was lucky enough to see him play recently at Rockit in the Netherlands with Paul Mac, Surgeon and Lekebusch.

And the whole thing was gut wrenchingly wonderfully insane. BSFP!

One of the best sets I've heard this year, less than an 1 hour, but quality beats quantity in my book

A long time ago now, but Sims on 3 decks cutting it up like a man posessed was on a whole different level. I still rate him as the best I have ever seen. Would love to see him down here again. And agreed, not a festival set, a proper set.

I haven't heard it, but from what I've read it's mostly house and tek-house? wtf? That aint exactly Hardgroove. A few of the DC guys I know reckon it's one of the better releases on the label in a while (damn this shithouse net connection I'm on in my temporary home!)

I'm looking forward to having a listen. I used to love Sims then found a lot of his stuff "the sameish" for too long. I for one wouldn't be disappointed if he moved away from the Hardgroove stuff for a while.

It's definitely deeper than what he plays as a DJ, but it's still that pumping funk he is known for IMO. I love it!

Oh and yes, it's the first good drumcode release in about three years. Fuck Alan Fitzpatrick

Just had a scan, house/techouse all the way, which to these ears is no bad thing but there's nothing really new on it, just solid grooves.

Farked about him not really being keen to come down due to a bad experience.

Double tour with Surgeon would be so big.

Found the album to be a bit "Meh" on the whole but I reckon "I wanna go back" is a winner...

Would be great if he does indeed come down here next year :-)

Just quietly, Surgeon and Sims together is getting me excited. I missed Surgeon last year, keen to make amends for that.

Sure he releases funky house/techno stuff but when he plays out here in the UK (depending on venue) he plays a variety of slamming, hardgroove, tough very clever techno sets.

Did I miss something somewhere along the way as to why he stopped coming out to Australia?

I mean seriously.... a bunch of other floptards are here regularly and Sims, who played some of the best sets i've ever seen, is nowhere to be found?!

From what he said on Facebook he got screwed over by the last promoter that had him out here. I also read that there's plans to get him out here again this year.

That would be amazing. Been begging for someone to bring him out for years. If it's you bringing him out Daniel, hats off to you. Loads of good acts coming out under your banner.

I dig it, straight up Sims party edit even if it does have an aroma of cheese.

Fuck I hope he makes it back to Australia this year for you guys. Simon, will report back on how he goes when I see him at Awakenings later this year
