It’s been a bit of a rollercoaster ride when it comes to my involvement in The Simonsound project. What started as a low key thing for Simon and Matt to make weird and interesting electronic inspired sounds, it’s now become something that’s being featured on Radio 1. My involvement has been purely about the scaffolding that supports the creative stuff they are doing - legal, financial, project management, online bits, design. I’ve enjoyed every minute of being involved with what they are doing.
It’s so cool to see the hard work they have both put in finally pay off and for people to start hearing what is truly an amazing record. It’s also nice to be part of a small family of inspiring people - Emily, my girlfriend, designed the covers and labels, and I’m so proud of the process she went through and final artwork, which looks great.
Anyway, enough back slapping. If you haven’t heard the record yet, go here. If you are one of those few people who care about owning it, you can buy it here. I strongly suggest you do buy it, it’s the people who buy this stuff that enable new good things to carry on being made.
