Timbalad ”loves” the Madonna sessions
The most sought-after producer in pop music is not looking happy. Tim “Timbaland” Mosley, dressed in a sharp suit and tie, is ready for the first of tonight’s many close-ups. But instead of readying himself to be snapped leaving a London studio with Madonna, or caught on stage with Justin Timberlake, the 36-year-old Mosley is in Manchester, deep in the bowels of a car park improvised out of crumbling Victorian railway arches, where water drips down the walls and on to the filthy, oil-spattered floor.
He is also unforthcoming about the sessions he has been conducting in London for Madonna‘s next album, conceding that Justin Timberlake may have been involved, and saying of the work done so far: “I love it“. So it is at first a surprise when he begins to explain that he feels something of a split in his personality, between the side that likes the slower pace of the background, and the other that craves attention and fame – but less so that he couches it in a muddled cinematic metaphor.
