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 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.
