Sim Hutchins, a producer and video artist from North West Essex UK, releases his debut album ’I Enjoy To Sweep A Room’.
Though it stylistically references techno, IDM and ambient-drone, the album could be said to be genre-blind, avoiding any easy classification. It takes an outsider approach to composition, channelling the uncompromising visionistic electronics of Actress, the disintegrating drones of William Basinksi, the cosmic synthwork of Hieroglyphic Being and Jandek's propensity for atonal experimentalism. ‘I Enjoy To Sweep A Room’ is firmly the work of an artist operating on the peripheries of the medium.
The result is nothing difficult or introverted however, but instead an optimistic and romantic album, a rare example of content, form and concept perfectly complementing each other. It is a work defined by the delay of typical gratification and the build of a tense emotional atmosphere across the nine tracks. Washed in reverb and draped in hiss, beats balance precariously on the stresses of atypical rhythmic patterns. Sim creates harmony from unpredictable melodic twists and centring tracks around the repetition of dissonance, the direct result of manipulating outdated effects units and budget equipment; AM radios, DIY guitar pedals and bad 80s digital reverbs.
Hutchins cut his production teeth last decade in and around the grime scene, working with MCs and playing Essex pirate radio and East Anglian free parties. After time the collectivity of this approach gave way to a retreat into experimenting with music-making in a more introverted way, focusing on developing longer form tracks and writing towards a debut album. He came to No Pain In Pop's attention via a cryptic Twitter account he ran sometime around early 2013, and released his debut Ecology Tapes EP in early 2015.
