Tim Sweeney is an American radio host, DJ, and producer, best known for his long-running show on WNYU-FM, Beats in Space. Sweeney also runs independent label under the Beats in Space moniker. Sweeney’s show, Beats in Space, first aired on WNYU in the Fall of 1999, while Sweeney was a freshman at NYU. The show gained traction after he hosted many high-profile DJs and producers in the early 2000s, including James Murphy, DJ Harvey, Carl Craig, Diplo, The Avalanches, and Hot Chip, among others.

Tim Sweeney is the nicest and most self-deprecating hustler in dance music that you’re likely to meet. His grueling schedule includes hosting WNYU’s Beats In Space, travelling to DJ club gigs most weekends, and running his own Beats In Space label, which releases underground dance music inspired by the radio show. But he does all of this with a sense of duty; he can’t not play, archive and remix records. At the time, Sweeney’s tastes leaned toward hip-hop, turntablism, and IDM. During his internship at the studio run by DFA founders Tim Goldsworthy and James Murphy, the focus of his shows shifted to the triumvirate of house-techno-disco, with heavy balearic and cosmic influences. Murphy and other DFA affiliates often appeared as guests on the show in its early days.
