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 …. 😉
Listen « Plug Me In » de Dion Timmer !
BASS IS LIFE, BASS FOR LIFE
