about

Originally released as one side of a split C60 on Joe Shakespeare's Ecology Tapes label in 2015, 'Ecology', the debut EP from Sim Hutchins sees it's first official digital release via No Pain In Pop. 
Showcasing his more Ambient-leaning productions, the tape served as an introduction to the hand-crafted Electronica sound that preceded Hutchins' debut LP on No Pain In Pop in 2015, as well as featuring full versions of demos that sparked the ongoing artist-label relationship. From the muted Trance-like introduction of 'Don'tListen2UrHawt', to the imploded Grime of 'Silk Road Hand Grenade', the Essex-born artist shamelessly flirts with genre & tropes, whilst never fully committing (Essex boys eh?). Subjecting a limited palette of foundation sounds (namely from the Casio CZ1000) to relentless analogue processing, large swathes of distortion and reverb penetrate through thick soundscapes and writhe against repeated sequences, although any illusion of minimalism in these dense and complex compositions is quickly dismissed.

The more discernible listener may mind reference to Hutchins' idol-worship of Vladislav Delay, Autechre and Eno, and the more perceptive reader may gaze upon the lyrics of Soulja Boy, a collective name for producers/directors/screenwriters blacklisted for communist inclination, and titles of various poorly-produced (and ultimately futile) self help videos on YouTube.
