A public viewing for the late DJ and producer Tim Baker will be held tomorrow in Ann Arbor.
Tim Baker, the Chicago/Detroit techno mind behind the Elephanthaus brand and label, Chicago-based Real Estate Records and a deep personal discography of techno tracks, died on Easter Morning, according to an official statement. Baker, who was 53, collapsed while performing at a charity livestream in Chicago. He was rushed to Swedish Covenant Hospital, where he later passed.
A public viewing for Tim Baker will be held from 5:30pm to 8:00pm on Thursday, April 15 at Nie Funeral Home (2400 Carpenter Road) in Ann Arbor, Michigan. We’ve been told there will also be a celebration of life for Tim Baker held in Chicago in mid-May.
“Tim Baker’s family is heartbroken over his loss,” the statement reads, noting Baker’s love for his son, but find “comfort in the fact his music will be redreamed and remixed by future generations saying, ‘Tim made memories as we danced, reading our musical thoughts like the mystic he was. Tim is a sound ancestor now.'”
