Multi-platinum selling DJ & Producer, TiMO ODV, is back with retro Tech-House statement, ‘We Don’t Care’. We Don’t Care’ is the first single from his upcoming EP, ‘Midnight Children’. The single is an amalgamation of the past, the present and the future TiMO takes inspiration from them all mixed with falsetto vocals, pitched vocals and with a choir in the chorus. The drums are inspired by the 80s with similar processing and the 2020 inspired bass gives the track a sense of nostalgia but with a futuristic twist.
“It’s pretty much how I feel a lot of the time when I’m being misunderstood or when people have warped views of who I am. When they put you in a box you just climb out the box and say you don’t care”

Self-trained and self-taught in the process of music production, song- writing and singing, it wasn’t long until he appeared on the radar of the top label managers in South Africa. Within a few short months he was signed as a full artist to Universal Music South Africa with his debut single ‘Save Me’ being released on 20 February 2015.
The single achieved unheard of success for an up and coming dance music artist in South Africa when after only a few months it peaked on almost every chart in South Africa and was awarded Gold Status by the Recording Industry of South Africa in August 2015. It was later acknowledged as one of the most played songs on South African radio of 2015 and has collectively racked in over 4 million streams worldwide.

Typically dominated by African rhythms, Deep House in South Africa had a new life breathed into it, with a strong influence from some of his idols Gorgon City and Duke Dumont.
Since the release of ‘Save Me’, TiMO ODV has continued to deliver multi-platinum singles including ‘Find My Way’, ‘I Need You’, ‘Make You Love Me’, ‘Dancing Again’ and ‘Move’.
