Special guest Tim Xavier joins Tronic

 For our Spring Pledge Drive show I will be joined by a very special guest - Tim Xavier!

Tim Xavier bio:

Tim Xavier’s passion for music has kept him on the forefront of techno since his innovative releases a decade ago on Blueline. His incomparable, diverse production has transcended through the maturation of alternative dance music, and his dark, edgy sound has somehow remained in tact through his evolution. His current minimal/techno hybrid sound is featured on labels like Clink, Limited400 and Cocoon. He is the owner and chief engineer at Manmade Mastering in Berlin, and this sleepy-eyed coffee addict defines cool as he cuts master plates for many respected labels such as Spectral Sound, Wagon Repair, Minus, Mobilee, and B-Pitch.
