“I’m LOVING the album. It’s so captivating and epic, evolving and morphing all the time.. but still hooky and catchy as hell. It’s a treat for my ears that I’m really happy I found…”

SHARLENE HECTOR- BASEMENT JAXX

“Second Hand Spaceman sucks you into his spacey eerie vibe with spooky alien-like soundscapes and sticky beats. Its an incredible electronic phenomenon.”

INDIE BUDDIE
 


"Morcheeba meets Zero 7 meets Lemon Jelly in an anchorman news anchor style showdown that quickly escalates into the unique sound that is Secondhand Spaceman.

Chilled vibes, organic samples and quirky edits, plus the funk of Blast Off all combine to illustrate the skill and diversity of an artist to keep your eyes on."

TONY SLACKSHOT - 1BRIGHTONFM

 

 

“While I was in post-op recovery Blast Off gave the the space to reset myself, away from the hustle and bustle of City life. The album allows me to recharge my batteries.”

The Musical Journey

Where It All Started

Second Hand Spaceman is an electronic music artist, named Tim Reynolds, from London with a passion for vinyl, turntablism and sample culture.

Growing up, he was heavily rooted in the punk rock scene, eventually discovering Nu-metal and quickly falling into love with hiphop. Discovering that it was OK to listen to different genres, Tim's tastes spread like wildfire, discovering and cherishing Jazz, funk, soul, so many types of dance music - particularly drum'n'bass... reggae, Afro beats & world music - a world of happiness he still can't quite believe he started to experience so late.

Now, still with the same passion for music, new and old, Tim has embarked upon his own musical journey, as Second Hand Spaceman. 

"Second hand" is a tipped hat to sample culture and the idea that everything is recycled, while "Spaceman" is Tim showing his love for NASA, Star Wars and all things Sci-fi.

Having worked for several years as a studio engineer and record producer, with his music and collaborations featured on TV commercials & feature films, as well as producing tracks for artists - not to mention playing drums and DJing live - Reynolds has been busy gaining a wealth of industry experience. Now, in 2017 he's ready to embark upon a new solo project using everything he's learnt over the years... Second Hand Spaceman.

 
 

Saving the planet

Here's a list of ways that people can take action on Climate Change & protecting the environment right now, to affect real change in our world.

Eat Less animal products

It takes 2,500 gallons of water to produce a single pound of beef. And each hamburger that comes from animals on ex-forestry ground is responsible for the destruction of fifty-five square feet of forest. That's an astoundingly wasteful way to feed ourselves. 
There are so many delicious alternatives available now. Why not try some?

change your search engine

Ecosia is an incredible search engine (like google) that takes 80% of its profits and spends it on planting trees. So far they've planted over 6.5 million trees! That's pretty amazing! When you switch to them you get your own little tree counter, so you can see how your clicks are generating trees planted.

Plant Trees

They breathe in pollution and breathe out oxygen. They soak up flood waters, they cool our planet and they give homes to millions of species. Science now shows that "forest bathing" (effectively walking around in a forest) is good for your health! How could you not love trees? 

Looking for more ways to plant trees? Great!

Change to a green only energy supplier

We're using more and more energy in our homes. Governments are being very slow to change over from fossil fuels, so the change has to (and is already) come from the ground up. 

You can change over to a green only energy supplier today! Their prices are very competitive with the big 6 in the U.K. So there's no good reason not to switch! They even have green gas, made from food waste!

Try these:

reuse and recycle

Recycling is very important as waste has a huge negative impact on the natural environment. Harmful chemicals and greenhouse gasses are released from rubbish in landfill sites. Recycling helps to reduce the pollution caused by waste. ... Recycling reduces the need for raw materials so that the rainforests can be preserved.


Reusing is better than recycling because it saves the energy that comes with having to dismantle and re-manufacture products. It also significantly reduces waste and pollution because it reduces the need for raw materials, saving both forests and water supplies.


Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle — Three great ways YOU can eliminate waste and protect your environment! Waste, and how we choose to handle it, affects our world's environment—that's YOUR environment. The environment is everything around you including the air, water, land, plants, and man-made things.

rethink your transport

There are so many small changes we could all make to make a big difference. Share lifts with people, cycle, walk, take public transport, have an online meeting instead of travelling to a real one. Change your car to an electric one (and power it with your new electricity from your 100% green supplier!)

go outside

Ok, how's this going to help? It's no secret that we're spending more and more time at home, staring at a computer, TV, tablet, mobile phone or other electronic device. 

Not only is it bad for your health, especially your eyes, but it's bad for the environment - at least until the world gets 100% of its energy from clean & renewable sources. 

Get Solar Panels

Solar technology is no longer a joke. It's actually pretty amazing! So amazing, in fact, that you can put a few panels on your roof that will generate enough energy for your home and more! You can actually profit from it by selling the excess energy to the national grid! That's a beautiful thing! 

There are several government funding programs to help or even completely pay for your panels too! 


Don't like the national grid? No worries! Tesla have some really cool home batteries. Hook your solar panels up to your batteries and you can live off grid! Fantastic! 

Reduce Food Waste

Reducing Wasted Food At Home. Most people don't realize how much foodthey throw away every day — from uneaten leftovers to spoiled produce. ... Once in landfills, food breaks down to produce methane, a potent greenhouse gas which contributes to climate change
