Tech House / Piano House A Toolroom veteran of 15 years and longstanding member of the #ToolroomFamily, Dave Spoon (aka Simon Neale, or the better-known Shadow Child) made his label debut way back in 2005 with his 21st Century EP. Having released an incredible amount of music during his time with Toolroom, he is most known for his massive 2006 hit ‘At Night’ which saw a huge level of physical sales and massive radio support. Eventually being reworked with So Solid Crew’s Lisa Maffia on vocals, turning into ‘Bad Girl (At Night)’.
2012 onwards saw Simon shelve his Dave Spoon identity, creating the Shadow Child alter ego and his own Food Music record label. Having huge success with records such as 23, Climbing (Piano Weapon), Ooh Tune and his remix of AlunaGeorge – ‘Best Be Believing’.
He is a prolific artist and producer in his own right, having remixed records from high-profile artists Robyn, Paul van Dyk & Dizzee Rascal. As well as scoring multiple hit records under the Shadow Child moniker, the time is right to bring the Dave Spoon pseudonym back online. Taking form of ‘Steels’, a refreshingly new, fiery and fun party record that you won’t be able to get out of your head.
Legendary Polish Dance duo Catz ‘n Dogz are on remix duties for this one. The duo bring a refined, Disco-tinged, festival flavour to Dave Spoon’s summer hit, adding a slick groove with an emphasis on the insanely hooky records brass section. Throwing in similar elements such as the brass swells, melodic steel drum hits and the vocal cuts, Catz ‘n Dogz have created a remix that doesn’t stray too far from the original but lives completely in a world of its own.
A cut that has it all, Catz ‘n Dogz has nailed definitely nailed this remix by putting their own spin on the record whilst staying true to the originals fiery but fun feel. For sure, ‘Steels’ is a record you won’t be able to get out of your head.

Producer Simon Neale has been playing with electronic music for years.Growing up listening to synth-pop and early 90’s House, plus going to a secondary school that had an undiscovered TB303 & Juno 60 covered in dust in the music room cupboard, you could say production was inevitable! School assembly’s were never quite the same with House and Breakbeat driven tunes pumping out of the main hall. Nowadays using his ‘Dave Spoon’ alias, Simon is committed to the house scene offering a versatile range of pounding productions. His break came with Mark Knight signing the ‘21st Century’ EP to Toolroom Records in 2004 with instant success and support from the likes of Roger Sanchez, Steve Lawler, Tall Paul and Pete Tong. Since then the lead piano track on his recent ‘Sunrise’ EP for Seamus Haji’s Big Love imprint has been shaking dance floors all over the globe with plays from Deep Dish, Axwell, Steve Angello and Lucien Foort amongst others. Remix work is now pouring in with reworkings for Stealth, Pool e/Cyber, Big Love, Toolroom and co- productions with Cr2’s MYNC project. DJ appearances and guest radio mixes are helping to shape up a place in the DJ booth but above all his commitment to Toolroom Records through 2006 means a string of new original material is on its way to a sound system near you!
