Ian Simmonds presents his new album "The right side of kind" on Goldmin Music. Ian Simmonds is one of the most creative Nu-Jazz/Downtempo producers of the last 20 years. Although these words can't describe his music properly as the man is always looking for an innovative sound that could cross the boundaries of musical styles. The Welsh-born found his inspiration in music from all over the world and his songs don't only express one clearly defined feeling. They are more of a subtle mix of emotions that let the listener interpret it his way. As Ian said himself: "I think there's a lot of beauty in melancholy". For example, he spent over a year living in a castle in Germany to record his last album " The Burgenland dubs" in a solitary atmosphere where he could really think, breathe, make a plan. That's the point, Ian is always re-thinking things over, looking for a new source of inspiration which results in a constant evolution. He had the chance to collaborate both with amazing musicians like Goldfrapp and electronic music heads like Mathias Kaden, Soulphiction, Krause Duo.. 6 years after his last album, this long-awaited new LP sees the man getting back to his jazzy roots along irresistible moments of innocence, a slice of drama floating over a typical sound signature that only Ian knows the secret of. This whole life experience and amazing devotion to his music results in an outstanding album, proper Simmonds style in a quite evolving way. this is not just a collection of tunes that go along well.. This is a long-player album in the truest sense of the word. "The right side of kind" is a personal journey. A fully conscious, almost subversive work of art that could be dedicated to the eternal dreamers, the black sheep only able to do something their own way, able to feel beauty and singularity in almost everything, even in the less significant details of daily routine despite the complexity and nonsense of the world we live in. Ian gets to express himself in the most spontaneous and poetical way possible, as if he was thinking out loud, straight from the heart through a finely-shaded, nearly subliminal speech. There is absolutely no certainty in this LP, not more than into this artist. Only a lot of relevant queries, a permanent questioning and this humility could be heard all along the album. That's why the right side of kind is the kind of pieces you want to listen to from the beginning to the end, which constantly rethinks itself, where every single bar, every note is essential.. It keeps on surprising you, bringing you from the airport's high riser to the hill, from a state to another, from being burned to a new a beginning.. Yeah, a journey indeed. This is the right side of kind. Credits: All words, music, production, arrangements and mix by Ian Simmonds. Horn arrangements and solos by Martin Rudloff.
