Tim Sweeney

BiS premieres Tornado Wallace track

19 June 2013

Signing to New York based Beats in Space, Australian producer Tornado Wallace (aka Lewie Day) presents Desperate Pleasures. Also home to LA’s Secret Circuit, the label released the 12-inch on June 18 and DJ/BiS-founder Tim Sweeney premiered it on air, which you can see below.

Featuring three tracks from the veteran producer, artwork by Californian artist Steven Harrington and and a tri-colored, Day-Glo splattered vinyl, the record is not only a collector’s fantasy but reflects the oxymoronically cosmic grounding of Day’s kraut, post punk and house influences. Brooklyn’s Will Work For Good, who design for a range of independent labels, including RVNG Intl, was also in charge of the packaging. See the new video below and the Beats in Space website for more details. **

Parfait Tirage

24 September 2011

I used to lock myself up with my best mate and a few beers (and cigarettes and..) and listen to the big bombs some young guy from NYC used to play on his mini program BIS back when Daft Punk released their 2nd album. It has become so much more since then…

If you haven’t heard about Tim Sweeney maybe you should reconsider your life, and its existence. If you do well… you’re gonna rejoice knowing his BIS is now a record label too…

He may not be the best DJ at school (certainly not), but he’s got one delicate amazing taste very few can match. After 12 years of bringing the best “Beats in Space” each Tuesday night when taking control of the room beneath the freshmen dormitory on the New York University campus Tim sees a few dreams come true…

A great Beats in Space 12th Anniversary Festival this next Sunday… in the outdoor lot across the street from the Music Hall of Williamsburg.

But mainly and above all the launch of his own label, Beats in Space Records with a debut release for both band and label of Parisian duo Paradis’  “Parfait Tirage & La Ballade de Jim” 12″.

And because  it has become some sort of trend uploading tracks as videos on vimeo (with a playing vinyl of course) rather than soundcloud or any other embeddable music player… Tim Sweeney couldn’t be or do less.
