Tim Baresko is the epitome of tech house. He is an up and coming artist that is definitely underrated. He has quickly been climbing the ranks in the tech/house scene. The guy is an absolute weapon and is a rare act to see. It’s going to be his very first time in San Francisco at the beautiful and enticing all-female run club, Halcyon.
He played on Groove Cruise this past year amongst his fellow Frenchman Shiba San. Most recently he has been announced as part of the lineup for Destructo’s new ship experience, beautifully called “Friendship”. Tim joins other artists: Doorly, Shiba San, Motez, Phlegmatic Dogs, Nora en Pure, Golf Clap, Anna Lunoe, J.Worre and legend Giorgio Mordoer, + many more what’s set to be the best ship experience to date.
Tim Baresko’s tech house prowess will surely make for another unforgettable night at Halcyon. With support from artists like Shiba San, Claude Von Stroke, Sonny Fodera, Tim Baresko has been carving out his own path in the house/tech music scene. His collaboration EP titled “The Connection” with Shiba San is still something I constantly play out on a day-to-day basis.
Check out his other tracks too! I am actually currently listening to “Another” by Tim Baresko & Clyde P
Tim, first of all, thank you for allowing me to interview you and for taking the time to do this for all of us!
In general, what does music do for you?
Music makes me feel in a good mood, it helps to escape from everything, It gives you emotions. That’s what I’m trying to do when I produce.
Where are you from?
I’m from Lille, north of France
(Congratulations to France on winning the World Cup 2018!)
How’d you decide on DJ/Mixing and/or Producing? Why?
The resident DJ of the club I used to go when I was younger made me want to be DJ. This guy had a ridiculous amount of skill, playing 3 vinyl’s at the same time. I watched him play for hours, then after a few years of DJ’ing, I wanted to make my own tracks. I wanted to create something, put my touch..
How long have you been DJ/Mixing and/or Producing?
I would probably say about nine years of DJ’ing and five years producing.
How did you come up with your artist name?
I went to a music school in Paris, and we had to find an artist name, which is actually difficult. It seemed easy but I wasn’t at all. I couldn’t find anything I liked, but then one day I was watching a documentary with a friend about Pablo Escobar and suddenly my friend sait to me, “Baresko”. Of course, I responded saying “Whaaat??”. He kept going on about how Baresko sounded so cool and boom that was it haha
What has been your most memorable experience so far?
Probably Tribe Festival in Brazil. A big stage with more than 10K people at the sunrise. The energy was surreal, one of my favorite set ever.
Any clubs, venues, or festivals you have played that really stuck out to you?
Ministry of Sound in London, legendary club and probably one of the best sound system in the world. Also when we had the residency at Sankeys Ibiza with CUFF, the ibiza vibe was utteraly and completely unreal…
One of the most difficult aspects about being in this scene?
The most difficult thing for me is the eternal questioning about your overall production. It’s not easy to be really objective with your own work. The most frustrating thing is having wait before the release of your track, sometimes it can take a year..
This is something I have been asking lots of artist lately, but do you feel like nowadays you can’t experience the music the same as you did when you were just a listener?
Yeah pretty much.. I mean, for example, sometimes I am chilling listening to music with some friends (who are not into music all that much) and I say some thing like “Wo, the kick bass relation is perfect on this one” and of course my friends don’t understand and say I’m not normal. Or when I’m in studio making beats, sometimes they say im kind of autistic lol.
Perhaps what they mean to say is Tim’s a wizard ha!
Favorite Artist or Favorite Track right now?
I would say Camelphat, these guys are incredible. They’re able to produce super underground tracks and more accessible stuff. Their overall sound design is incredible.
Any other upcoming Artists and/or new Tracks we should know?
Lucati, a producer from California, you will hear about him soon, this guy makes only bangers and has a special touch. I love to play his productions! His next EP is coming on Basement Leak later this month 😉
Any mixes/tracks of yours we should check out?
My new track with Clyde P and the amazing voice of Jinadu just came out on Sonny Fodera’s Label, he also did an Edit : Check It 🙂
Tim Baresko’s newest track with Clyde P called “Wanna Know” is actually superrrr smooth. The track lends itself to a groovy after hours setting (perfect for Halcyon’s dusk till dawn mission)
You’re coming to play Halcyon on Friday, July 20! First time in San Francisco, right? What can we expect to hear from you?
Yeah, I cannot wait for Halcyon, some of friends told me this venue is incredible, you can expect some bumpin’ beats from deep house to techno, I love to mix the genres.. I can’t wait to see San Francisco as well!
What’s your favorite food?
I’m a food addict. I love everything 😍🙈
Tweet Tim Baresko to let him know what your favorite food is!
Anything else you want to say Tim?
This American tour has been incredible, you American know how to party! I met a lot of amazing people and I can’t wait to come back in August for some gigs with Shiba San!
Once again, thank you Tim for taking the time out of your busy schedule to talk to me! I really do appreciate you.
Okay everybody, so the stage has been set for this Friday at Halcyon. I’m going to be there, will you?
Did I mention the ladies #pinkezup Ney x Miss Mak are doing a takeover to set the mood for this incredible night?
