Simon Caldwell

Simon Caldwell is one of a handful of DJ's whose name adds a certain integrity to an
event. Playing since the early 1990’s to beer drinkers, bum shakers and radio listeners
alike, he has managed to avoid the stifling 'style' classification so many other DJ's trap
themselves into, keeping himself free to draw on his varied loves of deep, soulful house,
techno, funk, jazz, electro, booty, hip hop and anything else which catches his ear. Simon
has supported (on the same stage) a list of internationals longer than your arm, including
Larry Heard, Theo Parrish, James Brown, DJ Sotofett, The Black Madonna, Todd Terje,
Rolando, Herbert, Claude Young, Maurice Fulton, Grace Jones, Derrick Carter, Vakula,
Moodymann, Actress, Onra, Moritz von Oswald, Charles Webster, Fred P and Frankie
Knuckles, to name just a few. He currently holds down Monday Sunset on FBI Radio, and
is resident/co-promoter of Mad Racket, a Sydney underground party institution running
since 1998, responsible for the first ever tours of Moodymann, Herbert, Jamie Lidell, The
Black Madonna, Charles Webster, Jus Ed & Steve Bug, among others. Among many
podcasts and live mixes, Simon has been invited to present mixes for Resident Advisor’s
illustrious podcast (#181), Melbourne Deepcast, John Digweed’s Transitions show and
Boiler Room (in early 2014, alongside Derrick Carter). In mid 2014 Simon based himself
in Berlin for three months and played 5 shows there at clubs including Wilde Renate and
Prince Charles, plus 2 shows in Russia and shows in Hamburg (Golden Pudel Club) and
London (Rhythm Section, Peckham). In 2016 and 2017 Simon did shows in Berlin and
Hamburg, including sets at legendary clubs Golden Pudel (Hamburg) and Heidegluhen
and About:blank (Berlin)
