A jamming techno mix
Simian Mobile Disco - Delicacies

Inspired by all the weird food globe trotting techno gurus get to munch, Delicacies is both new label and debut album. From ‘Nerve Salad’ to ‘Hákarl (Shark Cheese)’ and through to ‘Skin Cracker’ SMD have cooked up a jamming techno mix that’s stripped back to reveal the grinding core of techno spheres spinning in unity.

Akin to The Chemical Brothers ‘Battle Weapon’ series where they ditch the vocal collaborations in favour of a channelled and often banging selection of instrumental grooves - ‘Delicacies’ proves that this aging duo still have the fire in the belly of their hard drive.
