about

"Cactus Highrise" is the latest release from Timonkey in his ongoing quest to bring the dreamtime back to the dancefloor.

“A festival sunrise over the beach, forest or desert, a walk in the park, or a glass of wine and a book, Timonkey’s music is the sort of downtempo / chillout music that makes gentle moods, soft vibes and simple moments all the more beautiful. ”
Timonkey
10 years ago, Timonkey climbed a massive Redwood tree that towered above a renegade party in the Santa Cruz mountains.  As the sun rose, he received the inspiration for what has been his mission ever since: to make the best sunrise music ever.  Delivering a proper morning set is a delicate art: the dancers need strong energy to keep going, but they are also craving something different by this point in the experience.  Timonkey is one of the few DJ/Producers who specialize in providing this "something different" that can give a long night of rave and revelry the closing ritual it deserves.

During his years of experience as a DJ/Producer, Timonkey has shared the stage with the likes of Tipper, Vibesquad, Kraddy, Random Rab, as well as Muti Music label mates Ill Gates, Mimosa, and Heyoka.  All name-dropping aside, he has reached the elusive goal of a "signature sound":  chopped vocals, analog keyboards, field recordings and airy textures alongside massive bass and glitched out beats.  Beyond the technical elements, his tracks have an unmistakable vibe all their own: a dreamy, heart-felt quality that makes a delightful treat for party-goers who make it to the dawn.

about

Timonkey Santa Cruz, California

Equally at home hanging from a tree branch or bouncing off concrete, Santa Cruz's Timonkey (Tim Donlou) fuses organic and synthetic elements together in order to bridge the worlds of nature and technology: "Branching patterns, mineral lattices, geological timescapes - the living earth is as much an influence on my music as King Tubby, Bernie Worrell, or Steve Reich ever were." ... more
