Summertime 2006, the sun’s ablaze and you’re laying low in the lush landscapes of the lavish Dolores park, Quadrant II. Tecate in one hand, you hear faint melodic buzzes and bangs emitted via ghetto-blaster, owned by a tonal tastemaker stationed a few blankets away. As your ears tune in to tame the tantalizing tempo, you are able to make out the lyrics through a delicately woven web of psycho-sonic synth melodies, “yeah, I’m a hustler baby. That’s what my daddy’s made me”, it beckons. You can’t help but question, “WHO is the courageous culprit that catalyzed this cataclysmically catchy ear-candy into creation to embed its soul into my cerebral cortex?!”… only to discover that Simian Mobile Disco is guilty as charged.
Cut to 2011. Times have changed and those forward-thinking visionaries have adopted a new found model of creative consciousness through the collective strife for meaning. They’ve undertaken a desire to develop material that captures only the true essence of the self through revelatory innovative reinvention. SMD has done precisely that with their aurally evolved masterfully manifested mountains of sound. Still catchy as ever, their synaesthetic aural vision has evolved into one that is all their own- dark and delectable minimal techno disco delicacies, bangin’ bloody bouquets of ballads that invade your eardrums invoking radiant rays of rhythm. These rays have been cautiously captured and packaged up nicely to be served right to your doorstep at your friendly neighborhood nightclub, Public Works.
