Simon’s new-age touch on “A Little Respect” introduces lighter pitch-perfect tenors in lieu of original vocalist Andy Bell’s iconic falsetto delivery. The new rendition covers Bell’s catchy lyrics and slaps an electro house groove that turns the page on the 1988 single from synth-pop ubiquitous hit to an EDM main stage contender.
Since expanding his brand beyond his former moniker as DJ Martial, Simon continues to develop his own distinct sound bridging his love of 80s synth-pop with deep electro. Simon’s previously released funky nu-disco cover of “Let’s Hear It For The Boy” became a summer anthem just in time for nightclubs to reopen earlier this year.
Simon spent the last two decades performing across the country. During quarantine, he pivoted from working as both a DJ and booking agent to focus on his production career and launching his own label, GET SET Records. Simon plays a current remixed electronic style. His music maintains a unique ability to stay true to the roots of the dance floor by infusing classics with today’s electronic sounds, creating a g-house, deep bass, and electro-pop vibe. Pleasing any crowd can only be described as his proverbial sixth sense.
