Simon Mattson

DJ, producer and promoter who worked very hard over the last ten years to gain his reputation and become one of the most influential and talked about people on polish clubbing scene. From early years thanks to his dedication and passion for music he grew his skills from being a local dj to become one of the residents for the most important and prestigious clubs in Poland ‘1500m2’ and the summer place ‘Temat Rzeka’. He shared decks with big names in music industry such as Loco Dice, Nic Fanciulli, Oxia, Robert Dietz, Guy Gerber or mighty Pete Tong.

Local fame and DJing itself was never his priority. Investing all his time and efforts into development of his production skills was the key element of his current success. First breakthrough came after winning an international Beatport remix contest of Oxia ‘Harmonie’ track. Not only he won a release on Agoria’s InFine Music but his remix turned to be one of their bestselling tracks for over the year leading to its re release on the ‘InFine Beatportdecade Techno’ compilation alongside tracks from industry big guns like Carl Craig, Dominik Eulberg, Avatism or dOP.

Although the competition was a breakthrough it was no coincidence. Before that Simon has released his music on world renowned and legendary labels including Strictly Rhythm, Lo:Rise (Defected sublabel), Rebirth or Night&Day Ibiza Music. Add a collaboration for Italy Moxa Club with one of the most iconic house producers Sandy Rivera aka Kings Of Tomorrow and you have a straight recipe of his success.

Currently Simon Mattson is linked to the fast growing Re:Fresh Your Mind (R|Y|M) imprint and its head honcho’s Skai and Gorge known from 8bit Records in collaboration with Nick Curly. This truly feels like home and no wonder, he is one of the family now releasing alongside Emanuel Satie, David Keno, Markus Homm, Michai Popoviciu, Mario Aureo and of course Gorge.

In 2015 Simon has released an EP for R|Y|M with a stellar remix from DJ Le Roi. Next came 2 remixes, first invitation from Spanish label ExpMental Records and the second one due for the release in August from Bondage Music, where you can find artists like El Mundo, Mihai Popoivicu, Tuccillo, Karmon or NTFO. Just after when he delivered remixes the labels invited him to play at one of their events during Off Week Barcelona alongside label artists. During the same summer, Simon also took part in the biggest worldwide DJ Competition ‘Burn Residency Ibiza 2015’ and found himself in top 5 finalists. During the competition he had a chance to show his skills at clubs such as Sankeys Ibiza, Vista (Privilege) and Lips Restaurant in Playa den Bossa where he was warming up for Darius Syrossian, Sante and Sidney Charles at the ‘Do Not Sleep’ pre-party.
