As a teenager living on the outskirts of Munich studying classical guitar, Timur Tokdemir began to explore club culture on his trips to Berlin, which ultimately led him down to a different path. Rather than pursuing a career in classical music, Tokdemir relocated to Berlin and released his first EP “See Thru” that put him on the radar of the international electronic music scene. Starting out with collaborations with Yung Lean and Palmistry he soon had amassed a catalogue of euphoric, minimal pop nuggets. After touring the States, Asia, South America and Europe even before he hit the age 21, Tokdemir materialized his unique style in earnest on 2018’s stark All My Time, released on Lorenzo Senni’s Presto!? imprint to wide acclaim. With brightly colored synths and only a whisper of percussion, it advanced Senni’s template and pushed it into further corners of the globe, touching on dancehall and other global pop sounds. The following years he continued his exploration of new angles on pop and electronica by putting out undeniably catchy collaborations with Bladee and Ecco2K, video-game soundtracks such as 2020”s “Defective Holiday” and mixes that all make use of his unmistakable handwriting. In the end of 2021 Mechatok released a collaborative album with Bladee, followed by a remix album that featured Charli XCX, Evian Christ and more.
