the mobile disco is coming ’round the bend…


Remember when the Chemical Brothers were neck and neck with Underworld as both bands vied for the title of best techno band on the planet? Sorry, the Prodigy were always also-rans. Now that both bands have become mortal, there’s been a gaping void left since without nary a worthy outfit to ascend to the throne. That changed in 2007 with the release of Attack Decay Sustain Release, the debut record from Simian Mobile Disco. The album that redefined dance music and made the hipsters look passable on the dance floor. Ok, the last part is stretching it a little bit but you know what I mean.

Enter 2009 and now SMD featuring super-producer James Ford and Jas Shaw are back with a new single called Synthesize. Yup, this one’s a winner. Lay this track down on the mix and there will be bottoms shaking and hands in the air. Needless to say, expectations are high that the band that brought us Hustler, I Believe, & It’s The Beat will bring the force yet again. 

Oh, and look! They’re going on tour! Take it from me. Catch these guys if they’re in your town!
