ITAI SIMON - Musician
Producer, Arranger, Composer, Bassist & Recording Session Artist.
I was born on December 9th, 1979, in Israel. My true love for music began at the age of 10, inspired by the psychedelia of early Pink Floyd recordings. I played solely on the electric guitar up until the age of 17 when I have found my true calling... the BASS!
In the past, i was a member of a couple of rock bands: The Relics (1998), Utopia (1998-2001), Missing Points (2001-2004), The Butterfly Effect (2004-2006) and Sugar Plum Baby (2005-2009), to name a few.
I studied music extensively for 4 years at "Rimon - School of Jazz and Contemporary music", under the tutelage of some of the top musicians around.
My major release to date is with my band Rendezvous. Our album "Another Round Please" received excellent reviews from the press and numerous plays on the radio, especially in the UK, as well as the rest of Europe. The album comes hot on the heels of some significant club chart success; the first two singles from the album "C Sharp" and "The Murf", were ranked high within the Top 40 club charts, and stayed there for weeks as DJs John Digweed, Nick Muir, Carl Cox, Loverush UK and Timothy Allan all contributed their remixes to these two singles. I also had the honor to work with the legendary producer Dave Bascombe (Tears for Fears, Depeche Mode, Kylie Minogue) who mixed the album. Now we are working towards our second album.
In recent years I have produced, arranged and recorded bass for various artists and projects worldwide in many styles and genres, from rock to pop, and from blues to electronica. During this time I have gathered around me a serious team of esteemed musicians, including professional recording session players, sound engineers, and my personal contact list consisting of A&Rs, music publishers, online bloggers, magazine editors and radio editors all around the world.
