Mix Of The Day: Exclusive Tim Paris Mix
In further exciting album news for 2014 a short while back we revealed that March would be marking the release of the hot anticipated debut album of Paris-born London resident Tim Paris. Currently best known as one half of It’s a Fine Line alongside scene luminary Ivan Smagghe, and as a respected underground figure in his own right with releases on leading labels including Young Turks, Kompakt, Moshi Moshi, PIAS, Items&Things, Soma, F Communications, Souvenir and Eskimo it’s fair to say the announcement he’d be dropping a full length album this year was greeted with a fair amount of excitement here at DT towers.
Entitled ‘Dancers’ the release follows an illustrious career as a DJ, producer, musician and owner of the esteemed Marketing Music imprint, ‘Dancers’ is being billed as demonstrating Paris’ skill as more than simply the manufacturer of dancefloor numbers with album crossing genres with the tracklist being “populated by fully-developed songs that effortlessly merge synth pop, proper indie, new wave, post punk, disco, house and electronica into a shimmering and seductive whole.”
A highly-collaborative affair, ‘Dancers’ features a host of guests, including Ben Shemie from the Secretly Canadian band SUUNS, Georg Levin (one half of Wahoo with DT favorite Dixon), and the fabulously monikered Sex Judas (with whom Tim has been a fellow roster member of the Marketing Music imprint) the album seems sure to make waves upon its release on My Favorite Robot. Now, to celebrate its release, the incoming The Rain EP on My Favourite Robot Records and a date as one half of Fine Line with Ivan Smagghe at London’s Smoke Signal on April 11th we thought we’d secure an exclusive mix from Tim to get you in the mood for the weekend early.
