Premiere: Timid Boy – My Number 3 (Shosho Remix)

Rating: 7.5

Damien Almira, a.k.a Timid Boy, was once the deputy editor of Trax Mag, inviting knowledge and wisdom within electronic music into the abode of his creative mind. In 2003 he began to make himself known as a DJ thanks to a residency at the famous Rex Club in Paris, where he would spin beside names such as Jeff Mills and Seth Troxler.

The French producer has clocked releases on Saved, SCI+TEC and ViVa Music as he strives to perfect his tribal groove. Next up for Timid Boy is an EP release on the Time Has Changed imprint. The three tracker consists of one original song and two remixes from Shosho and DJ Lion & Tomy Wahl.

Shosho’s rendition of ‘My Number 3’ takes the original down a route of “acid laced futuristic house.” Almira’s tribal influence is evident from the beginning as subtle African drum sounds form a tranquil atmosphere. A steady bassline enters the room, alongside acid infused synths, all coming together to create an infectious house groove.

My Number 3 EP is out on Time Has Changed from November 7th.
