From being the driving force in the engine rooms of two of the biggest shows on Radio 1, he utilised his finely tuned ear working as the tastemaker behind Seb Fontaine and Judge Jules, peak-time Saturday nighters. Drawing on all the knowledge gained, and an unparallel passion for music, he has now thrust himself firmly at the forefront, and is firmly forging his own career as an in-demand DJ, producer and remixer.
His style can only be described as Cutting edge, dark, driving, pulsating. In the past five years Simon has really clocked up the air miles, rocking some of the biggest parties on offer. Recently he has plied his trade in Rotterdam for crowds of up to 500,000; he has performed at the sun-drenched dance Mecca that is Ibiza year in, year out; and he has completed a huge tour of the far-east and an indoor festival in Russia where he gave 20,000 Muscovites a musical masterclass.
Last summer Patterson graced the world stage at Dance Valley, Sunrise, HI-FI, Planet Love, Mexico Stadium, plus various dates in Ibiza, Dubai, Malta, Netherlands, Canada, Germany and Cyprus and countless UK performances.
His production debut track in 2006, entitled ‘F-16’, was massive; ‘Strip Search’/’Panic Attack’ is the scheduled follow up.
Simon’s alter ego is one half of the massive Dogzilla with Richard Kayvan, most famous for recording the ever-popular ‘Without You’, which spawned the new rock trance movement. It went down as one of the precious few trance records in recent years that claimed anthem status. Countless remixes followed. .
