Boomkat Product Review:
"Hush Hush Records present Skylight, the debut album from Seattle-based electronic producer Joey Butler aka Kid Smpl. From the cinematic opening tones of “Distanced” to the closing isolated beauty of “Left There,” Skylight unfolds itself as a complete immersion into an emotional spectrum rarely captured in electronic music, a beautifully woven landscape of hazy futuristic melancholy and atmospheric bass bliss. Otherworldly yet grounded, spacious yet busy, dark yet hopeful, Skylight is primed to deliver the full Kid Smpl experience to audiences worldwide. Inducted into the 2013 Red Bull Music Academy, Butler had a busy summer with the release of the Escape Pod EP and its complimentary remix collection Dope Pac SE, two performances at Decibel Festival, a pair of heart-breaking bootleg remixes of Lianne La Havas and Jhene Aiko, and now the completion of his long-awaited first LP."
