“Tim Healey blows the speakers apart with his trashed out sound, the music is as cutting edge as it can be” DJ MAG (UK)
DJ/producer Tim Healey, the godfather of electro-house, and founder member of genre-busting dance act, Coburn, continues to blaze a trail as tastemaker-extraordinaire in today’s music industry. With killer releases across a slew of labels (from Ultra to Ministry of Sound), awesome bookings and his label Surfer Rosa in its second year.
Surfer Rosa is blazing a sonic trail, sticking to its release remit of all that is cutting edge and electronic. They’ve hit no.1 spots on various portals including Beatport, and have released tracks and mixes by Dirtyloud, Calvertron, Tomcraft, Lutzenkirchen, Wizard, Kidda, Hatiras, Krafty Kuts, Slyde, Mark Instinct, Nom De Strip, Glitter, Hedflux, and Zen Death Squad. Often accompanied by their inimitable videos, they have licensed Surfer Rosa mix packs to SONY, Ministry of Sound, Superstar and others.
Tim’s new LP Rest in beats LP (released June 2011) covers a typically wide canvas of sounds from straight-up club electro-house to sublime chilled beats and bass to critical acclaim, receiving rave reviews across the board (Mixmag, DJ, Clash, Tillate). The album sees Tim collaborating with Calvertron, Top Cat, Atomic Drop, Freq House among others. Even UK Channel 4′s Peep Show character Super Hans (aka Matt King) popped in for the intro.
As a DJ, Tim has toured with and supported artists as diverse as Erick Morillo, The Prodigy and Pendulum and decimated dance-floors at pretty much every major rock festival in the world, from Reading to Fuji Rock, via freak-fests like Burning Man (USA), and Fusion (Germany). Playing his unique blend of ghetto-electro and the highest quality-club sounds, he’s no stranger to super-clubs world-wide, and endlessly tours the globe. If you want to rock an event, look no further.
