Simon Singleton, Manager, Pure Groove

Simon joined Pure Groove in 2003 and since has helmed the shop’s musical output, from starting as a buyer and sourcing independent 7″ releases right through to overseeing the company’s labels and looking after all events in-store at the bigger store, which recently has included The Futureheads, a Kitsune party, Blur movie screenings and an unannounced DJ set from Erol Alkan.

Over the years, Simon has overseen various other projects for Pure Groove, including a deal with Nokia, curating stages for festivals such as the 1234 and The Great Escape and is currently working on new plans for the company.
