Do Me On It!


I'll do my best to think about and listen to something other than Justice for a bit, so here we are: Simian Mobile Disco.

I've always found SMD to be a bit hit and miss with me. Some of their tracks and remixes are simply brilliant and beg to be put on time after time, whilst others just leave me confused and disappointed - and some I can't decide between the two (I either love or hate their remix of 'Are You The One', but never get any closer to a conclusion). The new album, however, is proof that they are very cluey producers and really do make some great music.

Out of the newer tracks on the record, 'Wooden' and 'Love' are personal favourites, while older classics like Hotdog and I Believe fit in perfectly. I've also added in one of my top SMD remixes, which was also in the love-it-or-hate-it? basket for a while.
