Bass Interview #1 : Dion Timmer

Dion Timmer comes straight from Amsterdam, Netherlands, and stands out on the world Dubstep scene thanks partly to his two collabs with Excision and his invitation to the remixes Ep « Excision & The Frim ft. Luciana Remixes « .

Stoner Music got an interview and can tell you a little more ….

 1-Who are you ? Why this choice of stage name ?

I’m Dion Timmer, 16 year- passionate Dutch Electronic Music artist and my name is my real name. 
I did not really have the urge to find myself a nickname.

2- Why did you choose Bass Music, what made you want to become a producer ?

I started listening to artists like Skrillex and Excision about 4-5 years ago, I thought it’d be cool to edit these tracks and make my own versions of them.

I was really young and I didnt really know how to make current sounds so I just cut up the tracks till they sounded like I wanted them to sound, after that I’d just send them to my friends and put them on my mp3 player.

After a while I figured out how to make current sounds in FL Studio, I started making current tracks after that.

3- As a producer, did you invent sounds other than Bass Music sounds ?

I started out making weird Hip Hop beats before I knew how to synthesize my own sounds.

4- What were your goals when you started producing ? Have they changed ?

I’ve always wanted to make a song with someone like Downlink or Excision, which actually happened !

And of course, like almost every young producer/DJ, I dream of playing in front of an enormous crowd, which sadly enough hasn’t happened yet!

5- Who is the artist who inspires you the most ?

Skrillex without hesitation.

6- Are there any French artists you like a lot ?

Well I used to listen to Daft Punk a lot, they introduced me to sampling bits from other tracks to create those Hip Hop beats I was making at the time.

7- What is your feeling about working with Excision ?

I see Excision as one of my best friends and as for « sensei », collaborating with him feels really natural and we always work really fast together.

8- If You could collaborate with an artist of your choice who would it be ?

Probably Skrillex or GTA as I’m absolutely in love with the tunes they’re 
releasing at the moment !

9- Right now, what are your favorite sounds ?

I love the new sounds of GTA, JAUZ and Getter.

But I’m also really digging the new Dr. Dre album that just came out 🙂 .

10- What is your equipment for production, what software did you use ?

I’ve got a computer with FL Studio 12 on it and a pair of Beyerdynamics DT770’s , all you need in my opinion !

11- Do you have any projects, an EP in preparation ?

Can’t say anything yet, but there is something big coming VERY soon …. 😉
