Chiminyo is the alter ego of Tim Doyle, an extraordinary drummer in London’s indie, electro, and jazz scenes. “Breathin'” is out July 16 and is the first single from his debut album I AM PANDA, which comes out in September on Gearbox Records.
Chiminyo’s debut EP was described as “innovative” by Red Bull Music and “startlingly inventive” by Clash Magazine, his music earning him a Gilles Peterson WWFM Track of the Year nomination as well as a Jazz FM Digital Award nomination.
As a solo artist, his self-coded software allows him to trigger samples and synths with every drum hit, inhabiting the liminal space between the actual rawness of concerts and a futuristic digital world. Think Flying Lotus with a Euro-R&B strain and that puts you in the ballpark. Chiminyo is wildly creative. First single “Breathin'” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-J89g88HO1Y
