Off The Record: Timid Boy – My Number 3 EP
Artist: Timid Boy
EP: My Number 3
Release: OUT NOW!
Label: Time Has Changed
The French producer who also release on Saved, SCI + TEC and VIVa has a big tribal groove and pop leaning sense of melody to his sound and here he gets remixed by new Balkan talent Shosho and DJ Lion & Tomy Wahl who will be next up on the label with their own EP.
“My Number 3” is the original tune and is an eight minute opus of lithe house grooves. Pained synths stretch out above driving drums and icy hi hats add scale. It is an impactful track to drop in the peak of the night and it will always standout.
The Shosho remix takes the track down a deep and acid laced futuristic house path that is littered with emotive vocals and killer synths and bass.
What inspired you for this release?
« My Number 3 » is a private “joke” to name my girlfriend. Its a song for her. There is something about love here. The beautiful melody, a bit drama, full of emotions. Musically, i wanna combine a solid groove , a big dance baseline with a ethnic pop atmosphere, a psychedelic mood. Its like put Alt-J on a rave dancefloor.
How does these upcoming months look for you?
After a very busy summer (i played a lot, New-York, Berlin, Barcelona, Geneva, Odessa, Geneva… my own nights @ Rex Club…), I will focus on new release works for labels as Saved, Material, Form, my own label Time Has Changed also. I have to work on 2017 also : we gonna celebrate our 10 years and a lot of events will arrive around it !
