Artist Biography

Real Name: Tim Xavier
Genre: Minimal, Techno, House


Tim Xavier's passion for music has kept him on the forefront of techno since his innovative releases on Blueline a decade ago. His career began in Houston in the 90s, and then on to Chicago, Brooklyn and now Berlin, where he has resided since 2007. He is a veteran to the industry; and his dark, edgy production style has remained uncompromised through the ever changing genres of minimal, techno, house and beyond. He is also the owner and chief engineer at Manmade Mastering in Berlin; and this sleepy-eyed coffee addict defines cool as he cuts master plates for many respected record labels.

Tim’s music has been charted and played by leading artists around the world, and he has worked with many labels such as Cocoon, Minus, Sci-Tec, Podium, Timefog, Little Helpers, Sleaze, Droid Behavior and many more. He is also the owner of his own imprint, LTD400, which encompasses his irresistible combination of quirk, funk, space and drive. Tim spray-paints his signature icon on 400 sleeves of each release, a process that he says connects him more closely to his music and audience. He also works with partner Camea on her imprint Clink Recordings, with Tony Rohr as the ‘Afternoon Coffee Boys’, and long time studio friend Par Grindvik. In 2010 Tim is releasing is first full length work on Clink, titled 'Viperfish', with a CD mix project to follow.

On Stage, Tim’s current performances include a mixture of DJing, Live and Effects manipulation, carrying out his vision on two laptops and several midi controllers. He creates an unforgettable experience with his maximal sound quality and music selection, in which he combines loops and pieces from his own production. He is regularly on tour and performing across the globe, capturing his audiences with groovy, driving dance music. Tim's relentless devotion to providing cutting edge audio continues to keep him on the forefront of innovative dance music, and as he continues to grow it is apparent that we have still yet to see the best of his work.
