New album update!

Well, After a short break I’ve been back at it with refreshed ears… and of the 24+ tracks I’ve made (plus a heap still being arranged), I’ve been deciding on where it should all go.
As you may know, my work fluctuates between dreamy, atmospheric soundtrack-like tracks through to a more disco/house/balearic flavour, and everywhere in between – so it’s been a real challenge to figure out which tracks feel related to the album, and which should be released under my own name or later in the year.
I’m continuing to produce new material as it evolves, so I’m sitting on a pile of tunes here – but only the best will do as this will be a physical release, and the first studio album I’ve done in a while.
I still have some ACE vocalists to reveal to you (all in good time!!)

Also, check out this fantastic artist/designer! Guess who’s on board to do the artwork? ;-)

I hope you’re excited as me about the whole thing :D

Thanks for your patience and have a fantastic weekend <3


March 2016 Mid-tempo mix

I’ve a few gigs lined up this year, from Nottingham to Kuala Lumpur and Ibiza along the way – so let’s get rolling with my mid-tempo guest mix for Puckerlips Now! – A night in Nottingham, where I’ll be playing alongside Acid House legend Trevor Fung, and Matt Orrell, Notttingham, March 24th – event info can be found HERE!

Features unreleased material from my forthcoming release: Copacabasa EP ;-)

March 2016 Mid-tempo mix

Simon Mills AND Napoleon Output

Here’s a rather big news update!

Out now: The 8 track mini-album: OSTs Vol 2: Schools And Colleges

Also Out: The Copacabasa EP as Simon Mills.

Let me explain the two monikers…

… As a DJ, even during my years in Bent, I sometimes found myself in a confusing situation: My studio output varied in BPM/genre to such a degree that when I played out, some crowds anticipated eclectic sets while others expected beefier, more uptempo mixes. I’ve often felt envious of DJs who mix music that reflect the tracks they produce. The crowd knows what they’re getting, the DJ knows what they’re going to play out.

With this in mind, 2015 became a lot of writing, re-thinking and planning.

By separating my music into “Electronica” and “Uptempo”, I’ve redefined my output to reflect what I love playing out in those two worlds. I love playing eclectic sets, I adore soundtracks and music that puts you in another universe… but I also thrive on getting a main room chugging!

So, that’s all sorted then :-)

I have a diary slowly filling up with shows so I’ll keep you posted on my various pages (linked at the bottom).

Meanwhile, you can hear my mixes online, and I’ll be posting new ones regularly. Please note: I’ve removed DJ sets from my Soundcloud but will using my Mixcloud from now on for mixes. Unfortunately Soundcloud often pulls down mixes due to copyright issues, so it was time to join everyone and make the leap.

Happy listening!
