Dubstep Mastermind... at 14 Years Old

Updated on December 8, 2014

A 14 year old producer? Let's think about the reality of this for a second. Imagine yourself in either 8th or 9th grade, learning how to create sick, heavy dubstep beats through intricate music production software programs and control boards. I don't know about you, but when I was 14 I thought learning how to play the flute was difficult. Dion Timmer is from the Netherlands and is already signed with Datsik's Firepower Records, Squirrel Records and Most Addictive Records. If you're an advocate for dubstep music, you'll be thoroughly impressed by the number of popular producers who are already backing Timmer's music.

  • Excision
  • Dodge & Fuski
  • Datsik
  • Barely Alive
  • Spag Heddy
  • Crizzly
  • Downlink
  • Getter
  • F3tch
  • xKore

Excision for one, has already produced a song with Dion called "Out of Time" ft. Splitbreed. While Timmer may only have about 5,000 followers (which is still significant for his age) on SoundCloud, Excision has a whopping 254,000+. By collaborating with Excision to produce a song that was featured in his 2014 Shambhala Music Festival Set, he was able to get his name out and prove himself to be a rookie DJ to watch. Their song "Out of Time" has over 145,000 listens alone, and the Shambhala set has - ready? - 1,700,000 listens. I think it's safe to say that Timmer's music is definitely not going unnoticed.

Not only did Dion Timmer produce a track with Excision, but the bass heavy trio known as Destroid (Excision, Downlink, and KJ Sawka of Pendulum) opened their 2014 Spring Awakening Music Festival set in Chicago with one of Timmer's unreleased remixes. Having over 75,000 attendees, the Spring Awakening Music Festival definitely isn't a bad place for a popular group of producers to drop one of your tracks at the very beginning of their set. That's some prime publicity right there! Dion Timmer is well on his way to making his name one to remember in the dubstep game. At only 14 years old, he has a significant head start for his generation of producers and will absolutely dominate the electronic dance music scene in years to come.
