Tony Simon, a/k/a Blockhead, has been making and releasing utterly distinctive, funky and emotive music for 15 years.

Blockhead grew up in downtown New York City. As the son of an artist, surrounded by visual culture, he early on found that his passion was for music, for the sonic. A fan of a whole range of sounds, especially hip-hop, Blockhead steadily built a tremendous collection of tapes and later CDs from innumerable artists, a quiet accumulation of knowledge and know-how.

After a brief stint as a rapper, he realized his calling was behind the boards and not on the mic – and from there he began to produce beats. Since making that decision, he’s kept pretty busy: carving a niche as a quality underground beatmaker that people call when they want something special.

Blockhead produced nine tracks on Aesop Rock’s critically acclaimed album “Labor Days.” Additionally he produced half the tracks on Aesop’s follow up EP, “Daylight.” He has also worked with other indie giants Atmosphere, Murs, Mike Ladd and Illogic.  In between, he found time to complete a break beat album entitled “Blockhead’s Broke Beats,” with ten hard-hitting instrumental tracks, which was released on Mush Records, the US home of cLOUDDEAD.

WILD THINGS - We can't thank you all enough for sharing in what was surely our favorite Wild Woods to date. Every year our family grows and this year was no exception; from our old friends The Reliquarium, Brainwave Laser & FX, LLC, Sonic Beating, Encore Event Services, LLC and VII Studios, to our new friends Rhizome NYC, Sermon, Hennessey Sound Design, to our amazing performers headed up by Katie Rose and our new staff members, y'all are the most talented group of creators and problem solvers the Northeast has to offer. This was the smoothest year yet all thanks to the synchronicity and flexibility between our crews.

Collectively working ourselves down to our bones is all made worthwhile when we get to look out and see all of your smiling faces in the crowd. Five years have gone by in the blink of an eye and we are amazed by the growth, lessons, and friends we've gained along the way. To simply leave it at "thank you" is perhaps the greatest understatement of all time.

We love you all!

-Ryan, Dan, and Jeff
