Simon SMTHNG celebrated his birthday yesterday—ahh, happy belated, sir!—and decided he’d give us all a gift rather than wait on us to give him something. I can definitely dig that mentality, and I know you will, too, once you hear his latest instrumental joint, “the 23rd.” Here’s a track that’s so rich with bass and slinks by so gracefully that you could probably listen to for hours without even realizing it. Typically, that’d be a shot at a song for not doing enough or simply being boring. That’s not the case with “the 23rd”; it’s a well-executed, bass-heavy piece of music that splits the difference between the “beat scene” and ambient music. More of this, please, Mr. SMTHNG.
