SIMON BEESTON (NZ/Berlin)
Friday night the 25th of January we're excited to present Simon Beeston playing the heart of the Auckland underground
- Ink Bar.
For the past 7 years expat-Kiwi, modern day Berliner Simon Beeston has been rocking dance floors across Europe, playing
the world's most forward thinking clubs such as Watergate, Panorama Bar and Tresor.
It has been his adventures in the infamous Berlin underground and afterhours scene however, that have seen
Simon take his craft to new levels. Clubs such as the eccentric circus of Bar 25 and KaterHolzig, the never-ending Golden Gate and the pontoons of Club Der Visionaere have given Simon the platform to hone his skills alongside the world's elite.
While Simon's DJing has led him far afield, as a producer it was his tight drum funk that caught the eyes and ears of some of the hippest imprints in Berlin house and techno. His home label Highgrade has been responsible for blueprinting much of the modern deep and tech house that has spread like wildfire across global dance floors in recent years.
Expect the freshest and tastiest treats all warped and wrapped to create a heaving mass of urban tech funk and mod house.
