DJ Timber – Presents his Space Funk Breaks Mix.

That period of the 90s when B-boying came back.  One of the artists that caught my attention back then was the Dj Who went by the name Timber.  I had seen videos of him cutting up breaks for events, but in the heat of the moment, he would jump of the turntables and enter the circle. You could clearly see Timber was dedicated and passionate about this culture.

Years passed and we eventually crossed paths in Birmingham.  It was a pleasure meeting him.  What I like most about Timber is his dedication to this art form.  He went on his own journey. He is very independent and stands alone.  These are all traits of someone that has something special about them.  Now settled in Canada DJ Timber this week presents his Break Mix.  Its available to check out at his Band Camp.

Please check out his project Space Funk Here.

In 1985 there was a very important event that happened in London. The Shaw Theatre Jam. It was an event where a crew from the States NYC came to the UK and performed alongside a host of UK artists. Cosmic Jamm, who was a mentor to many surprised our American guests and showed them that here in the UK that we really had some talent. The event itself for those that were there was monumental and plays an important role in Hip Hops evolutions within the UK. A culture was being born.

Premier of new trailer for Pritt Kalsi’s ‘Looking for the Perfect Beat’

This is probably the most important post to date. For years many people know of me as a filmmaker. The man behind the King of the Beats series, The Turntable Trixters and the Paul C Film.

Before any of that, I started a project titled ‘The Men & Their Music’. This film got shelved. Years later after getting separated I embarked on a new journey, starting my project ‘Looking of the Perfect Beat’. I’ve counted already 9 trips to NYC just on this Project.

In 2015 I had completed a rough of the film that at the time I felt was ok, but after taking it to NYC a few of the artists I showed asked me to use some of the footage I filmed of them almost 20 years before.

I didn’t ever work in a conventional way. When I first started going to NYC I rolled up with a camera running around the city without much of plan. Over the years I had won and earned the respect of my peers in the states who understood what I was about and saw themselves my work ethic.

I didn’t ask for funding I never asked for help, but I remember clearly many people telling me I couldn’t do this. They felt I never had the skills. How’s this factory worker think he can make a movie. That motivated me, and because I knew that the artists believed in me that I would go make this film.

I funded this on factory wages in the midlands. I have fort through many battles internally and externally, lived on beans and toast for many years, deprived my self of holidays and weekends away determined to one day get this film done.

In 2013 I did release a trailer of what was the film at the time, but over the years it has changed dramatically.

For the last 16 years, I have been working 3 shifts in a factory. That I only get 2 weeks to leave I can book my self. So time for me is very precious. I would go to NYC to film.

We are now in 2020, and in this year we endure this COVID Pandemic. Like many of the Nation I was put on to Furlough. My first reaction was 2 weeks off I’m going to work on my film. This turned into 13 weeks, which then turned into a Redundancy.
