Real Name:
Timo Maas
Profile:
German producer, label manager and Dj and remixer born in July 27th 1969.

Maas bought his first set of turntables at the age of 17 and played his very first DJ set in 1982 at a party in his friend's home. In 1992, he started to Dj in the European rave scene, earning a name in the electronic underground world. In more than 30 years of career, Timo has been collaborating with and remixing many artists such as Depeche Mode, Fatboy Slim, Garbage, Jamiroquai, Madonna, Moby, Moloko, Muse, Placebo, Roger Sanchez, Tori Amos, Paul McCartney & Wings (2)

Maas' first record, "The Final XS", was released in 1995. His second record release was a collaboration with another producer, Gary D., "Die Herdplatte", which was a bigger success than his first. Gary D also gained Maas a residency at Hamburg's famous club, The Tunnel, between 1994 and 1996, playing also at the historic Bristol club Lakota. Maas also began to release records through record labels such as Hope Recordings, both under his own name and the alias, Orinoko. Maas has also recorded under many aliases such as Mad Dogs among others together with his friend Leon Alexander. In 2000, Timo Maas had a residency alongside Deep Dish at the New York club, Twilo. Since 2008, Timo runs his own record label Rockets & Ponies, releasing artists such as Wolfgang Haffner, Ricardo Villalobos, Maetrik, Nightmares On Wax and Addison Groove.

Timo Maas first got me into non-commercial dance music with his big-room stormers like "Der Schieber", "Riding on a Storm" and his earlier material. It seemed as if the quality of his releases seemed to slip post-Perfecto though, and I must admit that I haven't been a fan for years. He played NYE in Melbourne in 2002/2003, and that gig sealed his fate in my mind.

Where's the tech Timo?

Timo Maas is just bloody brilliant. An excellent DJ, a fantastic producer, and a really nice bloke. Der Shreiber (I doubt that's the correct spelling) is like someone hitting you over the head with a brick, but in a nice way. All the stuff on 'Loud' is most excellent, especially the relentless progressive pounding of 'Manga', the dodgy breakbeat of 'That's How I've Been Dancing' and the 'what the hell is going on here?' of 'We Are Nothing'. And don't get me started on his remix of Azzido Da Bass's 'Doom's Night'.....
