Soundtracking 16 million-plus videos on Tik Tok and generating views in the billions by 2021, the Toronto-born artist, producer, and creative cooks up genre-defiant anthems and curates’ viral moods. After years producing for the likes of Trey SongzRyan Leslie, and Tinashe, he found himself stuck at home at the onset of the Global Pandemic. He leveled up all-around, becoming more proficient at graphic design, photo editing, and video editing. He also studied Tik Tok and pledged to “get a viral hit. He didn’t just go viral; he practically broke the platform. “Crystal Dolphin” incited videos by dozens of influencers such as Charli D’Amelio [102 million followers], Addison Rae [71 million followers], SpencerX [50 million followers], and Loren Gray [50 million followers] as well as superstar Jason Derulo. Not to mention, the success translated to other platforms with 56 million streams on Spotify. Meanwhile, “All About Cake” inspired videos by everyone Kimberlyloazia [31.8 million followers] and Tony Lopez [23 million] to three posts from Lizzo. It would be his off-kilter sonic sensibility that shined through the loudest though, defining a whole wave in the process under the radar. Now, he asserts himself as both a trend architect and precise hitmaker on a series of 2021 singles for The Heavy Group/Republic Records, tipped off by “HOOPLA” with NLE Choppa.

Tim James states “There was so much joy in the room when we made these! We became entranced with soul music , especially sounds from the 70’s and the great soul singers of that era. I think in some respects this is an homage to that timeless era. It is an Honor to share our latest project with the world.”
