Tim Richards

Award winning DJ/Producer Tim Richards has been immersed in dance music for over the past decade and has been working as a fulltime DJ/Producer for over three years now.

Tim has forged his name as a top billing DJ at major nationwide events, as well as being voted ‘Best Producer’ in 2007 and Best Progressive DJ in 2009 at the Nite:Life awards. He hosts a popular club night under the name ‘Signature Sounds’ and also has a weekly radio show under the same branding on George FM.

His efforts have seen him booked as far afield as London, New York, Vancouver, San Francisco, Dublin and more, as well as playing at closer to home events in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney, along with regular guest spots around New Zealand.

Tim’s growing production schedule has begun to pay off with his tracks showing up in the playlist’s of some of the most respected tastemakers in music today. His tracks and remixes have been played by the likes of Funk D’Void, Sasha, Laurent Garnier, John Digweed, Nic Fanciulli, Stephan Bodzin, Steve Lawler, King Unique, Tony Humphries as well as featuring on Pete Tong’s Essential Mix show.

Tim has been asked to remix tracks for Infusion, Magik Johnson, Wamdue Project, P-Money, Fiord, Luke Walker, Antix and Rob Mooney which have all been well received. Tim also has original work out on King Uniques label Curfew.

Tim’s music leans towards the futuristic side of house and tech-house – a sound he was drawn early on with the likes of Massive Attack, Kraftwerk, Jean-Michel Jarre, Peace Division, Kruder & Dorfmeister, Brian Eno, Mark Farina, Portishead, Metro Area, H:foundation, Derrick Carter, Moodymann and more. These artists helped inspire and pave the way for his long held passion for producing music and DJing.

Tim is driven to music as a vocation and a passion, seeking inspiration to produce innovative, addictive tunes to propel him to the head of the pack. Keep your eyes, and ears, on this man.
