Presents The Works
International DJ & Future Producer – SplitKeys
(aka Simon) Was Inspired to start DJing in 1996 while frequently visiting nightclubs. Taking inspiration from the masters – Paul Oakenfold, Carl Cox, Boy George and Pete Tong. His passion for music knowledge grew stronger in 2005 when starting his first mobile disco. Armed with his equipment venturing into venues, bars and clubs, he developed the skills to understand the interaction between music, timing, genres and crowd reading abilities. Quote: “I love starting from scratch and building an amazing atmosphere, watching a crowd interact, dance and smile. Then that rush you get at the end of the night when they clap, shout for more and the shakes of the hand.” Simon now uses the knowledge and passion gained to instinctively understand how to build excitement and energy into his music.
SplitKeys has recently played at:
Ministry of Sound (London, UK), Eden (Ibiza), Hush (Ibiza), Ibiza Rocks Bar (Ibiza), Pure (Ibiza) Source Bar (Maidstone, UK), MuMu’s (Maidstone, UK), Izmir (Turkey), Headingly Cricket Club (Leeds) and Detling Showground (Maidstone, UK). various clubs and bars around the UK.
In 2018 Simon became part of the Ibiza News Academy, learning and building his brand from leading experts. Linking up with fellow DJ’s working and supporting each other to achieve their goals.
