Shimon Alcoby, known simply as Shimon, is an English drum and bass DJ and producer. Shimon has enjoyed a good relationship with key d’n’b label RAM Records, releasing on it regularly from 1994. This is some achievement, as RAM is generally attributed with popularizing the genre the world over, with Shimon being a key part of that movement. Shimon’s success can even be measured by chart success, with the 2002 collaboration with RAM boss Andy C, ‘Body Rock’, reaching number 28 in the mainstream chart.
Shimon has also been very active outside of music production and DJing, with him going on to establish the label AudioPorn Records in 2007, which acts a platform for like minded artists. Alcoby is also helping fuel the music production community by contributing sounds to Novation’s Xio Synth.
Shimon is one of the key drum and bass mainstays, and with good reason.
