SIMON GAG

DECADES OF electronic music for the brave

About Simon

Simon Gag was born in the 70's, grew up in the electro era of the 80's and 90's. He started making music in the late 80's and released his first record in 1989. From then he's released about 30 records on different labels and under different names. He's also been remixing alot of other artists, Sofia Talvik, Basswood Dollies and Babalou Smith to mention a few.

His first love when it comes to electronic music was the forefront figures of the 80's with bands like Depeche Mode, Yazoo, Front 242, Fad Gadget, the early works of Human League as well as the emergence of the original techno overlords like Juan Atkins and Derrick May.

In the early 90's he and his childhood friend Toby started a label called "Candy Cane Exploitations", working with Prime distribution in London. Some really great sounds came out of that label. The label was put on hold in the year 2000 only to be revived seven years later with a fantastic release by Electrotom (one of Simon Gags many aliases, this act is together with Toby).

During 2006 Simon founded a new label called "Revival records of Sweden", a label totally dedicated to acid, acid house and the old school sound. The label released tracks by Simon Gag, Ziaskell, Computer Controlled, Toby and the space girls and Electrotom. The label was put to rest in 2010, when it had served it's purpose.

Simon Gag has also been DJ:ing since the early 90's, playing gigs in Sweden, Denmark, The United States and Italy.

In 2012 Simon Gag started the label Devilbeat. The main focus of Devilbeat is techno and acid music. Devilbeat is opened to everyone that has the suitable philosophy towards the music they're creating. So keep on making electronic music for the brave, for decades yet to come. Simon Gag surely will.
