Vibrating through the universe, waiting for the right time to evolve into human form, even before he was born Tim McCallum was kicking out drum beats in the womb. As a youngster Tim was fascinated by sound. Dabbling in guitar, violin, saxophone, bass recorder and singing, he found solitude in music and it spoke directly to his soul.
Discovering an affinity with the world of electronic production, Tim, as his own teacher, set out on a path that manifested inspiration and visions of performing on the world stage. To achieve this he knew he would have to become bigger within himself. Taking form as ‘Augmented’ (having been made greater in size or value), he headed down the path of creating his own music.
Augmented has invested several years refining his sound; Techno made for the bush. His hunger to create original pieces couples with an underlying desire for unique sound design. Infusing bold, undulating basslines with organic percussion, obscure melodies and samples recorded from facets of his own life, he creates music that speaks to the inner self enabling natural grooves for the dance floor, taking the audience to his ‘Augmented Reality’. When Augmented is not in the studio he has his ear close to the ground finding tracks with the freshest grooves, unforgettable basslines and melodies that will leave you waiting for that next drop.
2014 so far has been an exciting year thus far for both Augmented the DJ and Augmented the Producer - debuting his original productions locally at Rainbow Serpent Festival 2014 (Melbourne, Australia) on his moving “Pied Piper” cart, and internationally at Fusion Festival 2014 on the Roter Platz Stage alongside Julies Smif & fellow Melbournians Oblique Industries, Mood Machine & Mimm. Having recently released Animated Funk [June 2014, Smash Bang Records], Augmented also has upcoming remixes for Timmus, Jules David & Maxi Basshead. On the local stage, Augmented continues his monthly residency at Black Market (My Aeon), regular appearances at acollectivefuture’s outdoor events & iconic Windsor local Killing Time. Freshly inspired by his recent visit to Berlin, the Mecca of Techno, Augmented has the 2014-15 Australian Summer Festival Season in sight!
