A fitting sequel to 2011’s similarly themed ‘Planetary Communication’ EP, Simon/off will return to Bristol’s Phuture Shock Musik in January 2014 with his ‘Molecules’ release.
Since dropping that last twelve, the Austrian bass don has kept himself busy honing the sound of his intelligent take on bass music, most recently demonstrated with remixes for upcoming Mexican producers Mama Testa and Thark, as well as taking time to offer up fresh material on his co-owned Disko404 label; including the warmly received ‘Take It Back’ EP and introducing the junglist-laden footwork experiments of new Sun People side project. ‘Molecules’ finds him continuing his current dalliance with 4/4 tempos and versatile broken rhythms, whilst further pushing the envelope within the far-reaching ‘Bass music’ sub-genre, absorbing inspiration from the future-minded output of legendary D&B institutions like Reinforced and Metalheadz, right through to 90’s Detroit en route the fertile grounds of Bristol.
Take a listen below, the EP includes a Digital Only bonus track ‘From A To B’. Out January 20!
