Timnah Sommerfeldt has her homebase in Basel near the French-Swiss-German border triangle. Her parents run the sophisticated jazz club Zack, where jazz artists like Maceo Parker, Eddie Palmieri and Screamin’ Jay Hawkins have played live. Thus, Timnah’s relation to music has grown in a natural way, and playing the djembe helped her develop her sense for rhythms and grooves. So she didn’t need much introduction when she got her first mixer and 1200 MK II decks in 2004.
Due to her special family heritage, Timnah draws inspiration from handmade and real records. Although she’s only in her mid twenties, her playlists makes you expect an old hand that has been actively DJing since the ‘90s.
