«Kid Simpl» - biography, albums, songs, video clips
Kid Smpl is the current alias of 22-year-old Seattle producer Joey Butler. A veteran of stage and studio, Butler has been busy developing a style of atmospheric bass music that continues to deepen with each release. His signature sound incorporates lush synths, meditative low-end, muffled vocals samples, and warm textural field recordings, punctuated by drums that straddle every end of the tempo spectrum. The sounds are spread across a canvas made wide with breathing room. Briefly put, it evokes the introspection of a far-flung space colony’s forest terrarium, late into the evening, alone or with close company. After a string of successful releases showcasing this style, Butler is gearing up for his first full-length, to be released on the newly-conceived Hush Hush music label. The album promises to provide a fully realized picture of Butler as a producer, articulating the hazy future vision he has been praised for on numerous EPs, tracks, and remixes released to date.
