Wise In Time: Music for Chilling Out

Wise in Time.
Wise in Time.

Wise in Time, the brainchild of DJ and producer Ian Simmonds, combines folk guitars, electric pianos and jazz influences to create a complex musical landscape. After moving from England to Germany, Simmonds recruited a talented backing band following a stint playing bass in the cultishly admired acid-jazz band The Sandals. Since then, he has released five well-received albums, fusing jazz, electronica and inspired lyrics into an instantly identifiable sound. Combining electronic jazz with sweet beats, The Ballad of Den the Men functions as chill-out music at its best, flowing seamlessly through lounge-friendly jazz, funk and dance music.
