“Purple Dreams” was created in late September 2011, originally as a free download and warm up to Simiah’s debut LP, “Lost in Time”.
Around this time Simiah was hanging out with the multi-talented musician named Ernest Herb. The two were regularly jamming, performing live shows and recording one-take tracks together in an old air craft hanger at the back of a pub in Milton Keynes. This is where the song “Everywhere” was created. Ernest Herb then called in his friend The Fat Controller to jam with the two of them and add some ill guitar to some of the songs. After recording track after track together, Simiah then narrowed the track list down to his favourite cuts. For the vinyl version of the project he added in a bonus beat, which was a beat made in the summer of 2013. We then called in Mr Brown to re-master the project for vinyl.
The original artwork design was done by Skev, one of Simiah’s best friends. Then Bee aka Mr Brown (the man behind most of the KU artwork) arranged the text and finessed the layout.
