Tim Sloan, known to many as Slenderman, is the co founder of Visceral Records, American hard house DJ/Producer hailing from Phoenix, AZ.
Starting at early childhood, Tim always new he was destined to live a life that revolved around music. When he was young he would spend time at his grandparents house for hours banging away on the keys of his grandmother’s organ, learning to play songs by ear. As he got older he decided to try different avenues of musical instruments ranging from drums to trumpet.
While in high school in 1994 he discovered British music group, Prodigy. That is when he decided to lay down the instruments and enter the world of electronic music. Quickly learning the craft of DJing, Tim decided to start dabbling with production. By the year 2000, Tim was writing full tracks . From that moment on, there was no looking back.
Taking elements from many different genres, Sci-Fi and even horror films, Tim has developed a unique non-genre specific style that sets him apart from the other producers. Tim fell in love with the sounds of UK Hard House and started J.U.I.C.E. Entertainment, spinning his way across the entire state of California, from San Diego to San Francisco in the company of some of hard house’s heaviest hitters like Chris C, Madam Zu, Baby Doc & SJ, and the Organ Donors.
When asked why he loves making music so much, he simply replied that music is his drug and that it is what gets him high. He feels that each track that he creates is like a lottery ticket, it is either a winner or loser. Tim writes music as a way to challenge himself and learn new techniques and aspects of production.
In 2004 Tim and his best friend conventionalized the idea of starting a record label, by 2010 the label was outlined and in 2016 Tim and his friend launched his greatest achievement, a record label called Visceral Records. Today, Visceral Records is a fully functioning, label featured on the UK’s Toolbox Digital Shop. When asked what his main goals for the record label are, he replied that now that VR is recognized in the UK, it is time to bring it home and build the name in the US.
Today, Tim is currently a resident for Rob Howard. He also has a track that is being featured on LAB4’s upcoming album. Tim is currently working on music, tailoring his sounds for the masses. You can also catch him out gigging around town representing Visceral Records and moving dance floors everywhere.
