Simon McCann took influence from Plymouth’s Dance Scene after frequenting many venues in his youth and listening to national and international radio shows. It was here he decided Trance music was for him and although he was influenced by the more commercial sounds, he found the more nights he attended in the city the more underground, yet broader his taste became.
Taking to mixing at the rather late age of 22, his tastes have developed to the stage where he has played Trance for many years and it was after a friends encouragement at a house party that he submitted a mix into the Liquid Pulse DJ Competition in 2013, which he won. Since winning the competition in 2013 Simon has played at Ministry Of Sound in London, Volksfest and this year he made in debut in Ibiza. He has also started producing trance and has had his first three singles ‘One Day’, ‘Black Moon’ and ‘The Unknown’ all signed to leading trance imprint Discover.
Amassing DJ support worldwide with Paul Van Dyk, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Alex M.O.R.P.H giving the thumbs up on his productions, Simon has recently launched the Cohesion event brand which has brought Dave Pearce, Judge Jules, Public Domain, Lee Haslam and others to his home town. ‘Cohesion Radio’ seemed the logical step and launched in January 2017, which is already being syndicated worldwide both on FM stations and digitally.
Expect to hear a lot more from Simon McCann in 2017!
