‘The Eighth Note’ is 8 quick Questions with Wellington Musicians.

A chance for us to catch up with people & see what they’re up to, or introduce you to a new musician/band and their music.

Today’s guest is Kapiti Coast Hip-Hop artist, and No Problemos member, Simloco.


Who are you? Tell us a bit about your music:
I’m a musician from the Kapiti Coast lately focusing on creating hiphop with a twist. Following up from a successful few years with The No Problemos, a couple of us having started our latest endeavour under Simloco. Creating beats and writing raps in a home studio, we trust the process and make music with no expectation.

What have you been working on lately? Any new tracks or albums on the way?
We’ve been working hard on an album for the last year or so, ready for release in October. We’re putting a lot of focus on getting some visuals together and are looking forward to getting some new music out there to the people.

Where is the best place people can follow you & find your music?
We’ve got a few clips on YouTube, some songs on SoundCloud but will be sure to get the release on Spotify, Apple Music etc.

What were the 3 most influential albums to you growing up?
Californiacation – Red hot chilli peppers
1999 – Joey Badass
Uprising – Bob Marley

Which other Wellington musician (s) would you most like to work with?
Drax Project, Louis Baker.

What’s your favourite Wellington venue to play in?
Bring back Bodega! 😉

In your songwriting or composing (or the band’s songwriting) how do the compositions and songs take shape?
My homie Dusty Miller aka Tim Calkin is a beat making mistro and we’ve been making music together since day one. Often we’ll sit down, get inspired and make something from scratch. In the ideal situation we’ll get the bones of a track in an evening and let it work itself together from there.

Where/when is your next gig?
Playing with SkyCanvas in October at San Fran. We’ll be doing a local headline show in Kapiti and again in October for the album release.
