In celebration of not one, not two, but three performances at HARD weekend this month, Simian Mobile Disco has been releasing a track every week up until the event at the HARD weekend website. The price is…you guessed it…zero dollars! Just pay with your email address. The lineup for HARD weekend looks siiiiiick, especially for the two shows in New York on the 18th and 19th. Crystal Castles?! Fake Blood?! Simian Mobile Disco?! Skream and Benga?! Jeez, not only do those New Yorkers get better pizza, but they also get to go to one hell of a party. Seriously though, if you’re in the area during any of these shows, I suggest you go. HARD always puts on a great show, and oftentimes the talent they have is rarely seen anywhere else in the states (and this event is no exception). When was the last time you saw SMD or Fake Blood? My guess is only at a few choice raves, if any.
As for the free downloads, they are pretty awesome. Three of them so far are live sets, which, having listened to them, are mind-blowing. Their song Fugu has already been released on their Delicacies album, and another download is very special–it’s an edit of a DJ Pierre remix done by John Digweed. These are great tracks – techno for the techno lover while still being accessible to the EDM layman.
