Midnight In A Perfect World: Kid Smpl

Local Music, Midnight In A Perfect World
Alex Ruder

Seattle native Joey Butler (a.k.a. Kid Smpl) has been constantly evolving his atmospheric and immersive style of abstract electronic music over the past five years, shifting away from a more tranquil and atmospheric sound for a more visceral and physical aesthetic. Now based in San Francisco, Kid Smpl recently unveiled his sophomore full-length album, Privacy, earlier this month, marking his latest cutting-edge release for Kastle's Symbols label. His exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World is a magnificent deep dive into his progressive, futuristic, dystopian sonic world, woozily blending a handful of songs from his new album alongside equally enveloping tracks by fellow contemporary experimental producers such as Tim Hecker, Kuedo, Roly Porter, Sangam, Eaves, and WWWINGS.

It involves friends, music, an isolated region, heroin, grief and rampant commercialism. It's the story of talent lost too soon before its time, and of the musicians who gathere…
