best club in the world. It’s atmosphere is superunique! He also had and has a strong influence on me… He has helped me and my career many times.
