we invented da remix: Bjork

"Untouchable/Innocence/ It's Still Here/ But in Different Places"

Been waiting for SMD's remix of Bjork's "Innocence" for a few weeks and couldn't be happier with the outcome. Gone are Timbo's signature stadium sized bass n' drums, replaced by a bassy LCD-esque intro, k-hole atmospherics and Simian's uber-recognizable big beats and bigger breaks. Around 4:30 it really starts breathing heavy, then cools off a bit, before revving right back up into a bombastic head-spinnin rager around 5:39. Another banger from the hot-dog loving, animal house living, tits & acid hustlers known as Simian Mobile Disco.

While on the topic, check out Spank Rock's equally, if not more, delicious remix of "Earth Intruders," which feels like coming up on a fist full of molecule. Adverse reactions may be: spastic bouncing, uncontrollable head bobbing and violent arm flailing. Guaranteed to make our limbs jerk like an infant throwing a temper tantrum in Toys R' Us. Must be the squibbling synths and syncopated hand claps and heavy tambourines. Advice: You should be pre-gaming with Bjork this weekend.
