"Disco Sperm" released on TDR 01. September 1999
My track "Disco Sperm", as released on Santorin rec, got a re-release as MP3 on Tokyo Dawn Records. It's a mixture between Disco and Drum and Bass.


Popkomm 23. August 1999
I've been to Popkomm in Cologne from Thursday to Sunday (19.-22. August). Visited the Rotation party on Friday at Jugendpark, where most German Drum'n'Bass headz and DJ's were present.


Site History 18. June 1999
One time, my dear friend Matthias Betz asked me why I didn't keep all old versions of my homepage, I had no answer. So I started to look for everything that was left and put it all on one page - the "site history", a new section of my Gallery (which is looking nicer than ever now).


Press and Radio coverage 07. May 1999
DJ Lightwood just got an email from Australia yesterday, and please read what Breakspeare from Perth had to say:
"Wondering if I could get a release date on 'Screwdriver'. After playing 'Pulse Code' out for the last three months I'm dying to hear something new from Simon V. 'Pulse Code' is THE MOST underrated track in '99. ..."

Me, as the ultimate authority in .mp3 issues, got featured in the German Newspaper Reutlinger Generalanzeiger.

I also got told by Doormat that:
"... BBC Radio 1: Mary Ann Hobbes (as I think it was) had the One night album as her album of the week and played a few tracks from it...(which I missed)...I only caught the last one she played that night....Pulse Code...anyway, though you might be interested to know that the UK is taking notice!"


Death of Kemistry 27. April 1999
I just heard of the death of DJ Kemistry (one part of Kemistry & Storm) after a car accident. This is a very sad news for me and probably everybody who heard them play or even talked with them. The Drum'n'Bass scene is loosing a unique person and driving force.


Mekka & Symposium 99 07. April 1999
Last weekend I've been to Mekka & Symposium '99. The time there was stressful but I enjoyed meeting up with friends and that little Evosonic live broadcast via mobile phone :-)


Kemi & Storm at the Depot 07. March 1999
Kemistry & Storm blew my head off at the Depot on Saturday ... the venue was completely packed and overcrowded and they were playing only the ruffest and dirtiest tunes ... as for my new productions, some of the tracks are working good on the dancefloor, but I also have some more home-listening oriented tracks coming up, so look out for some little audio bits soon.


Santorin releases as MP3 15. December 1998
.MP3 files are back on my site, listen to the 2 releases on Santorin in full quality! Oh, before I forget it, there's another poem on the philosophy pages, "on my way home" - for all those who are involved in the nightlife business.
I also redesigned some parts of the site, it should load faster now and be more comfortable to navigate. more good news: my CD will be ready before Christmas!


One Night album announced 18. November 1998
I have created a track called "Helden der Stille" for the Beta Tape, which will be out in December on Megahertz. You can listen to an excerpt by clicking on the Beta link, or look at the picture for this track by clicking on the title. The music itself is very experimental and rough, just right to clean your soul.
My CD project is arriving at it's final stage. The music and artwork is done and will go into production phase soon. I hope that it will be available at the end of December or early January. The CD will be titled one night, released under the name Simon V.


New homepage location 21. September 1998
I have a new homepage location. The Internet Agency 21torr thought that my pages and those of my friends are causing too much traffic, and they were not willing to host them anymore for free. So I had to move...
... back at the Kosmic Free Music Foundation... New address: http://vivid.kosmic.org
The Santorin pages have also been detached from my homepage, the new location is www.santorin.de, before we move to our own domain. I'm sorry for all inconveniences.
