Piece of Me

I'm releasing my first artist album in 10 years and I'd like to share it (and more!) with you here on Pledge.

I’ve always loved engaging with my fans through social media and I’m using Pledge because it allows for a much more personal connection. Being an independent artist comes with costs. This Pledge will fund mastering, production, and the various costs of getting the music into new ears (please pass it along!) so by participating you become a part of the musical process.

The basic tracks are being released for free because I want everyone to be able to hear the music, regardless of income. However, with every Pledge you’ll get the tracks a full week ahead of mere mortals. Plus you’ll get exclusive remixes, a continuous mix of the album so you can hear it in it’s entirety, bonus videos, and witty and verbose written snippets. You’ll feel loved. Because you are loved.

I’m also giving away some unique pieces of me (not fingers or anything – that would be weird) such as test pressings from my previous aliases, my much-loved Technics decks and Mixer, and my first ever keyboard. Once we reach our goal, you will have a chance to win a set of CDJs and a Pioneer mixer complete with a dusty CD wallet jam-packed with music I’ve played over the years. This includes unique one off mixes, revamps and other such goodies from the past.

This album is a very personal record for me and I’ve invested a lot of myself in it. My goal is to connect with the listener. I want people to feel the emotion and share the voyage, and it’s quite a departure from what I’ve done before. It’s taken a lot of courage to get here, and I’m excited to see where this journey goes.

I will come and play a full 6 hour set either to you alone (awkward), or you and all your friends (preferably) within 6 months of the album release. You must, in addition, supply travel, hotel, and meet our technical requirements (don’t worry this just means CDJs, mixer, and monitor – specifications to be included to you personally). Reach out to me if you want to discuss the requirements.

Excluding San Francisco.

Simon will send a contract to secure a date and conditions no later than a week after the campaign has ended. This option is not a replacement for a regular club booking. It is meant to be a vehicle to bring The One Series to places it wouldn’t otherwise be able to go, in a private party capacity.
