Not just known for creating his own material, the hip-hop / electronic beat-maker has kept fans entertained with his remix work. ” Versions” is a collection of official and bootleg remixes of artists ranging from the likes of MF Doom to Crystal Castles and was put out for free download.

As he’s due to start working on his follow up EP, it’s essential you catch his live set this time around as it might be a while before he’s back again!

Simon’s music showcases and impressive blend of eerie ambient highs, tortured synths, old school Hip-Hop percussion and huge seething bass drones.
