Simian Mobile Disco music


THE 41st addition to the Fabriclive DJ mix series, Simian Mobile Disco's mix follows hot on the heels of their Sample And Hold remix album.
Sadly, this is not quite as good.
That said, it has to be one of the best Fabriclive remixes - although not quite hitting the heights of John Peel (Fabriclive 07), James Lavelle (01) or Plump DJs (08) for me.
The problem here is consistency. The mix starts okay but then Hercules And Love Affair's Blind [Serge Santiago Version] takes it on a vocal detour.
Again, the Simians build up a head of steam, peaking with Worthy's Crack El, and then Moon Dog's Suite Equestria steps in, a creditable enough track but possibly in the wrong place.
Ultimately these are minor niggles in a mighty fine mix, but hey, with Sample And Hold mere weeks ago they set their own standards.
