PHIL SIMPSON

TECH DIRECTOR

I got into the music scene at an early age when I blew up and then electrocuted myself with a valve amp I was trying to fix. From this point I was fixed. In the 90's I realised that I could get paid to drink beer if I spun a few records in between pints. I bought more DJ gear as my desire for more pints increased. Lockdown was harsh, and so I took to streaming so I could drink beer with a valid reason where I was introduced to The Beat Forum. Promoted to Gaffa in August 2021 due to my fine knowledge of beer and the ability to plug an XLR lead into the right socket (most of the time).
