ABOUT ︎


Radio Tempo Não Pára (Portuguese for time does not stop) is an independent online radio station based in Amsterdam. What started off as a birthday gift between two best friends, is now a platform for dozens of artists, scientists and hundreds of listeners every week. Our content varies from guest mixes by our favorite upcoming artists (AstroFM, WeatherFM) to radio shows in which scientific talk is alternated with matching music (Talk That Science). Alongside our radio content, we organize a series of events throughout the Netherlands, such as Durma Dans Et and Frei.

Scroll down and get to know Ozzy, Tosh and Tim (on the bench from left to right).

︎ Meet our passionate team of three

About Ozzy
DJ name:    Mosaic Man


Being raised in a family in which Turkish folk was alternated with contrasting genres like trance on a regular basis, Mosaic Man developed a diverse taste in music. Over the years, this translated into different musical activities, ranging from playing the guitar in a psychedelic rock band to studying jazz history in Hong Kong. An increasing interest in world disco and house music supplemented his already established jazz record collection with more danceable content, sparking the idea of trying out DJing. In 2018, he founded Radio Tempo Não Pára with the idea of playing his favorite vinyl records while talking about scientific topics from his artificial intelligence studies and related fields. Shortly after, he started inviting aspiring artists to the radio under a series called AstroFM. His sets are characterized by sounds that span over multiple continents, ever with a strong percussive nature. If the situation permits, he includes hints to his Turkish roots or upbringing with trance music.

About Tosh

DJ name:    Tosh


By growing up in two households, Tosh got exposed to a lot of different styles of music from an early age. This naturally resulted in an interest in many different genres and an everyday broadening of his sonic horizon. Because of this, he’s an avid clubber, which he thinks is still the one musical activity more fun than DJing self.

Tosh’s only requirement when listening to music is having to feel the message which the artist tries to bring across. Whether it’s narrative or emotion, drums or melody, Tosh makes his selections solely based on intuition. Being involved as early as AstroFM episode 3, the mutual passion and ambitions made it an easy decision by the team to ask for Tosh’s involvement in the project.

About Tim

DJ name:    Tember


As a kid Tember only ever heard poppy radio tunes or some progressive rock, and never really considered music to be anything special. But a couple of years later, that changed. The power of music started to daunt in and Tember became obsessed with exploring everything that he came into contact with; psychedelic rock, metal, indie, jazz or soul. Tember tried picking up the bass, but felt limited creatively. He toyed with the idea of playing records, and so it happened. His love for jazz quickly extended to more danceable organic music (disco, funk, zouk, synth-pop, bossa nova etc.) and played this for a couple of months. However, his taste quickly shifted to stranger sounds and darker electronic music. Nowadays, he plays mostly electronic music that is either full of intensity, filled with weird rhythms or mystical sounds, raw, extremely melodic or a combination of all of it. One thing is for sure, Tember’s sets are never dull. Ever since Tember joined the project, he has been an integral part of the creative vision of Radio Tempo Não Pára.
