Timur Tokdemir, aka Mechatok, hails from Munich but now calls Berlin home. With his debut See Thru EP, the young producer exhibited a distinct and unique style at a young age. Last year, the artist returned with his sophomore EP, All My Time, released on Presto?! Records. Recently, Mechatok and Toxe launched Emiranda, a new house-oriented project with their My Face EP, released via Yegorka.
The allure of Mechatok's music can be partly traced back to the fact that he’s a classically trained instrumentalist. In his DJ sets Mechatok juggles club music, melodic pieces and rap, conveying feels from vulnerability to bliss. Much more than just a club kid, Mechatok has also shown his face as a top-notch pop producer, as can be heard in his instrumental for "Schemin" featuring Uli K and Yung Lean or the remix for Mr Mitch's "VPN".
In late 2018 Mechatok completed his latest tour of Asia, including live performances with visual artist Kim Laughton. Their collaborations have been shown via DIS Magazine’s "DIS Edutainment Network“ at San Francisco’s De Young Museum, Lafayette Foundations in Paris, Fundación Montemadrid in Madrid and at 4:3 Boiler Room in New York.
Recently, Mechatok produced "Rovin" off the new Afterlife album by long-time friend and collaborator Palmistry, featured on the LP alongside Benny Blanco, Cashmere Cat and SOPHIE. Mechatok also wrote "All I Want" for Bladee.
Finally, Mechatok and Toxe launched their new house-oriented guise Emiranda. Their debut My Face EP came out in May via Yegorka - the Janus sub-label curated by Why Be. These five sunny tracks show their lighter side, as visualized by the ultra-dreamy video for 'Real Life'. We are now booking Toxe and Mechatok as Emiranda for 2019.
