Simon B

Guangzhou, Guangdong, China Deep House Chill Out Reggae / Dancehall / Dub Techno +6

Simon B is DJ, producer, promoter and label owner for Guangzhou Underground (GZUG), based in Guangdong province, China.

As a DJ, he is equally at home moving dancefloors with discerning blends of cutting edge and classic house or creating a unique ambience with extended lounge sets that wander all over the musical map. This versatility and eclecticism is the direct influence of his favourite DJs such as Masters At Work, Gilles Peterson, Terre Thaemlitz and Andrew Weatherall.

Alongside fellow GZUG DJs Bass Panda and Failed State, he is a regular feature of Guangzhou nightlife, playing and promoting parties in the city's coolest clubs such as Hangover, In.Side, C:Union and LOFT345. He has also played major national dance music festivals such as Midi Electronic in Suzhou and Yin Yang on The Great Wall of China. As a promoter he has brought major international and national DJs to South China such as Om Unit, Howie Lee and Conrank.

As manager of the Guangzhou Underground record label, he has released work from respected deep house producers such as Alex Agore and Lady Blacktronika, and up-and-coming bass music artists such as Tim Reaper, Lars Warn and BSN Posse.
