        Maas' first fascination with music was sparked by listening to the
radio when he was young. At the age of 9 he bought his first record and went
on to buy his first set of turntables at 17. His very first set was in 1982,
when he played at a party in his friend's home. The beginning of his career
consisted mostly of gigs around Germany playing "Top 40"-records, but
occasionally sneaking in a techno record. It was to be another 6 years from
his first set that he performed his first official all-techno set. In 1992
Maas was introduced to the early German rave scene after being booked for a
rave at Easter. His fascination with the rave culture led him to play at many
different rave-events of many sizes and scales both at home and abroad. It was
in this way that Maas earned a name in the electronic underground scene.

        Maas first began producing records in the '80s, but his first record
The Final XS was not released until 1995. The Final XC did not sell well, and
Maas himself even called it Cheesy, which is a term used in electronic music
to describe something too simple and predictable. His second record release
was with another producer, Gary D, with Die Herdplatte, which was a bigger
success than his first album. Gary D also gained Maas a residency at Hamburg's
famous club, The Tunnel, between 1994 and 1996.

        Through British contacts Maas played at the Bristol club Lakota. Maas
also began to release records through record-labels such as Hope Recordings,
both under his own name and the alias Orinoko. Maas has also recorded under
many aliases such as Mad Dogs and many others together with his manager and
friend Leon Alexander. In 2000 Timo Maas began a residency alongside Deep
Dish at the New York club Twilo.

        Maas first became popular in mainstream dance music through his remix
of Azzido Da Bass' Doom's Night, in the wake of this success he released
Music For The Maases Volume 1, a mix album consisting of many of his previous
tracks and remixes. After producing another mix album called Connected with
Paul Oakenfold's imprint Perfecto Maas released his own debut album Loud in
2002. The album featured guest appearances from Kelis and Finley Quaye. A
second Music For The Maases, Volume 2, was released, again consisting of
remixes and new tracks. In 2005 Maas released his second personal album,
Pictures, featuring guest artists Kelis, Neneh Cherry and Placebo's Brian

        His "To Get Down" track has been widely used in movie soundtracks such
as the 2003 remake of The Italian Job (2003 film), Riders in 2002, as well as
other mediums such as the video game, FIFA 2003, and a Budweiser beer

        On the popular video game The Sims 2: Nightlife, a remix of the
Neighbourhood screen music is credited to him.
