Timmy Richardson aka TOT, Bronx, New York native likes to say he started his deejaying around the age of three. That would be when he got his first record player. He became obsessed with records. As he got older he became obsessed with radio. He grew up listening to all the major NYC stations at the time. His all-time favorite was Frankie Crocker everyday on WBLS in New York City. This all led to him becoming a DJ as well as an avid record collector.
He would go on to become one of the underground scene’s well-known DJ’s. He became a partner with Greg Daye of Wild Pitch, the moving underground parties of the late 80s – early 90s. A few years later he realized his dream of playing abroad when he traveled to Japan for a 3-city tour. He has also played in Brussels, Belgium.
In 2006 he decided to start a record label called TOT PRESENTS. TOT is an acronym for “The Other Timmy”. People very often confuse him with the legendary Timmy Regisford of Club Shelter. The label has a few releases out now produced by Timmy himself, as well as others. You can find them on various digital download sites. Timmy also specializes in mash-ups. Since 2004 he has amassed over 400 mash-ups as well as remixes and re-edits. He is proud to say that his collaboration edit with Greg Womack of the Jones Girls’ – Nights Over Egypt, was released on Philadelphia International: The Re-edits. Some have also been released on King Street Records & Restricted Access. Timmy is also co-owner of http://deephousepage.com inherited from Gerard Rose. That is where you can hear tons of mixes from DJ’s from all over the world and classic radio mixes, as well as engage in dialogue about music and the scene in their wildly popular forums. The site has now spawned an online radio station. Another dream Timmy has realized.
