They are our friends but their sound has progressed quite a bit since Justice vs Simian penned track ”We Are Your Friends”. That’s one thing I’m grateful for because groups of girls jumping around yelling the lyrics like it’s some kind of fraternity anthem was getting very old, very fast.

Fortunately for Techno lovers the world over, James Ford and Jas Shaw decided to hit the lab and concoct something you won’t find on the next ”Now This Is What I Call Shit” release.

A Species Out Of Control is a beauty of a track from their new album Unpatterns and is listen-able from start to finish both on and off the dance-floor. It does sound like some kind of weird alien sound running amok with some oscillators, filters and a sequencer.

Just the way we like it here at CCC.

If you don’t know much about Simian Mobile Disco, they’re from London and doing their thing for the last 7 years and have had 3 full length album releases. James Ford, who is one half of the duo is as well-known for his work with SMD as he is with other bands having produced Mercury Prize–winning album Myths of the Near Future by The Klaxons and two UK number one albums by Arctic Monkeys and The Last Shadow Puppets.

Not too shabby. These boys have credentials so head over to their website to get a better taste of them. And remember, if you do they’ll be your friends.
