Simon has been djing and collecting records for over 19 years having got the dj bug from being a regular at the Hacienda listening to the likes of Mike Pickering and Graeme Park. Once moving to Leeds in 1992 to start university Simon hosted a radio show on what was then probably Yorkshires biggest pirate radio station Dream FM which continued until Dream FM finished broadcasting in 1996. In his final year at university he worked behind the counter of Eastern Bloc, Leeds and ended up staying there after University.
Simon has been djing at a number of venues around Leeds and Manchester and held a residency for 6 years at nights "Rhythm Shower" and "Performance" from 1995 through to 2001 and recently at "Abstract Soul", "Speak Your Peace" in Leeds. Currently you can catch Simon guesting at various venues in the UK, Europe and Scandinavia.
Simon's Nu-World dj mix started on Samurai FM March 2004 with a musical policy which includes old and new Soul, Jazz, House, Drum and Bass, Funk, Hip-Hop and just about every style in between - mixed exclusively for Samurai FM.
You can also catch Simon weekly on the Basic Soul Show which is broadcast on FM radio, podcast and various web-stations across the globe. Check out the ever-expanding Basic Soul website. Which includes album reviews, features/interviews with well known and up-and-coming artists.
