Last month BDK supported Simo Soo’s self titled LP launch at Blackwire, and since then the two have decided to continue working together, musically inspiring one another in the process. Recently the two artists came together to create a unique soundtrack for Ears Have Ears, consisting of all new tracks and fresh takes on old unreleased tracks, meshing them together to create one continuous piece.
Finding middle ground between Simo Soo’s noise punk rap party mix and BDK’s laid back rap and electro, mutual influences such as chip-tune, dubstep, pop, noise, witch-house, rave and 90’s gangsta rap are also been mixed into this eclectically chaotic piece. BDK and Simo recorded this 11 minute soundtrack in just two sittings over 4 hours.
Simo Soo first began performing and recording solo during his time fronting now defunct noise/punk band Call the Medic, Call The Nurse! in 2008. Simo’s music is a mix of DIY punk aethetics fused with modern hip hop and dance production by way of everything from noise to IDM to autotune pop.
During his musical journey he has already released 5 EPs, 2 LPs and one mixtape made of new material and remixes through Lesstalk Records. Playing shows across Australia, USA and Spain with acts such as Collarbones, The Laurels, Kirin J Callinan, Abe Vigoda, XBXRX, Rat vs Possum, Captain Ahab, Big A little a and more.
Big Dumb Kid is an emerging DIY electronic producer who will be one to watch in the coming new year. BDK creates a popular blend of genuine lyrics on a backdrop of catchy melodies and lucid beats. With his debut self titled LP underway, we’re keen to see how BDK evolves in the coming months.
Big Dumb Kid and Simo Soo will be joining us live in the studio this Sunday night to chat to us all about their new collaborative piece, so be sure to tune into Ears Have Ears on FBi Radio 94.5 FM from 9pm with your host Brooke Olsen.
