Clink Label's Tim Xavier Brings Transatlantic Techno to Grand Central This Friday
Today, the genre is largely a European phenomenon with much of the action revolving around the international EDM capital of Berlin. So it follows that many homegrown American techno artists have migrated there.
Case in point: The Clink label's Tim Xavier.
But for this Texas-born DJ, producer and all-around studio wizard, the move to Berlin was fate, putting him at the epicenter of the transatlantic techno zeitgeist. And there, Xavier's emerged as a much in-demand mastering engineer and "doctor of audio" for top techno labels -- like Wagon Repair, Bpitch Control, and Minus -- literally leaving his sweaty fingerprints on many a beloved release.
Add his own dark, driving techno productions on Clink (not to mention being one-half of Afternoon Coffee Boys with Tony Rohr) and Tim Xavier is making major waves on both sides of the Atlantic.
