Biography

Immersed in music since a young age, learning classical piano for 10 years at the Conservatoire, Damien Almira stepped into the heyday of the rave party scene during the 90's. After moving to Paris for journalism studies, he became the Deputy editor-in-chief of Trax Magazine. Meanwhile his Timid Boy project became more serious after he was invited by Ellen Allien to become a resident for the BPitch Control nights in Rex Club. His love for the groove and making people dance did not go unnoticed. After a noteworthy residency, Rex Club gave him the opportunity to run his very own night. Nowadays he is also in charge of a party at Nouveau Casino and is often entrusted by Cercle to close out their parties, notably in the Palace of Fontainebleau after Dubfire and in Château de Chambord after Carl Cox. Lauded by RA where he was featured on mix of the day, the international requests started to come to play at renowned parties such as Panorama Bar, Watergate, Gazgolder, Fuse, D-Edge, Air Tokyo... The busy artist could have had enough there, yet he decided to delve into music production. His records can be found on labels such as Moan, Saved, Roush, Senso, Sci+Tec, Deeperfect... or his acclaimed imprint Time Has Changed (Oxia, Barem, Mihai Popoviciu, Dennis Cruz, Matthias Meyer...). In 2022 Timid Boy has releases on Hoary, Blind Vision Dubs, Cyclic, La Chèvre and on his new vinyl only Almira Records. Since 2020, with his other project Damien Almira, he has been developing with his residency on Tsugi Radio a micro-house, future house, break beat and underground touch, welcoming quality guests such as Molly, Djebali, Ben Vedren, Ramona Yacef... He has signed releases on the latter's label, Lescale Recordings, and on Epice Magique by Frenchman Terence: Terry. The deep musical knowledge that stems from his unparalleled dedication for music is admirable. Damien Almira brings all of this history and much more into his sets, as a truly exceptional persona of today's electronic music scene. linktr.ee/TimidBoy linktr.ee/damienalmira
