Tim Green - Her Future Ghost
Tim Green returns to Cocoon with his atmospheric and emotive LP titled ‘Her Future Ghost’.Surprisingly, after more than a decade’s successful career, this is his debut album. Dual single‘Echo / They Want Us To Fall Down’, the first release from the eleven-track LP, drops on April 27th both digitally and on vinyl. A cinematic, emotive production, led by deep chords and rattling percussive sweeps adorned with loop pedals and menacing synths, the two-tracker forms an intriguing foretaste of the LP, due on May 18th.
Making full use of the LP format’s potential, Tim composed ‘Her Future Ghost’ like an electronic soundtrack to a romantic film. My concept and direction for ‘Her Future Ghost’ was to write a film score for a film that doesn’t actually exist,’ says Tim. ‘As an avid film score fan, I wanted to create a body of work that took certain typical soundtrack traits. For example, different motifs that repeat throughout, like character themes which evolve and mutate as well as a narrative that develops through the music. In my mind the story is about two people in the future, a couple on another planet so distorted and corrupted in comparison to the our world. Essentially they are trying to flee and survive in a society where they have to go to extreme lengths not be caught and put into the same system and society as everyone else on this planet.’
The album concept was further influenced by the work of Ahmed Emad Eldin, an Egyptian digital artist best known for his design on Pink Floyd’s 2014 album ‘The Endless River’. Tim reached out personally to the artist, and the two collaborated on the cover art for ‘Her Future Ghost’ – making this an even more cohesively creative, fully crafted release.
Tim made his production debut on four:twenty in 2006, going on to release on Dirtybird and Get Physical, before Cocoon tapped the young producer for his first EP on the label in 2011. Whilst the prolific studio head has continued to experiment on other respected labels such as Lee Burridge’s Get Weird label and Cityfox, Cocoon and Sven Vath have helped Tim’s productions reach the biggest dancefloors in Ibiza and across the globe – so it’s fitting he returns to this dance institution for his debut album.
A fiery live DJ, Green has been tapped by Sven Vath to play at Cocoon events worldwide (Amnesia Ibiza, Dockyard Festival, Mysteryland, Parookaville, Off Week Sonar showcase at Pacha Barcelona) as well as his solo gigs at some of the world’s most respected clubs; Panorama Bar, WOMB Tokyo, Fabric London and Rex in Paris to name just a few.
Whilst Tim Green’s prowess at electrifying dance floors was never in question, the release of ‘Her Future Ghost’ shows the talented producer spreading his wings and pushing himself to fulfill his creative potential – this is just the beginning of a new and exciting chapter of Green’s career.
‘Her Future Ghost’ drops on Cocoon on Friday 18th May.
