Career[edit]

In the beginning of 1990, Jens Thele, who then worked for Edel Records, offered Simon a publishing deal at Warner Chappell/Loop Dance Construction.[2] Later Jens Thele founded the Label Kontor Records[3][circular reference] together with Simon's later band colleagues H.P. Baxxter and Rick J. Jordan. Thele signed a couple of Simon's productions. One was the project Shahin & Simon,[4] who went on Scooter's[5] 'Age of Love' Tour as support act in 1997.

In 2006, Simon officially joined Scooter after working successfully as a music producer and DJ since 1988. He was resident DJ in several clubs in Hamburg. The most known one is Opera House, where he started his DJ career. He also had some major hits with his friend Jerry Ropero, an icon in the worldwide house music scene. They worked for most of the known music labels under several pseudonyms like Combo Cubano.[6]

Simon is the owner of three record labels: Aversion Records,[7] Superlovemusic,[8] and Efectiva Records,[9] where he supports young artists.

His work with Scooter includes The Ultimate Aural Orgasm, Jumping All Over The World, Under The Radar Over The Top, The Big Mash Up, Music for a Big Night Out, The Fifth Chapter,[10] Ace and Scooter Forever.
