Topic: Simian Mobile Disco

Caught them for the first time at a festival (NH7 Weekender Pune) here in india. Fucking hell they were awesome. Destroyed the place. Don't know if it's because all the DJs before them went the Drum and Bass route, but they came on and blew us away with the raunchiest disco, techno house god knows what. Anyone seen them do a DJ set? Well worth it imo. 

Here's one video: http://instagram.com/p/fuXF1nhPWK/

Saw them on riding the streets after the festival as well: http://instagram.com/p/fqJnT1rPzu/

That sounds cool 'riding on the streets' basically sitting in the back of a taxi?

Re: Simian Mobile Disco

haha yeah. Stuck in a traffic jam and we gave them mad love.

Re: Simian Mobile Disco

I used to see them at Fabric a lot ~2005 and they were always great. Suffice to say the years don't seem to have been kind on James Ford.

Too much riding the street Sabo, common dj affliction.

Re: Simian Mobile Disco

Saw them at XOYO a few months ago. The DJ before them started playing Prodigy and Drum and Bass (coincidence!?) around 12:30, so you can imagine what a train wreck the warm up was. Simian were pretty good, but it's hard to believe anyone can mess up a two hour set these days, even though it's very common for some DJs.

What makes the passing of time a factor in DJs being less likely to fuck up?

You mean "more" likely. You have a shorter set to program for example. Also if you can't find 18-20 decent tunes in your box to close the night, then surely playing an extended set isn't going to make things any different.
