An interview with Tim Mason, and win tickets to see him at Pacha.


His 1st release ‘The Moment’ was picked up by Steve Angello and immediately signed to Size, from there it’s been clear that Tim Mason is set for big things.  With remixes of Red Hot Chilli Peppers – “Otherside”, PNAU and Lucid – “I can’t help myself”, all set for release soon, all of which are already getting hammered by the Swedish House Mafia, David Guetta, Tiesto  and more, he’s primed to take London by storm. You can catch him at Nightowl, Pacha, on September 17th…so as such Plain and Simple thought we’d have a quick catch up.

So then introduce yourself for those that don’t know…

Oh, hi there…I’m Tim Mason!

When did you first hear electronic music and what did you like about it?

I was always into electronic music from a young age. I started djing from the age of 13. It was when I heard the Rhythm Masters remix of Todd Terry’s Keep On Jumping, that I was inspired to get into production. In that period I was already learning the piano, so it was quite natural for me to start making my own tracks.

What have been your biggest influences and inspirations?

Influences can come from absolutely anywhere, whether it’s a current producer who I am digging, or digging through my old archives.  They range from anything to DJ Sneak , Jaque La Conte , Armand Van Helden, Daft Punk and many others…too many to mention!

‘The Moment’ was a big hit for you – can you tell us a bit about the track and the thinking behind it?

I wrote ‘The Moment’ in my studio along with a few other different tracks with slightly different sound a year or so ago. I pushed a few of them out and then my manager, who I had recently taken on, he heard The Moment and said he felt it would be perfect for Size. The rest if history!!

What generally are your goals when it comes to writing music?

I don’t really have a goal in particular, I am blessed to be doing a job which I enjoy doing more than anyone could dream of, so it’s all kind of a natural progression as soon as I start work on a track, be it a remix or a Tim Mason track.

How did you hook up with Size records?

Through my Manager, I am very happy and proud to be part of the Size family and looking forward to us causing some serious damage together!

What can people expect at Pacha from you?

I would say my sound is suited to the “main room” perfectly, and naturally, Pacha has one of the best, so expect some VERY big sounds, some new remixes and you will most certainly be hearing my new track. 😉

What’s been your proudest moment so far and why?

There’s been a lot in a very short period!!! Being contacted by the likes of David Guetta, Steve Angello, SHM, PNAU, Lucid etc for remixes is always flattering, and of course joining Size, playing with SHM….again, too many to choose from to pick just one!

Finally, who are you on the daily outside of music?

Outside of music? What’s out there? You’re scaring me now…I’m going back to the studio!
