(Simian Mobile) Disco Sunday #3

Simian Mobile Disco

This past Saturday night was 7/7/07, and while hundreds of millions of people around the world tuned in to watch Spinal Tap’s army of bass players, we chose to catch Simian Mobile Disco’s first ever live show on American soil at Studio B, Brooklyn. Call us crazy but as SMD are in the vanguard of the bands/DJs/remixproducer crossover thing that we love so much, it was a foregone conclusion that we’d need to go and do a little gear trainspottin’ from the front row. And now, DiscoWorkout.com is pleased to bring you some of the first shaky homemade videos of SMD’s insane tweakology-in-the-round live show:

SMD’s Myspace seems to show them touring Europe nonstop til December but a little birdie told us they’ll be in the SanFranDisco on September 21 with Boyznoise – crazy hott! Go!

For more supergeekin’ live electro gear trainspotting stuff, check out these amazing pictures from Erol Alkan’s site from inside Daft Punk’s pyramid, courtesy of Create Digital Music. Also, Music Thing recently pointed out some balcony snaps of Nancy from LCD Soundsytem’s maxi-minimalist setup a while back. For extra credit, join the ensuing discussion on how many Microkorgs are too many (she uses four!).

Shakes

Speaking of 2-person bands that are also talented remix producers, Shakes are a couple of brothers from England who have a new EP out on LA’s I Am Sound records. It’s very 80s, which we love, and very Rapture-y (indeed I’m wondering if there isn’t some allusional/referential connection as “Sister Self Doubt” sounds a *lot* like “Sister Savior”, and not just in name…but in a good way, to be sure):

If you live in London you can see them live several times this month, including a gig at Together Club on July 28 along with Para One, David Guetta, The Teenagers, and a Klaxons DJ set. Everyone else can see ’em on the interweb right here and now:

not BOOTY

It has come to my attention that a lot of our hits come from people google imaging “booty”, “BOOTY” “onion booty”, ect. Therefore, if you notice today, all of the pictures I use will be known as booty tonight.

Take that search engines!

It is time for another large post of new music. Here are some things I have been listening to lately. Think of this as a mini mix-tape for my friends on the internet. I don’t know you, but I wish I did!

I have been waiting for the new remixes of “Higher State of Consciousness” by Josh Wink for a long time now. The original is a track I often bring out and DJ, but it is a gamble. About half the time I ruin the party. However, the remixes are a great updated version. The Mathew Johnson one was good, but this one is made for the dance floor.

MP3: “Higher State of Consciousness (TV Rock and Dirty South Remix)” – Josh Wink

Next up, we have yet another remix of Simian Mobile Disco’s “It’s The Beat” . The Luke Vibert one has been around for a minute on the blogs, but here is the fabulous Riton Re-rub, whom we absolutely love love LOVE.

By the way, BOOTY

Next, a double dose of Luetzenkirchen. Well known for his work on Great Stuff, you should familiarize yourself with him if you don’t already know. For me, he straddles a fine line between electro, house, and even trance……. Sounds like a horrible description, but trust me. It is good stuff. On the remix is Huggotron which is, of course, one of the Dahlback boys. In my opinion this is one of the best jobs he has done.

It is getting late, so I will keep it brief. Paul Woolford presents Bobby Peru (same guy). This track is a big throwback.

Last, a Scissor Sisters remix by Goose. A great pair up.
