Mix of the Day: Timo Garcia
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. 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…
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!”
This has been added to with releases on Exploited, Leena, Noir, OFF, Compost, Skint, Southern Fried, Stealth, Yoshitoshi, Nervous, Dieb Audio, Cr2 & Toolroom & even Hed Kandi. It seems incredible that he still has time to DJ around the world as well as working behind the scenes engineering and mixing down many other artists’ projects in his Brighton based studio. 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.
