Simenon, an Englishman of Malaysian origin, born in London in 1968 and currently living in Prague. Simenon was a Dj at the Wag club when he decided to attend a studio-engineering course. His first record "Beat Dis" was the product of the studio trickery he learnt during the course and samples from a bag full of records. The timing was perfect with the general public getting customed to the flavour of "homemade" dance records like M/A/R/R/S - "Pump Up The Volume". The Thunderbirds sampling "Beat Dis" reached number 2 in the UK charts in February 1988.
Tim Simenon has since produced tracks for artists like
Neneh Cherry (Buffalo Stance), Adamski (Killer), Seal (Crazy), and also worked closely with Depeche Mode, Björk and Naomi Campbell amongst others.
