Timo Maas

There has been quite a bit of hype surrounding Timo Maas lately and if you haven't checked out one of his live sets, Connected is an perfect chance to do so. Maas, originally known for his 100+ releases as a producer, is recently in the limelight for what he calls a "wet 'n hard" DJ style. Whatever that means, he undoubtedly has a talent for mixing a number of infectious styles into his mixes. It's this refreshing element that will let Maas surpass his peers, mixing tracks like his vocal rework of Placebo's "Special K" into the more progressive sound of the Moguai mix of Orinoko's "Island." Why the tracks on Connected may not be the most original, there are still some wicked numbers including his own cut-up remix of Fatboy Slim's "Star 69" and the hard hitting "Can Dance" by Pascal F.E.O.S. It will be interesting to see how his varied interest in styles will pan out when he releases his debut album later this year.
