This week’s playlist of the week is Simon Irvine’s Simon’s Mini Monster. Simon, aka Stuffamebobs, is an artist in Brisbane signed to Pink Dolphin Music, an indie label based in West Bromwich, in the UK. Simon’s also a member of the Climatronica Collective, a group of musicians and producers who are concerned about climate change and fundraising jointly with an album to support the charity Solar Aid.
Simon’s/Stuffamebobs’ music is electronic, synthy and occasionally moody; do check out his latest album Metaphors, which came out on 8th January – I think you’ll like it if you enjoy my music. My favourite track from the album (so far) is Pursuit, which sits at the sonic junction between trance and synthwave, but a close second is the ambient chillout track Birds – Crest of the Syndicate.
Simon’s Mini Monster playlist is a smaller collection of tracks by artists who feature on a much larger playlist, known as the ‘Monster List’. (I think I can see what he did there!) All artists featured are independent (or with indie labels). There may be a couple of Stoneygate tracks that have snuck in towards the end.
