After fifteen years releasing on Ram, he began to develop the ethos behind Audioporn. Shimon wanted to capitalise on artists that understood the true nuances of music, pushing forward newcomers who knew what small steps it took to shape the overall feel of a track. Looking back at what the label has achieved over ten years, it’s easy to see this reflected in Audioporn’s output. And it signals another stepping stone in Shimon’s historic climb, one documented religiously throughout drum and bass. His influence has seeped into its every page, meaning Shimon’s identity has become synonymous with the genres... Which is why decades on, he’s still one of its key players.
