Sinistarr is one of the leaders of the dance music new school, a triple-threat as a DJ/Producer/serial Remixer who’s as well known for his forward-thinking beats as he is for nightclub domination. Representing Detroit, Sinistarr’s attacking both headphones and dancefloors for 2015.

If you know drum and bass you know Sinistarr as a respected junglist who’s dropped heavyweight tracks over the years on Goldie’s Metalheadz imprint, Doc Scott’s 31 Recordings, Hospital Records, Architecture Recordings and Renegade Hardware. Recently though, the man’s been everywhere, applying his signature style to diverse sounds like footwork, techno and house with releases and remixes on SMOG, Tectonic, Human Elements, Seclusiasis, Juke Trax, and Loose Squaresthat show himmoving beyond dance music conventions and constantly reaching out to a new audience. He’s even joined on as a member of the seminal group Urban Tribe, a team led by Drexciya member Stingray313 who boasts Carl Craig, Moodymann, and Anthony ‘Shake’ Shakirasother contributors.

From gigs at South By Southwest in Austin, Ohm (Tresor) in Berlin, and the blue lagoons of Iceland, Sinistarr’s been licking the envelope lately, and publications like URB, Vibe, Resident Advisor and Complex Magazine are taking note–he is out in front.

Beastie Boys – Ill Communcation. That’s where it started. That’s where Dave Simon really” heard” music for the first time. The world was split open and all this music started pouring in – The Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers, and other big beat artists. The harder big beat sound spilled into a love for punk, and then punk to ska. Followed by the jam bands: Phish and Moe and the NEW DEAL. He started seeing the same tribe of people show up for these gigs over and over and realized he was part of a strong community that rallied around music. Music began to have a bigger purpose in the context of community, something that was way beyond commercial music experiences.

Cut to San Francisco: the underground EDM scene and Burning Man. These tribes gave Dave a place and support to expand, not just with music but out there, in the world. He stepped out from behind-the-scenes event production to stepping behind the decks DJing, making his first appearance at Vessel – an all-night dance event that took place on an aircraft carrier.
