If you like Bonobo, Four Tet, The Cinematic Orchestra, the delicate sounds of Telefon Tel Aviv or the energy and melody of Tycho or Bibio then you’re in for a treat. 

A generous 6 tracks are on this wonderful EP and I couldn’t be happier to have Mr Córdova with us on Cut Records."

HimeHime - Bath Texts

Release Date: 25 August 2017

"Hush Hush is proud to welcome Seattle-based electronic musician HimeHime into the fold with his transportive mini-album 'Bath Texts,' the most personal and accomplished release in the young artist’s already prolific career. 

The alias of Mackenzie Simon, HimeHime began his musical journey with the guitar when he picked up the instrument at the age of eight. His development progressed while working as a children’s guitar teacher as a teenager, playing in his high school’s jazz band, and later jamming out in multiple garage rock bands. Tommy’s Guitar Shop in Everett, Washington offered him a welcome respite from school, providing a home base for lessons as well as the opportunity to mess around with various types of pedals and effects. This growing awareness of sonic manipulation, combined with his lifelong fandom of retro video gaming and video game soundtracks, further cultivated his budding interest in analog electronic sounds and composition. 

His subsequent move into the heart of the city to attend Seattle University found his focus dive into electronic production, a newfound passion heavily swayed by the impactful early works of fledgling bedroom producers Baths, Shlohmo, and Hudson Mohawke. The cramped confines of a college dorm was the birthplace of countless late-night wide-eyed sonic experiments to find new ways to combine his early love of the guitar with his growing obsession with the vast capacities of electronic production. With a multifaceted sonic style that has steadily evolved over the last four years, HimeHime’s stacked back catalog offers glimpses into his bursting sonic imagination, serving up everything from early blockbuster chiptune anthems to shimmery heartbroken vocal-pop ballads to recent forays into aggressive club rhythms. 

HimeHime’s expansive sound reaches new heights on 'Bath Texts,' yielding eight tracks that zone in on a lush fusion of emotive post-rock, glitchy electronics, instrumental hip-hop, and textured downtempo beats. A reflection of his recent post-college shift into adulthood, the release’s title and mood stems from Mackenzie’s tendency to de-stress after work with long baths and messaging friends on his phone. This intimate and relaxing sentiment carries throughout the hypnotic instrumental-heavy release, propelled by HimeHime’s crystalline guitars, enveloping beats, skittering rhythms, wordless ethereal vocals, and rich atmospherics. Along the journey, HimeHime receives guest assistance from three fellow Seattle area electronic producers: WMD on blissful opening track “Contrail,” Hush Hush alum Shelf Nunny on “Rigid,” and lo-fi hip-hop beat producer Mr.Shn on “Influences.” A bold step forward for the constantly growing artist, 'Bath Texts' will be released on August 25th digitally, on cassette tape, and CD, and marks HimeHime’s debut release for Hush Hush Records."

Two Tail & Quiett - Fountains

Release Date: 28 July 2017

"Hush Hush goes for an emotional dive into warm, woozy, vocal-laced disco/house territory with 'Fountains,' a confident 3-track collaboration between Manchester, UK-based DJ/producer Two Tail (Ted Scoltock) and Denver-based producer/vocalist combo Quiett (Sam Leffers and Kevin Hake), due out digitally and on cassette July 28th. 

The two members of Quiett originally connected over a decade ago as high school classmates and budding musicians in Fort Wayne, Indiana. While earlier projects from the pair showcased an evolving fusion of Sam’s love for hip-hop and jazz with Kevin's early forays in emo, folk, and Americana, their re-location to Denver and launch of the Quiett name signals a confident step forward into an effortlessly smooth and romantic vocal house sound. Their first official release finds them teaming up with Two Tail, the emerging 20 year-old DJ, producer, and edit maestro quickly making a name for himself in the underground disco and house community. Together, they’ve seamlessly created a loving and nostalgic ode to a melodramatic dancefloor. 

Hake's vocals showcase a whispery, restrained style that draws the listener close. Leffers and Scoltock share production duties, crafting lush and pulsing instrumentals filled with the kind of suitcase electric pianos, soaring saxophone leads and pillowy atmospherics you'd expect from a late 70s lounge record. Over the release’s three standout original cuts, Two Tail and Quiett consistently display a mature, sophisticated, in-the-pocket groove, enhanced with a touch of laid-back stoicism. 

All three musicians are part of the Outsourced Collective, a group founded by Scoltock and fellow Manchester native Aleks Zurawski that brings together a diverse range of blossoming international artists creating emotional, restrained sounds free of strict genre confines. This all-embracing mentality finds a kindred spirit within the labor-of-love, DIY ethos of Seattle’s Hush Hush Records."
