TIP005 Tim Andresen

Producer, Remixer, DJ, promoter and label owner Tim Andresen has his fingers in many pies and his list of accolades is longer than your arm.

He is the founder of ‘What Happens’ and his label is now home to some of the finest talents in underground house music and a whole string of his own productions and remixes.

One to follow his dreams through equal parts of talent and hard work, Tim is an artist who enjoys the writing, production, engineering and arrangement of his own records. He recently boosted his production portfolio with signings to Savoir Faire Musique, Soulman Music, UM Records, Elevation Recordings, Seamless, Natural Rhythm, Starlight Unlimited and DeepWit. It seems a long time since he released on the UK’s longest running house label Azuli but also on Toolroom as one of the “Leaders of the new school” and Southern Fried as half part of Professional Losers being dubbed “the next big Danish housers” by IDJ. For the last decade he has not only seen his name appear regularly in the charts but also had support from the who’s who of house music including underground luminaries like Steve Lawler, Dubfire, Nic Fanciulli, Laurent Garnier, Nick Warren and Hernan Cattaneo through to long term legends like Pete Tong, Erick Morillo, Roger Sanchez and dance music’s biggest superstar Fatboy Slim whom he was also personally asked to remix (#1 UK Buzz Chart). Add to that he did compilation CDs while record sales were still something to talk about. He debuted with a CD showcasing the sound of his first major club project Flow. Then Ministry of Sound asked him to mix and compile volume 1 of Ministry Sessions. They described him “Denmark’s busiest house DJ” and that later led on to playing the MoS tour.

These days see DJs come and go but Tim remains at the very frontline of the Scandinavian club scene. Throughout his DJ career he has never stopped playing his trademark sound and never sold his soul to the latest trend in a desperate and disrespectful hunt for fame. As one of just a few DJs out of Denmark with truly international reach, he has taken his music to 35 different countries playing some of the finest clubs on the planet including the legendary terrace at Space Ibiza, Pacha, the world’s biggest club Privelegé, Ministry Of Sound and Fabric that labelled him “Denmark’s finest export”. At home ground he is the main resident at Culture Box, one of the most sought after positions for DJs in all of Denmark. Month in month out, he plays next to the coolest and most high profile DJs on earth, helping to secure the club it’s unique position with worldwide recognition and 5 awards for Best Danish Club. 2012 saw him responsible for bringing Maya Jane Coles, Nic Fanciulli, Nick Curly, Shonky, Nick Warren and many more to the Danish capital. Before that he took care of his monthly Oven Ready night at Vega nightclub, rated one of the best club nights ever to take place in Copenhagen and described “one of the best Friday nights in the world” by Mark Knight. His long-spanning career includes an endless list of other residencies with awards won for “Best DJ” at Club Awards and “Most Popular Nordic DJ” by Megamind. To sum it up, very few DJs can claim to have had a greater impact on their local club history than him.

Never one to rest on the laurels, Tim will continue to spread his sound far and wide. Wearing his many hats, he keeps pushing the scene forward.
