London based artist Steffie TIMANTI has been a bubbling figure on the underground dance scene for a minute now.
A familiar face at Ibiza’s Cafe Del Mar and DC10, TIMANTI is also a regular at festivals like The Secret Garden Party, Gottwood, Lovebox and Bestival, and can always be found residing somewhere within London’s club circuit.
Fluid and liberated from genre limitation, her sets often traverse across ambient, trial and ethnic rhythms. Making her production debut in 2014 with a four-track EP on Niwax, TIMANTI now runs the Tribelife collective, an experimental collaborative community project that nurtures various art projects and providing a supportive network for young pioneering creatives from all corners of the globe.
Welcoming her to our mix series, TIMANTI steps up with a fiery blend of techno, house and twitchy bass explorations, drawing heat from the productions of Midland, Brame & Hamo, Waal and her of course her own palette. Check below.
