Those in the know love Simian Mobile Disco, and those who have fallen out of the loop are about to love them. The UK-based remix and production team in James Ford and Jas Shaw has been steadily pumping up crazy beats since 2005. Originally starting out as a DJ duo they were quickly nabbed by Wichita Recordings. Since they have produced for others such as Kitsuné.
In addition to his work with Simian Mobile Disco, James Ford is a producer and has worked with bands such as Florence & the Machine, Arctic Monkeys, Peaches and Klaxons. Downtown is ridiculously good and something that’s come to be expected when the initials SMD are attached to it.
