We felt the time is perfect to reignite our JOOF DJ sessions mix series, this being at a time when there’s a resurgence in the more specialist side of the scene. These mix complications are a perfect platform to showcase some of the best in the new generation of talent that are gracing clubs around the world. We turn to Toronto for our next session to a guy who has become a local hero as well as being one of the most forward thinking producers on this planet that has got the attention of the likes of Guy J and John Digweed.
We welcome to the turntables Tim Penner. There are very few artists that consistently deliver music that redefines the boundaries of creativity and depth, yet Tim continually pushes the limits to create innovative, crowd-pleasing sounds. His work with industry-leaders is a testament to the respect he has earned with countless chart-topping success. His remix of Max Graham’s classic track ‘Airtight’ has been selected as one of Beatport’s Top 10 Best Tracks of 2015 and on top of this incredible achievement, he has been included in countless compilation albums by such legends as Markus Schulz, Paul Oakenfold, and Hernan Cattaneo.
While his studio productions are one of his strongest suits, his live performances are what really allow Tim to stand out. His charisma and energy bring life to audiences around the world while his track selection and presentation are second to none and his ability to blend various genres into a fluid, emotional journey never fail to captivate crowds. Tim’s diverse skill sets provide incredible opportunities to play alongside the best DJs at the best venues… and never ceases to amaze.
Tim’s wide array of talent has also given him the opportunity to opening one of the fastest rising record labels, Slideways Music. Very few labels have earned such immense respect so quickly in the industry. His gift at spotting new talent and incredible music has set this label apart from others and with every release, Slideways consistently impresses DJs and music lovers around the world.
To get to know Tim Penner is like getting to know an old friend. He always brings forth positive vibes and a friendly demeanour on and off the stage. He truly is a refreshing change in the industry and is certainly influencing people with his words of inspiration and, most importantly, his music. Tim is the real deal and is quickly putting his hometown of Toronto on the map.
