about

Intoxicating dreamscape electro sounds by British producer Thomas Whitfield aka Simple Eyyes. “River Cities” is his debut album consists of myriads of beautifully layered sounds. Whitfied usually starts out using one instrument which is normally an acoustic guitar, and just follows his instinct from there with much “accidents”.
Imperfections - the hiss and mistakes are inevitable to his music which makes “City Rivers” sound so special.
Includes a remix track by female Tokyo techno producer 34423 (Miyoshi Fumi).

■Profile

In the words of multi-instrumentalist Thomas Whitfield (simple eyyes) “it starts with one instrument, normally an acoustic guitar and from there everything else is backing that sound. I like the imperfections, the hiss, the mistakes. Without those, the songs would have less identity”.
Hailing from Birmingham and Classically playing drums in bands since 15 enjoying success with distophia and calories,"I think music has always helped me stay focused".
His ideals of music progressed as he aged and now in his early 30's pushing himself into production and on to a whole new path.
His first personal project, Thomas said about the process “I started making electronic music as I was getting tired of the formula of a practice room. The ideas of loops and having control of every element of the song appeal to me”. City Rivers is the first album from simple eyyes and only the start of a completely new chapter.

イギリス在住の音楽プロデューサーThomas Whitfieldのソロプロジェクト。マルチプレイヤーでありながら、アコースティックギターをはじめとする、一つの楽器から音を重ね、その時偶然鳴ったヒスノイズやミステイクにその曲の個性を見いだしすべての要素を自分でコントロールできることに新たなる魅力を感じて電子音楽家としてのキャリアをスタートさせる。今作の『City Rivers』は彼の新たなるプロジェクトの序章にすぎない。
