Hello, I’m The Colonel

Tim’s love of music has been a part of his life since listening to endless Barry White and The Average White Band at an early age with his Dad and catching the tail end of punk, but something clicked one night when he visited The Shoom Club in 1987 right at the beginning of the Acid House movement.

He was soon out clubbing all round the UK and abroad, absorbing the music and culture, djing, running his own club nights as well as working for 10 Records as a junior A@R manager, famous for Soul 2 Soul and Inner City and went on to join the Virgin Record label to set up the dance division before deciding to set up one of the early UK house labels called Tomato Records.

Although Tim took a career move from 1994 to become a chef and run a catering events company, music has never left him. Spending more time at parties in the kitchen rather on the dance floor, he has always had an ear out for what the dj plays and has always been surprised how average so many dj’s are killing the vibe of the party so a few years ago he invested in some equipment and has been playing at parties and weddings ever since.

Often over looked, a good dj can make or break a party and that’s where Tim has the knowledge and ability to know what tunes to play to keep the dance floor full all night, blending disco classics, new tunes and of course a bit of cheese, but always with a groove, soul and plenty of funk.
