TIM GREEN

Subtract Stage  |  Sunday | 7:00pm - 8:00pm

What can we really say about Tim Green? Besides that his DJ sets seem to levitate the dance floor, and his productions are some of the biggest dance music records of the past few years. That's a pretty good start, wouldn't you say? It might be Tim's first time playing the festival, but he's no stranger to the vibes we are all about!


Biography

With a decorated past and an extensive list of achievements, Tim Green has maintained a high level of accomplishments since the mid-2000s. An artist who is deeply dedicated to expressing his truest sound, Tim’s depth of experience, innate musicality and hard work lie at the heart of his formidable success. In recent years, his affiliation with the All Day I Dream family, including close ally Sébastien Léger, and embracing the melodic sound, has triggered an unparalleled period of creativity and self-satisfaction. The success he has experienced throughout his career hasn’t been without its ups and downs, but, like any journey worth taking, the path to glory and inner happiness was meant to be that way. Through his high work ethic and natural born talent, Tim Green has reached new levels of creative maturity and freedom… with so much more to come.

Tim’s musical ability is inherent, it’s in his DNA. His father is a keyboard player and he started taking guitar lessons at the age of eight, so it’s always been there. Growing up in a musical household, surrounded by a variety of sounds and influences, imbued Tim’s mind with a broad range of inspiration. His love affair with electronic music began with Daft Punk’s classic Discovery LP, which sparked a shift from live music in bands to DJing and studio production. Since his first release in 2006, Tim has utilised his skills to cultivate a diverse discography, from techno with labels like Cocoon, where he was a mainstay, to dancefloor-ready house for Dirtybird. Along the way he’s released an album Her Future Ghost (Cocoon), produced an impressive and diverse set of remixes for the likes of Underworld, Paul McCartney, Ben Bohmer, Friendly Fires, Eelke Kleijn, Perry Farrel, Sébastien Léger, Cassius, Seth Troxler and Lee Burridge, and written alternative pop material under his alias Invisible Minds. 

Amid all the success, Tim has been working towards uncovering his true sound. Occasional feelings of discontent sparked a desire to experiment. In 2016 came a key release on Get Weird, entitled ‘For A Memory’. The track, 11 minutes of deep, exquisitely produced melodic house, helped lay the groundwork for what has become Tim’s signature sound - with depth, emotion and musicality at the heart of his creativity. Along with his 2018 album Her Future Ghost, ‘For A Memory’ was pivotal to his progression into the Tim Green of today. These releases were part of his continual push to find a sound that he was comfortable with, and the catalyst behind his gradual shift into the melodic domain. Through exploring this emotive sound, finding his groove and entering a place of comfort with his creativity, Tim has found the freedom that so many artists yearn for. 

A longstanding friendship with Lee Burridge (who supported Tim’s music in his sets, right from his first ever release in 2006), also played a part in Tim’s development. His musicality has always been there, from his genetic makeup, to playing in bands, to his diverse back catalogue. Building upon the foundations laid down by ‘For A Memory’, in 2018 Tim found himself in the studio creating brand new tracks that simply gave him a good feeling, no agenda, just free flowing uplifting jams. He sent them to Lee, who instantly approved, and so began his connection with All Day I Dream. In March 2020 he dropped his first release on ADID, the seminal Vacation To Life. This was followed by the Moho EP with Sébastien Léger, which helped to further establish Tim’s prowess. 

Since 2020, he has released another two EPs with All Day I Dream - The Moss and The Night Is Blue, plus an album, Eastbound Silhouette. His global touring schedule continues to be packed, taking him from the US, to South America, across Asia and Europe and back again. At every stopoff he encounters crowds who are open to his sound, driven by love, connection and living life to the fullest. When he’s at home being a family man, or spending time in the studio, that good energy continues to emanate cultivating a sense of comfort and inner contentment. 

Almost 20 years since he first made a name for himself, Tim Green is busier than ever, touring the world and entering the most creatively enriching and fertile period of his career. He’s brimming with positivity, from the tunes he makes, to what he plays, and the response from the people on the dance floor. The emotive, uplifting nature of his tracks has a deep resonance with those who experience it, leading to a constant flow of positive feedback. A dream for Tim, who’s fully enjoying the ride, and it shows in the music and his demeanour when he is performing. It’s become a positive feedback loop, where the energy he receives feeds into the music he produces, evoking more positivity on the dancefloor, which radiates back to him, and on it goes.

Maintaining a full-time music career is complicated, there’s no blueprint for success and inner peace. Fortunately, Tim Green put the work in, kept striving, and discovered his authentic truth. Now driven by the powerful impact of his positive feedback loop, he is relishing the chance to express his musicality for himself, and melodic house lovers all over the world. All the while, he remains humble and full of gratitude for the gift of music…
