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.
