Timid Boy [Time has changed / Tuning Spork]
Discovered in 2003 through DJ residency at Rex Club for the BPitch Control parties, Timid Boy, aka Damien Almira, quickly established himself as one of the greats of the Parisian scene. Booked to play alongside some of the scene’s giants, (Jeff Mills, Ellen Allien, Booka Shade, Tiga, Francois K, to name but a few…), the French DJ’s sets evolve between dynamic minimal house and deep hypnotic techno. Timid Boy is also a very well known French musical journalist who, for the last decade, has written articles for famous magazines such as Rock&Folk, Technikart and Trax. In 2009 he released the “Split EP”, ”Where is the Bang Bang EP” and later on 12’’ “La Nuit” gaining strong support from: Loco Dice, Dubfire, Hawtin, Chloé, Livio & Roby, Julien Chaptal along the way. His dancefloor orientated and hypnotic style has also seduced the Spanish house crew from Circo Loco / DC 10 eventually leading to residents Tania Vulcano and Andrew Grant snapping him up for their labels Isgud and Barraca.
