Playing tracks by
Rhythm & Sound, Burial, Azymuth, Neon Phusion, Marino Berardi and more.
This Friday’s mix is by Simbad, the French producer who’s a quiet staple of Europe’s house scene.
A member of various groups, including Izmabad (with Karizma), Les Barons and Marathon Men, Simbad has been releasing singles and albums since 2001, with a trademark sound that thrives on untreated, right-first-time instrumentation and warm analog synths on the sort of broken tip that brings to mind recent peer Altered Natives.
We’ve been trying to get him to do a FACT mix for ages now, but with the help of the Sunsplash Festival, where Simbad, Jamie Lidell and more will be playing this summer, we finally pinned him down between tours.
The results are immaculate, with Pepe Bradock, Ramadanman, Shed, Rhythm & Sound, Burial (Simbad’s own beautiful remix of ‘Fostercare’) and more featuring. Tracklist follows the download link, for the interview go to http://www.factmag.com/2010/04/02/fact-mix-137-simbad/2/
