Tim Healey, the brighton based godfather of electro-house returns in style after five years with the upcoming release of highly anticipated album 'Rest In Beats'.
Since his last album, as part of 'Coburn', Tim has founded his second label 'Surfer Rosa' to sit next to the unforgetable 'Giant Pussy'. With names like Bounty Killer, Deekline and Dirtyloud collaborating on the 'Surfer Rosa' endeavour, and tracks sitting in the charts alongside names such as Deadmau5 and David Guetta, Tim hasn't exactly been resting on his laurals.
With a spoken word intro from Matt King, better known drug loving 'Super Hans' from Channel 4 comedy, 'Peep show', and a refreshing cover of the Beatles' track 'Dear Prudence', there's plenty to surprise amongst the 13 track release.
After the single 'Rock It Roll It' hit No.1 on the Beatport bubstep charts, and 'Love it Live It' was snapped up by Sony, there are four videos in the pipeline for other tracks on the album.
The album willl be followed by two tours, 'Tim Healey LIVE', which sees Tim performing with a drummer, VJ and vocalist, and 'Tim Healey Soundsystem', which has Tim DJing with a vocalist/MC.
'Rest In Beats' is set for release in May/June of 2011. Expect a lot.
