BLWBCK048 | Release Date : Mar 1st, 2014
Tape {66 c.} C20 / Digital

With “Ur Silhouette”, South-Korean producer Sima Kim offers up a 6 track EP filled with down-tempo beats & synths, far from the modern classical & ambient of his previous releases. Featuring New Yorker J▲l▲l S▲l▲▲m on the tense “Then I Could Die Today”, the Spanish rap of Mexican Josué Josué on the hip-hop flavoured “I’ll Lose Every Single Bet”, and the beautiful voice of Gregory Hoepffner on the dubstep influenced “Isolated”, this EP hops genres, mixes scenic collaborators, and succeeds in crossing spheres. It leaves us hoping “Ur Silhouette” is not just a one-time experience for the increasingly prolific Kim.

01. Ur Silhouette – 3:02
02. Then I Could Just Die Today (ft. J▲l▲l S▲l▲▲m) – 2:55
03. You Cast Shadow On My Sky – 2:45
04. I’ll Lose Every Single Bet (ft. Josué Josué) – 3:50
05. Acknowledge – 1:57
06. Isolated (ft. Almeeva) – 3:25

PRESS QUOTES
Flirtant avec l’hypnotisme électro d’Almeeva (au chant sur un morceau) ou même une forme de cloud rap texturé, le Sud-Coréen Sima Kima ouvre de nouveaux horizons au label toulousain BLWBCK, et pas seulement géographiques, avec cet EP qu’on pourrait qualifier de drone post-dubstep. Une jolie surprise à découvrir en exclusivité dans nos pages jusqu’à sa sortie officielle le 1e mars. Venu d’un univers électro-acoustique, le producteur surprend d’emblée en infusant son ambient claire-obscure de beats downtempo, avant de virer électro-hip-hop sur l’habité Then I Could Just Die Today avec le New-Yorkais J▲l▲l S▲l▲▲m au micro, pas loin d’un Thavius Beck soignant sa crise d’épilepsie sur un lit de nuages. Le rap mexicain du cotonneux I’ll Lose Every Single Bet se marie également très bien avec les nappes en suspension du Sud-Coréen, et si l’on avouera malgré notre passion sans borne pour les divers projets de Gregory Hoepffner (aka Almeeva, donc) un léger scepticisme face ses accointances vocales avec James Blake sur Isolated, les parfaits dosages de pulsations tachycardiques et de spleen brumeux d’Acknowledge ou You Cast Shadow On My Sky finissent d’emporter le morceau et laissent augurer du meilleur pour ce changement de cap du musicien. - Indie Rock Mag (Stream of The Day)
For the past several years Sima Kim has established himself as one of the most prolific new acts you can come across. This young, classically trained Korean composer and musician has so far covered it all – electro-acoustic pieces, piano based minimalism, ambient drone, tape experiments and all possible amalgams between them. So when I heard he’s putting a tape through Toulousse’s BLWBCK I expected something in that vein. Surprised is a weak word for what I heard in the promo I was sent.Ur Silhouette is an entirely new side of Kim’s music. Here his neo-classical and ambient work gives place to six delicate rhythm driven pieces. Still atmospheric, still super precise as usual work but very diverse and bold. We got some eclectic hip-hop (“Then I Could Die Today” with J?l?l S?l??m and “I’ll Lose Every Single Bet” with Josué Josué) and dubstep-soaked tnes. All built by micro sounds and simple beats both enshrouded with thick atmospheres. That makes the time spent with Ur Silhouette somehow tense until it finally outbursts and ends with “Isolated”, a killer piece lifted up until the very clouds by the outstanding voice of Gregory Hoepffner (Almeeva), who also mastered the record. Hear Isolated below and reserve a copy because… boy, BLWBCK releases are always selling too fast maybe cuz they know what’s really worth putting out! – Stereofox
