Following The Inaugural Crossing Wires Compilation By Toronto Trio My Favorite Robot, Next To Mix It Up For The Exciting Series Is Global Electronic Music Icon Timo Maas. Coupled With An Imminent North American Tour Throughout Cities Including Miami, Austin, Denver, Washington Dc, Montreal And New York, Maas Will Celebrate His Forthcoming Crossing Wires 002 Release.
Still riding high off the success of his latest and greatest full length release, 'Lifer,' back in 2013 (which blended trip hop with ambient, sleazy house with wonky techno, and included collaborations with the likes of Placebo's Brian Molko and Brighton chanteuse Katie Cruel as well as James Lavelle, founder of seminal '90s label Mo Wax) Timo has long been a pioneer in his field. Of course, he also runs his own influential label, Rockets & Ponies. The German producer has also appeared on My Favorite Robot Records before with standout track "Dancing For My Pleasure" from the first 'Crossing Wires 001.'
Timo is also a revered DJ and in 2013 celebrated 10 years as resident at one of underground house and techno's most mythologized clubs: Circo Loco at DC10 out in Ibiza. As such, this new 'Crossing Wires 002' compilation draws on his skills as both selector and sequencer and proves few can do it better than this long-standing talent. The mix features 14 brand new and exclusive tracks from a range of artists old and new - some are closely associated with MFR, some less so, but together they paint a perfect picture of the state of modern electronic music.
