Simian Mobile Disco step up to the plate (or should that be plates?) for FACT Mix 107.
Recorded live in London a couple of weeks back, it’s a big, brash unwaveringly banging selection of lysergic acid house, mind-melting techno and neo-electro that intensity-wise makes the Chemical Brothers sound like Robson & Jerome.
SMD is of course the duo of Jas Shaw and James Ford, the latter also producer for the likes of Arctic Monkeys and Klaxons. They recently released the album Temporary Pleasure, with guests including Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals), Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip), Jamie Lidell, Telepahte and Beth Ditto.
