Music has always been part of Freakon's life, aka Simone Barbatano. During his teens, he was devoted to rock and hip hop.
Not login after he discovered the harder styles and got addicted.
After attending "Feestfabriek - 10 Years of Q-Dance", which was his very first festival, Simone was instantly hooked during the closing set by the mixing techniques of Noize Suppressor, Endymion, Evil Activites & Outblast.
In 2012 Simone began mixing and started showcasing these mixes under the name of "One Simk" to the "Shock" public (notorious Italian club in the hard scene).
In 2014 he won a Neophyte Records contest, remixing Kasparov - Infected by madness. The Scottish label, Darkside Unleashed, recognized his talent in creating innovative sounds and released a new EP called "Destroying You".
As a lucky break, his production stumbled their way into the hands of Andy The Core and F-Noize and not long after Onesimk's EP started receiving strong approval by artists like Partyraiser, Miss K8, Destructive Tendencies.
After releasing an EP with Partyraiser Records, Onesimk was greeted with bookings at the Footwoorx parties in Germany and Belgium.
In 2015, when his career kicked off to a flying start, Onesimk's releases such as "Dopeness" with Andy The Core and the Army of Hardcore 2015 Anthem had a huge positive impact on the scene.
The real breakthrough was in 2016, when he knocked at the Traxtorm Records door. Thanks to The Stunned Guys mentorship he fine tuned his style and found an identity more aligned with his personality: Freakon.
Freakon sound goes beyond mundane kicks and trivial patterns, he thrive to produce music packed with emotions, dynamic elements to nurture the dancefloor's need of raving. His violent mainstream high - powered act kicks any crowd into party - mode.
