Timbaland
    Sunday March 18, 2012 12:15am - 12:40am @ Austin Music Hall (208 Nueces St)

    Grammy award-winning record producer Timbaland will release his new album, Shock Value III, in 2012. “Pass At Me,” the first official single from the album, features Pitbull with productions by David Guetta and was released on September 13, 2011. Timbaland also appears on David Guetta's LP Nothing But the Beat on "I Just Wanna F." with Dev and Afrojack.
    Timbaland has stamped his indelible imprint on the music scene since the mid-1990s. His production has helped create career-defining hits for artists such as Jodeci, Aaliyah, Ginuwine, Missy Elliott, Destiny’s Child, Ludacris, Snoop Dogg and Jay-Z, amongst others. Respected beyond the genres of urban and hip hop music, Timbaland’s musical influences cross cultural lines: he has been sought by diverse superstars from Justin Timberlake to avant-singer Bjork.
    Timbaland introduced a unique rhythmic style that defined the new wave of music in the ‘90s: R&B and hip hop amalgamated with an eclectic smorgasbord of effects held together by complex syncopated snare beats. His style burgeoned when he produced Ginuwine’s hit single “Pony” and debut LP Ginuwine…the Bachelor. At the same time, his partnership with high school friend Missy Elliott blossomed into a pairing that delivered Aaliyah’s double platinum One In A Million and the two artists became one of music’s most successful production/songwriting teams. Naturally, Elliott also looked to Timbaland to define her as an artist, and their work together (tracks such as “The Rain”) propelled Elliott to major stardom and critical acclaim.
    Timbaland’s trademark sound has spawned numerous imitators; yet, he has always remained the acknowledged originator. He began a new label in partnership with Interscope even as he delivered another three albums for Elliott, including 2005’s The Cookbook. He also launched Tweet, who debuted with Southern Hummingbird and produced Lil’ Kim’s “The Jump Off.” The Game relied on Timbaland for “Steer” and “Put You On The Game.”
    Along the way he built an impressive 5,000 square foot studio in Virginia Beach where he does most of his production and he travels regularly between that location, his Miami residence, and the West Coast. In 2006 he founded a new label, again at Interscope, appropriately called Mosely Music Group (MMG). Open to all types of artists, MMG debuted with a bang: Nelly Furtado’s “Promiscuous” featuring Timbaland hit #1, as did her album, Loose. In 2007, Timbaland released his second solo album, Timbaland Presents ShockValue (Blackground/Interscope/Mosley Music Group).
