Biografie Timo Maas
Timo Maas has certainly been busy over the last three years, he's produced and remixed more than 85 tracks, including classics like Orinoko's Mama Konda and his snarling snare-driven mix of Doom's Night by Azzido Da Bass.
That's on top of his round the world DJ bookings, prolific he may be, but creatively spent Timo Maas isnt.
Indeed if you've set foot inside a niterie recently, the chances are you'll have got down to one of Timo's percussive productions - as well as Hope Recordings and current label Perfecto, he's also recorded for Hooj Choons, FFRR and Bush.
Timo's residency at The Tunnel, Hamburg (1994-96), marked his breakthrough. Producing the aggressive trance record Die Herdplatte with resident DJ Gary D, the track won him universal acclaim, and led to his current involvement with Bristol-based Hope Recordings.
Soon he was booked everywhere from Lakota in Bristol to Energy Parade in Switzerland and has since gone on to DJ everywhere from Germany's Love Parade to London's Turnmills and Chicago's Karma.
Yet it was the genre defining Mama Konda recorded in 1997 at Time Tools Studios under the incarnation Orinoko, that caused the biggest stir in the dance fraternity. A standard in the boxes of every DJ from Morales to Sasha, Mama Konda was a percussive floorslayer that cemented Timo's reputation as the hottest kid on the block, reaching the Top 20 in both UK and US club charts.
