Bomb The Bass

is Tim Simeon’s project that changed pop culture forever. «Beat Dis» was the first sample based hit scoring the top of the charts worldwide in 1988. For only £500 a DJ became a pop star and ushered in a new age. Over the years the London-based producer worked with artists like Neneh Cherry, Sinead O’Connor and Depeche Mode. After a 14 year work break he finally came back in 2008 and presented new songs with Jon Spencer or Mark Lanegan.
