Timo Maas

Timo Maas' rise to fame is relatively slow compared to other DJs in the industry. But it doesn't mean he's not good, in fact, he's one of the well respected DJs in Europe. Before he gained international fame, he was part of various clubs in Germany especially in various rave clubs.

Maas started working with the turntable when he was 17 years old. His first experience in public performance was in fact in a party. He eventually started in various clubs in early 80s but his focus was in Top40. His dedication to pure techno only started in the late 80s.

The 90s were very important to Maas' career because he learned rave in the early years of the 90s. He dedicated himself to this type of music for years and slowly became a recognized DJ for rave especially in underground music. He eventually released his first album in 1995 but it was not well received. Fortunately, he was able to immediately follow it up with the record Die Herdplatte. This led him to various gigs in Germany especially in The Tunnel which is a premier club in Hamburg.

His international recognition started when he released a remix of Doom's Night. With another album following the single, he was able to capture the listener's preferences.

Many of Timo Maas works became part of soundtracks. His remake of "To Get Down" was part of the Italian Job film. He has also a track in FIFA Football video game in 2003 and in the The Sims 2: Nightlife, his music was infused in the actual game.
