Timbo’s Mixtapes on Jazz London Radio

Jazz London Radio unleashes a new DJ to the internet waves. DJ Timbo will play music fusing house, techno, lounge and other forms of electronic music every weekend between 10pm and midnight plus occasionally during weeknights. See Timbo’s bio below

Timbo (Tim Burrell) started DJ’ing in the mid 90’s. He soon started playing warm up sets at London’s legendary ‘The Cross’ nightclub, along with a Saturday night slot at a pirate radio station in North West London. Tim juggled his DJ’ing with a sound engineering career, training in some of London’s top recording and mixing studios. He later moved onto CD Mastering, where he mastered some of the first DJ mix CD’s such as the revered “Journeys By a DJ” series. In 1996 Tim also mastered, DJ’d, and compiled one of the first DJ mix albums from CD using a Sony CD Player with varispeed (well before Pioneer came on the scene). Tim progressed onto vinyl cutting at London’s Townhouse studios where he mastered The Orb’s 1997 album “Orblivion”, Lily Allen’s 2006 debut album “Alright, Still”, and remastered all of Pulp’s back catalogue. Tim has released some of his own creations and remixes under the DON(1) and Yaqui Tribe moniker.   timbo-logo

 Tim’s DJ style has it’s roots in the original house sound of Chicago, the Balearics, and the New York Garage of the early 90’s. Tim will play anything from a 1991 Garage classic to a contemporary Deep or Tech House track. Many of the Deep House records currently released continue to tip their hat to that original Chicago style. Tim uses a combination of Technics SL1210’s and Traktor.
