Biography

Mount Sims (also Mt. Sims) is the stage name of Matthew Sims an L.A.-based DJ/producer/musician. His work is situated within the field of electronic music, though it shows influences as varied as post punk, new wave, funk, techno and darkwave. Striking about his work is that he is almost exclusively responsible for every aspect of it: from the vocals and the instrumentation to the production.

His first album, “Ultra Sex” (2002/International DeeJay Gigolo Records) was an instant underground success. It incorporated many styles that were later defined as the genre electroclash. It showed his far reaching musical background and talent. Major influences to the work were German and British new wave bands, funk and electronica. The album Ultrasex, as the title suggests, was a concept album centred around the themes of technology and sexuality. It contains the electro-pop hit “How We Do”, as well as what is considered by many to be his most outstanding work to date: The innovative, part-rhythmical/part a-rhythmical, challenging, yet catchy “Rational Behaviour”.

His second offering “Wild Light” (2005/International Deejay Gigolo) has seen him move away from the dancefloor-orientated catchiness of his first LP “Ultrasex” and focus on the matter of death and information. The music is more melancholic in expression.
