About

Bad Mime is the production project from drummer Zach Simao. Bad Mime draws on his wide range of experiences in the acoustic world to create electronic productions that feature organic grooves and strong melodic ideas. His tracks are chill, beat-heavy, and a little dirty, as if Nujabes and Glass Animals collaborated on an indie film.

 

Bad Mime also enjoys songwriting with and producing for other artists. He believes in finding the vulnerable center in every song and doing whatever it takes to make that shine.

It was an eye opening
