How does an artist become well-known? How do they break into a scene that is primarily made up of superstars? Well, in Tim Mason's case, you just have to get those superstars to dig what you're doing! The UK based producer/DJ extraordinaire has certainly hit the ground running this year. With the support of artists like Tiesto, David Guetta and Steve Angello of Swedish House Mafia, Mason has taken the EDM world by storm... and with authority.
Signing to Angello's label, Size Records, Mason has released two singles, "Anima" and "The Moment." Both were incredibly well received and can be heard in clubs all over the world, spun by some of the biggest DJ's on this side of anywhere. What Mason lacks in his amount of original tracks (soon to change), he more than makes up for with a slew of stellar remixes, ranging from the likes of Moby's "After," to RHCP's "Otherside."
With the support of his label and fellow DJs, Mason has embarked on an incredible worldwide tour, playing in four continents in 2012 so far, with no plans to let up. Did I mention he has also began making the festival rounds here in the states? Playing sets at Bounce and coming this summer to Electric Daisy, I'd venture to say that in the next few months, a lot more people will be talking about this fresh-sounding Brit.
For those of you in New York, Mason is headlining Electric Beach @ Santos Party House, this Saturday April 28. George Garcia will also be DJing, so make sure to come check it out! Tickets available here!
Here is Mason's original "Anima" as well as his remix of Moby's "After":
