TiM aka theimagination is a cool cat, we met at the WMC in Miami in 2007. Lately he has been a busy dude, creating beats and melodies in his former electro funk duo group Four Track Minds and working on his upcoming solo project Movements to be released in the fall.
Bio from the Myspace page:
TiM is graph designer, music composer and educator. Influenced by artists of a wide range from Allen Ginsberg to Dr. Dre, Sonic Youth to The Ramones, Kraftwerk and Lee Scratch Perry to Sizzla, TiM’s mission is to express musical beautifulness and to extend the legacy. TiMs percussion laden electronic-funk induced creations show his influences reach far beyond the ones stated above. Some would describe his music as electronica or soulful experimental movements with various artists on vocals. TiMs first hand in production was with a Chicago-based group known as BRIO. As an observer and occasional beat contributor, TiM began learning from the varied styles of funk, broken beats and dance electronic tracks from DJ Steve Maestro in Chicago and appreciate the styles of other composers around the globe.
Making a home in Brooklyn, NY and Los Angeles, TiM is currently working with other artists on experimental projects whenever the opportunity arises. For more information or inquiries regarding music production/ beats/ sound design, email firstname.lastname@example.org
