Producer Simon Neale has been playing with electronic music for years. Growing up listening to synth-pop and early 90's House, plus going to a secondary school that had an undiscovered TB303 and Juno 60 covered in dust in the music room cupboard, you could say production was inevitable! School assembly's were never quite the same with House and Breakbeat driven tunes pumping out of the main hall.
Nowadays using his ‘Dave Spoon' alias, Simon is committed to the house scene offering a versatile range of pounding productions. His break came with Mark Knight signing the ‘21 st Century' EP to Toolroom Records in 2004 with instant success and support from the likes of Roger Sanchez, Steve Lawler, Tall Paul and Pete Tong. Since then the lead piano track on his recent ‘Sunrise' EP for Seamus Haji's Big Love imprint has been shaking dance floors all over the globe with plays from Deep Dish, Axwell, Steve Angello and Lucien Foort amongst others. Remix work is now pouring in with reworkings for Stealth, Pool e/Cyber, Big Love, Toolroom and
co-productions with Cr2's MYNC project. DJ appearances and guest radio mixes are helping
to shape up a place in the DJ booth but above all his commitment to Toolroom Records through 2006 means a string of new original material is on its way to a sound system near you!
