Tim Andresen has come a long way from his humble beginnings back in 1986. He is the founder and owner of Copenhagen’s highly respected What Happens label and co-owner of the UK-based Savoir Faire Musique.
One to follow his dreams through equal parts of talent and hard work, Tim is an artist who enjoys the writing, production, engineering and arrangement of his own records. His recent production portfolio includes work for Re:FreshYourMind, Younan Music, Ready Mix Records and of course What Happens and Savoir Faire Musique. He has also released on Toolroom and Southern Fried as half part of Professional Losers, dubbed “the next big Danish housers” by iDJ Magazine after personally being asked to remix for Fatboy Slim (entering at #1 on the UK Buzz Chart).
From a background of playing in his hometown to promoting highly successful parties in clubs and warehouses, he gained an enviable following. Music has now taken him to nearly 40 different countries across Europe, Asia and South America, and his sets at historical clubbing institutions including Space, Pacha, Privelegé, Eden, Ministry of Sound, Turnmills, The Egg and Fabric have seen him labelled “Denmark’s finest export”. Ridiculous, yes, but his consistent performances and true dedication to the scene somehow justifies the praise.
Since 2005, he has held an ongoing residency at Culture Box – described by Mixmag as “Copenhagen’s pioneering platform for cultivating electronic music”, and rated by Resident Advisor as “one of Europe’s best small clubs”. Tim’s countless DJ sets have played a key role in helping to secure the club its unique position, achieving worldwide recognition and 6 awards so far for Best Danish Club.
Tim’s musical talents have not gone unnoticed either, and resulted in him landing the “Best DJ” award at Club Awards, and “Most Popular Nordic DJ” by Megamind while also being nominated for Danish DJ Awards on 17 other occasions.
Tim has his fingers in many musical pies and continues to stay at the very forefront of Scandinavian clubbing. He recently became the new partner at Culture Box and manages to juggle his busy schedule full of DJ gigs, club/label activities and music productions.
