When we receive a remix of a song that we don’t initially recognize, our first move is generally to pull up the original for compare and contrast purposes. This is a fruitful process that shines light on the remixer’s creative process and often introduces us to new artists. Unfortunately, this was not the case when we visited with Laura Welsh and her unravelling talent. Luckily, we have Joey Butler aka Kid Simple to right the wrong and solve the mystery of exactly who OK’d the original. All hate aside, it’s difficult to imagine getting sick of the Smpl treatment. Butler’s work is just so voluminous and engrossing. It’s virtually impossible to avoid getting wrapped up in the warm, yet distant blanket that is a Kid Smpl track and, really, why would you ever want to.
