Dutch producer Tim van Werd offers a sneak peek at his forthcoming EP with its leading track “Who You Are,” a progressive gem that showcases his signature style. Always an expert at crafting sophisticated releases that are at once uplifting and dark, van Werd incorporates soulful vocals that ride upon cinematic melodies with a deep, rolling bassline. “Who You Are” follows his earlier singles “Same Three Words,” “One Inside,” in collaboration with Marcus Santoro, and “Time To Save,” released in collaboration with Nicky Romero himself as Monocule. We can’t wait to see what he comes up next as he continues to leave his dark imprint on Protocol and beyond.
Tim van Werd’s interest in music began at a young age with the drums, trumpet, and piano through training in classical, pop, and jazz music. As a dance music producer, this expertise shines through in his seamless productions and dynamic style that blends elements of different genres. After receiving early support and track signings from Hardwell, Dannic, Fedde le Grand, and Nicky himself, Tim produced his hit “Balkan Disco,” which has amassed over 4 million plays and put him officially on the map. He followed up with “Break The Night” and “Message From The Whales,” all of which got attention from some of the industry’s biggest names. 2020 found van Werd returning to his true love of house music with “Time To Save,” in collaboration with Nicky Romero as Monocule, “Wars” ft. LAKSHMI, as well as a remix of Michael Gray’s legendary song “The Weekend.” Proving himself a formidable up-and-coming talent, this is only the beginning of Tim van Werd’s rise to the top.
