Tim has been a dj and performer since 1985 working originally with the Utah Saints
, who gave him his first break. Then regularly worldwide but particularly at Back to Basics (UK), Cream
(UK), Fabric (UK), AKA/The End (UK) HQ/Spirit (Dublin), Space (Ibiza) and along with Steve Lawler
he was the weekly resident at Home in London's Leicester Square. He was the first dj to play officially at Glastonbury and then onto all other UK festivals and has done since at every one, every year. He is the dj of choice for industry events and his band Dope Smugglaz have been number one in the UK dance charts and one of the few acts to cross the tightly policed commercial/underground boundaries. His essential mix for Radio One during his Dope Smugglaz period gained the most enquires ever to reach essential mix producers Wise Buddah at that time.
As a remixer he has provided electronic revisions for Moloko, New Order, Talvin Singh, The Beach Boys, Jon Carter
, the Human League, Brand New Heavies and Arthur Baker to name only a few.
His non-electronic ventures are too long to list but significantly he started Kiss FM Radio for the North of England, a box office breaking exhibition at Leeds City Art Gallery and has been a reasonably successful actor and media pundit. He has been a radio broadcaster for Kiss and Radio One and a television presenter for MTV. He recently started an anti-war campaign on the internet which spanned the music industry and beyond, gaining over a thousand participants and led to a boycott of the Miami Winter Music conference in protest. He is still politically active.
He is the first new resident for Manumission since Smokin Jo
was taken on board 5 years ago and the first DJ ever they have flown in weekly. Along with Har Mar Superstar he hosted 'The Music Box' for Manumission and played back to back with the legendary Alfredo
on the Space Terrace weekly. Danny Tenaglia, Smokin Jo
and Junior Sanchez
also played back to back with Tim again this summer. It is believed Tim is the only DJ to have played back to back with Tenaglia. New Stars like Audio Bully's, The Rapture, Fat Truckers, Ewan Pearson
, Blackstrobe, Justin Robertson
, Jaques Lu Cont and DJ's Not Rockstars also joined Tim on the decks in Ibiza and he also enjoys a great relationship with Bora Bora (Ibiza). In Partnership with GoingGreen, Pioneer, Vestax, Shure and JBL he designed and operated his 'Underground 2003' mobile sound system at various locations in Ibiza with particular emphasis on the DC10 closing after party in Can Tomas which has now passed into legend.
Tim is first and foremost a producer and musician and plays several instruments but finds his true home is in the studio. He has started the label 'Saville Row' with DJs Jon Carter
and Dave Chambers to critical acclaim and has many releases forthcoming as well as his recent work with Arthur Baker. Several releases are scheduled for 2004/5. He writes freelance for most music publications, JACK magazine and every issue for 'Jockey Slut
