Simon Baker

DJ/producer Simon Baker has enjoyed a steady ascent to international fame in the past couple of years through a slew of infectious releases on high-profile labels, countless global tour dates, and a firm grasp on what makes people get down on a dance floor. As a DJ in the '90s Leeds and London club scenes, Baker honed his skills on the decks while warming up a decade's worth of clubgoers for his future incarnation as a producer. His big break came in 2004, when debut track "The Liptrick" made it out on Ralph Lawson's esteemed 2020 Vision Recordings and ended up on compilation mixes by the likes of Damian Lazarus and Tiefschwarz.

These days, Baker is one of the most sought-after DJ/producers in the international house and techno scenes, with critically acclaimed releases on top labels like Cocoon, Get Physical, and his own imprint, Infant. As a DJ, Baker is a regular fixture at some of the world's top electronic dance music venues, including Watergate and Panorama Bar in Berlin, Fabric in London, and Space in Ibiza, though his global meanderings also take him across Australia, Asia, and the Americas. Join Mr. Baker for a taste of the electronic dance music Zeitgeist when he performs at Grass this Friday.
