Already brandishing an artillery of audacious pop remixes, Brighton’s Tim Mason returns with a remodel of British X-Factor victor James Arthur’s “Recovery.” As one of the more versatile big room assets to bless Size Records and a wealth of high-profile labels, Mason’s follow-up to remix duties for Steve Aoki’s “Singularity” builds a tense aural canvas of sounds that reach their peak with his signature melodic form. Held against the original cut and the considerable surge of crossover remixes on the market, this is yet another reason to assert that Tim Mason is still one of Europe’s more consistent pop manipulators to bless the global club circuit. Whilst the world patiently awaits those Size IDs that kept us longing through the summer months, Tim’s take on “Recovery” is more than capable of holding the fort for now.
Kaskade linked up with Swanky Tunes after the success of their “Eyes” remix, and the collaboration between the American superstar and Russian threesome resulted in “No One Knows Who We Are.” With the captivating appeal from Kaskade and the electro velocity from Swanky Tunes, the track has been nothing short of massive since its December release. Tim Mason, however, envisioned something even greater. Providing crisp chords and big room progression, his rendition of “No One Knows Who We Are” offers the Mason trademark while leaving much to be enjoyed for long-time Kaskade fans.
Tim Mason is the latest in a line of producers to remix the very large “No One Knows Who We Are” from Kaskade and Swanky Tunes. In what is probably the most traditionally big room remix of the bunch (Rune RK went more melodic on his edit), Tim Mason packs a Size Records-worthy punch for this premiere. Heading down to Miami soon? You can catch this live when Tim hits up No Sugar Added on Saturday March 23rd.
Pete Tong is back this week with his weekly Essential Selection, featuring a flurry of new music that spans the dance music spectrum. We are treated to two world premieres this week; one from Ibiza royalty Solomun, and the other from Hot Natured vocalist/producer Ali Love.

Progressive lovers were treated to Tiesto’s remix of Zedd’s “Clarity,” W&W and Ummet Ozzcan’s “The Code,” and Tim Mason’s “Swoon” among others.

So it seems that “Hit It“ won’t be the next release from Size Records. Instead, Tim Mason has a glorious reunion with his respective imprint, returning from hiatus that had progressive house world building with anticipation Following in the footsteps of earlier anthems such as “Anima” and “The Moment,” Mason reverts to his melodic synth layers, deep bass kicks, and escalating chords. With “Swoon,” he has completed his trifecta of big room, festival-dominating records in the vein of Steve Angello.
It’s been a while since we’ve heard a production bit from the studio of Tim Mason, but the Brighton-born DJ/producer has (with help from Pete Tong) finally broken his silence. After making way for younger talent such as Qulinez, Mason returns to his respective Size Records for his next release, “Swoon.” Featuring catchy melody, kick drum flare, and a big room aura, his latest offering is due to match the caliber of his timeless hits “Anima” and “The Moment.” The wait will soon be over and “Swoon” will hit the release circuit on February 11th.
Size Records own Tim Mason has made a name for himself with the production of two heavyweight anthems. “Anima” and “The Moment” made their way into DJ sets everywhere once released in 2011, and are now receiving a facelift in 2012. Mason has mixed up both tracks, lightening them up and supplying fresh energy for the dubbed ‘OMG mixes.’ The deeper elements of the originals have been bolstered by a fun and airy sound fit better for the summer.

er of Size TV, which is Angello’s version of a webisode. The series will include candid moments, pieces of the production process, and intimate glimpses of what it means to be a Size records artist. This episode captures Size recording artists AN21 & Max Vangeli, Third Party, Tim Mason, Qulinez and Wayne & Woods as they prepared for the Size Matters pool party during Miami Music Week. Although we were hoping the video would feature more of the always amusing Angello, it was nice to get to know members of his roster. Plus, it’s always interesting to get a behind the scenes look at events — especially for those of you who were in attendance. Any guesses on what episode two will bring?
A few weeks back we brought you news that State of Emergency had booked Afrojack and Shermanology to play an on-campus event at Indiana University the weekend of the Little 500. If seeing the Can’t Stop Me Now crew, slated to play Wednesday April 18th, wasn’t enough, Tiesto, Alesso, and Tim Mason will be coming to town the day after. Dubbed the Bounce Music Festival, crowds of over 15,000 are expected at the Pic a Chic Farm located a few miles off the university campus. If Avicii‘s show in Bloomington last Halloween is any sort of barometer, back-to-back sets from Tim Mason, Alesso, and Tiesto will undoubtedly be huge. Click after the break for the official poster of the festival and be sure to pick up your tickets from WantTickets if you’ll be in the area.
