Simon has been making huge waves in the Nu-Disco scene.
He has been a DJ for over 3 decades and a passionate & avid record collector since 1981.
Born and bred in South London, he was hooked on his sister’s love of soul, funk & disco. She experienced the soul funk & disco all-dayer scene first hand, giving Simon a good grounding in this music from an early age. The Disco edits scene has felt very natural to him, as he has always played and loved this type of music.
Simon started playing at parties & clubs in and around south London at the same time as house music was immerging.
Simon was flooded with guest slots at events around the country and was heavily involved in the eighties early pirate radio scene long before the internet. The pirate’s played a key part in establishing dance history
