Timid Boy Mix

French electronic producer & Dj Damien Almira aka Timid Boy first raised to prominence in 2003, with his Dj residency at the famous Rex Club in Paris for the Ellen Allien’s Bpitch Control parties. His passionate and zestful definition of the deep, hypnotic house & techno sound even seduced Resident Advisor which put his podcast as the Mix Of The Day in January 2011. He is co-owner of the Time Has Changed imprint, along with fellow producer, Acumen.

The label is fast becoming one of the hottest French house labels with key releases and remixes from Oxia, Carlo Lio, Kiki, Alex Celler, Glimpse and Okain; and fantastic supports from electronic luminaries like Richie Hawtin, Luciano, Sven Väth, Dubfire, Laurent Garnier & many more. In summer 2010, the CD compilation Overview mixed by Timid Boy was sold out and repressed in Europe. Since 2009, Timid Boy also release tracks on famous labels as Tuning Spork, Form, Bitten, Great Stuff and Upon.You, to name a few. They often reach the Beatport charts, like his track Chicago Story, which was top 10 in tech house, or his remix for Zoë Xenia, top 10 in deep house.
