Backdrop Co-Founder, Resident DJ, last at the party. North East England via Hong Kong. A passion for raving and hunting down esoteric, heavy, trippy wax. Reality can feel tough; music helps.
Simon’s passion for music was a delayed one, with a true love of electronic music not arriving until the age of 22. Despite this late start, years of hard digging later, and with an unbridled passion for wax purism driving and inspiring the search for unique and trippy music, it doesn’t feel like any ground has been lost. You can catch Simon alongside Dr. Joseph (UK) headlining Backdrop’s own free parties at Ernest in the Ouseburn Valley (Newcastle); supporting Backdrop headliners at Cosmic Ballroom and World Headquarters; and hosting Backdrop parties in London, Newcastle and Edinburgh. The future looks bright for Backdrop, and for Simon & Dr Joseph (UK).
