ONE LOFT | WAY OF ACTING | Avid Toronto | Confessions | Rhetorical Music
YOS is a key proponent of the electronic music scene in Detroit. His style is always fresh and dynamic, representing that quintessential underground sound. His technique is flawless, blending tracks effortlessly to produce a heady mixture of aural sensations conducive to the deeper side of dance music.
YOS' love-affair began in the early nineties inspired by the sound and vibes exploding out of Detroit and New York City. He started throwing events that later earned him the position as music director for some stellar parties, including a nationally acclaimed monthly called «SNAP!». Since then he hasn't stopped. Whether in the studio, the DJ booth, or throwing parties, YOS embodies an undying passion for dance music, constantly evolving and fine tuning his craft.
Co-founding his own imprint in 2012, Slur Records is steadily rising to become a staple in Detroit's underground, showcasing an array of talented artists from all corners of the world.
2015 has seen a change of direction for Simon, focusing on a more melodic, techno sound. This new signature sound from Simon has been supported by names like Laurent Garnier, Sasha, Ritchie Hawtin, Nick Warren, Adriatique, Eelke Kleijn, Petar Dundov, & Chymera, to name a few.
Simon is closing out the year with the launch of his new label and brand, Rhetorical, which will focus on bringing forward thinking House, Techno and Progressive music to North America in a new way.
With Vince Watson, Petar Dundov, Ramon Tapia, and Diynamic’s rising star Sevendoors already confirmed on the release schedule, Rhetorical will certainly be a label to watch for 2016. Rhetorical Radio, a bi-weekly mix show, has already been picked up by DI.fm on the progressive station, and is a showcase of Simon’s flawless technical skills behind the decks.
In the three years since his first release, Simon Doty has established himself as one of the rising young stars in the electronic music world. Known for his exceptional production quality and engineering, Simon has released on some of the biggest labels in the world like Spinnin, and Toolroom, and his tracks have made numerous appearances on BBC Radio 1, and landed in the Top 10 spot in several genres of Beatport 100 charts.
