Russian artist Tim Aminov addresses social issues that still permeate our generation like poison in his new dark R&B single “Veneno,” which literally means poison in Spanish. It’s a broody and hypnotically smoky song where Tim reminds us that despite advances of technology, our own social and racial perceptions have a ton of catch up to do. Stream below:
“In the text I wanted to bring up the topic of people’s limited thinking in their perception of each other. Despite us living in the 21st century and our technologies developing with leaps and bounds, society still suffers from racial and gender prejudices. This is my first official release, where I work not only as a producer, but also perform the vocal part. With this release I want to start a new direction and grow as an artist. There is a big team of musicians behind me on this track.” shared Tim.
Raised in Moscow, Tim started toying with electronic music since the age 12 and launched his solo career in 2013. One half of the indie bass duo AANBREKEN, Tim has won several awards including the Russian industrial prize for “The Best Electronic Project of the Year.” Tim was also selected as DJ Mag’s Top 10 Bass Releases of the year – which really isn’t surprising once you hear his songs.
