Timo Maas - First Day
Created by renowned DJ and Germany’s own, Timo Maas, is an electronic pop song, a rock beated groove tune and a star studded effort.
The resident DJ of Hamburg’s Tunnel has recruited Placebo’s Brian Molko for his quirky, sinister yet recognisable vocal talent for the looped chorus as well taking on the relatively unknown JoKate to warble the verses.
Yet, there’s nothing typical in Maas’s dance track here except for the funky danceablity, loops and hooks in an otherwise good Placebo-sounding track. However, as he is such a good DJ, it would be disappointing to hear something predictable, so there is much to be impressed about in this turnabout of what is expected in a dance track.
Expect his debut album, Pictures, out June 13.
