New York based hip-hop producer Blockhead aka Tony Simon has been active since 1999 and is well known for his celebrated work with Aesop Rock and solo releases on Ninja Tune. On November 18th, 2014 he will self-release his sixth studio album, Bells and Whistles. The album continues his proven techniques of exquisite beat making with methodically arranged samples, all the while being fluid and experimenting with new tempos and genre flavors.
"I strive to make music that will hopefully stand the test of time. Whether that happens remains to be seen but I feel as though simplicity is underrated sometimes. And simplicity never goes out of style." Simon states. Bells And Whistles is an elaborate mosaic of what has, and continues to make Blockhead a visionary artist and respected originator of style.
