Kid Smpl – alias of 22-year-old Seattle electronic producer Joey Butler – returns with the latest evolution of his signature take on atmospheric bass music with the brand-new Escape Pod EP. Four new tracks plunge listeners into a hypnotically cinematic world that pair ghostly vocal samples with lush synths, immersive low-end tones, complex drumwork, and washed-out ambient textures. Accompanying the four original tracks is a cerebral, euphoric dancefloor remix from San Francisco’s D33J, a blossoming member of the Wedidit Collective. Escape Pod marks the inaugural release from Hush Hush Records, and also sets the stage for Kid Smpl's forthcoming debut LP, scheduled for release by the label later this year.
Already receiving love from XLR8R, The FADER, No Fear in Pop, Big Up Magazine, Dipped in Dollars, The 405, The Soul Electronic, The Stranger, City Arts, Seattle Weekly, and more!
Run by KEXP DJ Alex Ruder, Hush Hush Records is dedicated to curating an emotional and introspective sound that's free of specific genre boundaries and ideal for headphone sessions, late-night travels and intimate encounters.
