Arc of Lark on Claremont 56
Simon’s career really took off with his first vinyl release – the Arc of Lark 12” on the wonderful and inimitable Claremont 56 label, featuring 2 remixes by San Francisco groovers 40 Thieves:
The original version of Arc of Lark also features on the ‘Balearic 2’ compilation on
Chris Coco and Jim Breese’s Balearic record label: Balearic 2 on bandcamp
Good Measure EP Part 2 on Aficionado Recordings
Simon’s next production, Ottimismo (Italian for ‘optimism’) is a particularly laidback affair and Simon didn’t hesitate to send it to Aficionado Recordings feeling it might be a perfect match for their ultra-balearic stylings. Aficionado duly snapped it up for the lead track on the Good Measure EP Part 2 various artists 12”:

‘Pour yourself a spritz, slip into something stylish and bask in the brilliance of ‘Good Measure Pt.2’ Bird song blends into synth swell as ‘Ottimismo’ shakes our hand, pulling back a deckchair and inviting us to relax and recline with its simmering percussion, swaying bassline and delicate fretwork. London’s Simon Peter is the man behind the music, following a gorgeous 12″ on Claremont 56 with another sun kissed soother perfect for a coastal drive, morning swim or lazy siesta.’
Good Measure EP Part 2 is due for release 12th May 2017, and can be pre-ordered now via Piccadilly Records or Juno Records.
