Martial Simon, previously known as DJ Martial, has released his second single “Let’s Hear It For The Boy” cementing his emerging role as producer and label owner. The infectious cover debuted on Hollywood Hamilton's RT30 show, which is syndicated on over 150+ stations across North America. Martial Simon spent quarantine pivoting from working as both a DJ and booking agent, to focusing on his production career and launching his own label. The New York-based artist spent the last two decades performing across the country under his DJ Martial moniker, and has been profiled in outlets like Page 6, Daily News, US Weekly, and Wall Street Journal. “Let’s Hear It For The Boy” is out now via his newly-minted label GET SET Records, which Simon founded as a new avenue to showcase music he believes in. Instead of securing bookings for DJs as their agent, Simon will continue championing talented artists by signing them under the wing of his own brand. Check out a quote from Simon below and under that stream his new single!
My music taste really drove the purpose of this song. I love old records; but also, I’m a huge fan of today’s music scene, and that was the vision for “Let’s Hear It for the Boy.” What developed is an energetic dance cover of the #1 billboard hit from 1984 (in the movie “Footloose”) that’s infused with 2021-style sound. By focusing on strong vocals and a catchy beat, I aimed to stay true to the original while making it blend into today’s music culture.” — Martial Simon
