The Tantra single is taken from Timo's newest LP - 'Lifer', which is his first studio album in several years. The original version is a great slice of deep house / minimal techno with a great melody. The EP and LP are released by Rockets and Ponies - the label Timo runs with fellow producer Santos.
In addition to the great original version, there are remixes of 'Tantra' by Tom Demac, James Teej, Atelier Francesco and Wolfgang Haffner. The Tom Demac mix is deeper with a little beefier bassline. The James Teej mixes have a vibe that is similar to the original version, with the vocal version having James add his own original lyrics to the song. The Atelier Francesco version builds slowly into a great minimal techno groove, after the breakdown, it builds back up again and returns with more energy. The EP wraps up with the remix from Wolfgang Haffner. This version is a unique downtempo take on the song, bringing even more emotion to it. Wolfgang Haffner is an ECHO music award-winning German drummer famous for his work with Nightmares On Wax and other artists.
DJ support from a slew of great producers / DJs including Seth Troxler, Maceo Plex, Joris Voorn, Sasha, Dubfire, Tensnake, SLAM, Shinedoe, Max Cooper, Riva Starr, Monika Kruse, Maribou State and Ivan Smagghe.
