On the 2nd day of ADE, on October 16th, Shadow Child will make his appearance at Verknipt’s ADE Special, alongside Joris Voorn, Hot Since 82, Deetron, Friend Within, Edu Imbernon, Guti, Bodhi and many more.
Leading on from his musical success that needs little introduction (String Thing, 23), Shadow Child has also set up his own label with friend Kry Wolf, called Food Music, which provides a home for his and others’ productions. He also hosts a weekly slot on London’s seminal radio station Rinse FM and he’s still been keeping busy as a DJ, too, traveling all over the UK and Europe.
The shadows is where he gets to work, creating bass-heavy house joints that raise the roof from London to Ibiza to San Francisco and everywhere in between. He’s now reveling in the limelight, thanks to his onslaught of firing house music in the last two years. Not long ago, Simon was known by a different pseudonym, working within the electro house sphere – at his peak in the genre he made the decision to hit the reset button and go back to his roots. Neale put the electro sound to one side and shifted his focus to tougher drum’n’bass and hardcore influences (the sounds he grew up on), intertwined with today’s omnipresent four-to-the-floor beats. This resulted in a lethal concoction that has found favour with many of today’s most influential figureheads.
Check out Shadow Child’s banging mix full of house, garage and the odd classic here and there. Enough to get your ADE juices flowing.
