Sexy Simo aka Daniel Simpson


Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, I have had a vision to be a Dance Producer for over 15 years. The name Sexy Simo originated from High School, where Simo is short for my surname. The name has stuck ever since.


During my school years, I learned to play the piano, which has helped me write my own music also. I have always played around with new melodies to try and produce my own song. Later on, I obtained my first synthesiser, a Roland JX-305 Groove Synth which set my production on track.


I had basically been producing amateur tracks until recently, where I have purchased the software to start making professionally sounding tracks.




Inspirations


Growing up, my biggest inspiration would have been Sash! I honestly think he was a genius in producing Euro style sounds and really got me into Dance music in general.


I am a huge fan of trance music, particularly Epic/Uplifting Trance, getting inspiration from artists such as Armin Van Buuren, Cosmic Gate, Sean Tyas, Paul Van Dyk, and many more. I am also very fond of the older styles of Dance and Club anthems. I am slightly disappointed in the newer styles of House and some Trance songs, but I am still focusing on producing tracks like this.


Also, within the last few years I have gotten myself into Hardstyle, following producers such as Headhunterz, D-Block & S-te-fan, Noisecontrollers, Zatox, Toneshifterz and many more. I think it is a unique style of Dance music, and I have started producing my own hardstyle tracks, and hopefully soon I will be producing some Hard Trance and Hard House tracks also.






Achievements


My biggest achievement to date would have to be winning the Defqon.1 Australia 2012 Producer's Competition. This led me to play a set at the Purple stage during Defqon.1, which was a fantastic experience and broke me out from a private DJ into the club scene!


I have since been working hard on productions, and have played at clubs such as Masif Saturdays.


If you would like to hear the winning anthem I produced, and also the set I played during Defqon.1, head over to my SoundCloud account. I have all my latest productions and mixes up there also for your listening pleasure, with many FREE DOWNLOADS!




Vision


It is my vision to be a Dance producer who specialises in all styles of Dance music, making my music more appealing to a broader range of the population. My first project has been the soundtrack I made to the independent movie 'Charity Hurts'. This is only the beginning.


I am now currently working on several new tracks, with a big focus on Trance, Hardstyle and Hard Dance music! Look out for more big things coming from Sexy Simo!
