Dazzling with a distinctive production style that leaps across genre boundaries like psychedelic, dystopian film soundtracks, rave, drum and bass and soul, are among the influences that inspire Timothy’s songs.
It’s like screaming along the freeway channel surfing the radio to random stations, yielding a unique head bopping every time The Mindful Cherub Remixes by 9 Theory, Time Meddler and Floating Pyramids out now!

what it delivers. ‘A&R Factory’

“a really unique take on this genre, and is something that can only strengthen Timothy’s catalogue.” – RGM
Originally released on Future So Bright, the debut long player from Timothy and the Apocalypse. The Mindful Cherub, plays off conventional desires for HipHop Radio and commercial meditation with soothingly illusionary chimes and 60’s psyche escapism.Upon releasing Future So Bright, his critical update to downtempo electronica demanded the attention of playlist curators landing The Mindful Cherub on Spotify’s Just Chill and NightShift, setting him among contemporaries such as Peggy Gou and Oneohtrix Point Never.
“The Mindful Cherub, is sure to entice anyone who recognises David Lynch as an exceptional electronica artist as well as an incredible filmmaker. There are plenty of odes to the cold psychedelic tones found in Pinky’s Dream, featuring Karen O; the tonally multifaceted track was written as a nod to 60’s Psyche escapism, and that’s exactly what it delivers.”
Here within this selection of remixes, the core concept of mindfulness refreshes how you hear the original track. Leading with a remix by 9 Theory (a prominent figure in downtempo house who has worked with Emancipator and Jason Mraz), the LA-based producer focuses on building tuned percussion from the available harmonic structures cultivating a calm introversion, whereas Floating Pyramids is grounded in an organic determination, allowing the haze of vocal samples to swirl past without interference. Time Meddler’s contribution is a clear and present cut, elevating the key identifiers of the original into a crystalline view.
Where the original track placed acid jazz alongside retro-futurism, these revisions integrate the space, textures and time for reflection on all things modern.
