Many know Tim Rimbui aka Timwork as an award winning music producer. He has now moved from behind the scenes and put out the single Stand up which is part of his upcoming self-titled debut EP set for release later this year. Stand up doubles up as a feel good song and a club banger. You can groove to the beat without worrying about the profanity that is usually used in club bangers. Nonetheless the song lacks depth which is common for most feel good songs. The different artists in the song bring their own personality to it with Wangechi’s hip hop style giving a good break to the song. If this song is anything to go by the EP is something to look forward to.
Speaking about this unique project, Timwork said, “This record is about finally getting to do music for fans and friends and myself. I have had a career of over 15 years and I feel fortunate enough to have the blessings of top music acts as well as younger acts who still think me worthy enough to craft their sounds,” adding, “I am nervous to finally put my name on my music as an artiste but I am confident that it is my time to tell my stories through music.”
The Timwork EP will feature collaborations with Masterkraft, Rabbit, Maurice Kirya, Silvastone, Owuor Arunga, Blinky Bill, and Wangechi among others. Influences on the EP will range from pop, afro pop, EDM and dancehall. Tim is the production genius behind many well-known artists the likes of Eric Wainaina, K-South and Atemi. His recent projects include with King Kaka, several tracks on Phy’s debut album as well as upcoming collaborations with Khaligraph and Calvo Mistari. His work has earned home six nominations at the Kisima Awards as well as writing and producing songs for 3 KORA award winning Kenyan acts.
