Mr. Simmonds

Working in the liminal spaces between electronic and hip-hop music, Jamie (Mr.) Simmonds does much more than craft songs: he carves out sonic journeys worth revisiting again and again. Richly textured samples meet scampering beats along the way, plush synths form the perfect pocket for boom-bap loops, and before you know it, you find yourself deep in the wilderness of your mind. A Millennium Award-winning producer, audio engineer, and DJ, Jamie has worked with labels like NTone/Ninja Tune, K7, and Crammed/SSR, as well as artists like Alison Goldfrapp and Pressure Drop.

Additionally, Jamie has earned accolades in the theatre and original soundtrack worlds, working extensively with Baba Brinkman on a range of critically acclaimed projects such as the The Rap Guide to Human Nature, The Rap Guide to Evolution, and The Canterbury Tales Remixed. From writing original music for each show to manning the decks for performances from Egypt to Australia, Jamie is unparalleled at using sound to tell stories.
