Get to know about Simple.

This program has the first in a series of features on producers, starting off with Simple.  Simple is based in San Francisco, heads up the netlabel Two Circles Records, and has forthcoming releases on a few labels.  I first heard about him at the recommendation of fellow contributor Shortstack who couldn’t stop listening to his “Casual Sex” release on Two Circles last fall.  I got hooked as well.

Check out his Soundcloud page for more audio and a bunch of free downloads.  The “Fall Around The Cut EP” should be out on Ilian Tape next week or so so look out for that one.  Simple was kind enough to do a little interview also, so read about what makes him tick below.

SNF: Lets set it off with a little introduction, how’d you get into production?

Simple: Well, I have the typical story of my youth being filled with music and etc. Started playing the drums, piano and guitar at a young age, never really took it serious but loved making noise. Growing up around Detroit I was introduced to electronica at a fairly young age and at that age, was specifically, very in to turntabalism. When I was 11 I received one turntable, a mixer and an invisible scratch pickles VHS, so I could learn how to scratch. Goofed around with that for a couple years, got another deck got into Dj’ing more and more, then at about age 18, I just stopped. I became fascinated again with the guitar, this time it would take me overseas to London, where I studied for a bit. I got into production because I needed something to back my guitar. I had always fooled around with production, but in 2005 I really started producing my own tracks. At that point it was all guitar based music. It wasn’t until 2007 that I started producing more electronic oriented music.

Review: Robot Koch – Listen To Them Fade EP (PMC060)


Robot Koch coming out of Berlin just released this stunning EP on Project Moon Circle that’s filled with innovative and quality work.  Fans of the Eskmo sound should definitely look into this one.  Six tracks deep it’s very diverse stylistically, throwing genre to the wind, yet it manages to have a thread of commonality between the compositions that unites the EP.  Personal favorites are “True” and the title cut, but on the whole it’s excellent.  Check this youtube preview below that PMC put together or click the Juno link for full audio previews.
Robot Koch and Project Moon Circle were also kind enough to give away a shortened edit of “True”, check that out below.  Click the down arrow on the right to download this for free. Robot Koch – true_ short edit by robot koch

 

Steppin into Tomorrow with SNF 025 05.03.10 on Dubstep.FM


This episode HI-NRG, strictly for those looking to dance.  I’m all about this heavily syncopated bass music that’s been coming out recently, demonstrated very nicely by Hatcha’s most recent release on Special Branch.  Marcus Visionary has been making this sound for a while now too, expect more info on his recent album release coming soon.
