Inspired by the early electronic sounds of Detroit and Chicago, along with nascent German techno and the underground sounds of Belgian New Beat, Hi-Shock struck out on his own DJing career in 1988. Ever since – always striving to perfect his skills – he’s taken both vinyl-spinning and production work to the highest level.
In recent years Hi-Shock has developed and helms the wildly successful Elektrax Music label group (which includes Elektrax Recordings, Gynoid Audio, Android Muziq & Hypnotic Room). Simon has also released his own sounds through other labels like Nachtstrom Schallplatten, Brilliant, 70 Drums and IF? – along the way being charted and played by the likes of Tommy Four Seven, Luke Slater, Chris Liebing, Damon Wild and Dave Clarke amongst others.
