In celebration of their upcoming residency at the long-running NYC club Fixed, Jas Shaw and James Ford, the duo behind Simian Mobile Disco (SMD), compiled their first stateside DJ mix showcasing what Fixed attendees can look forward to. The deep, dark, acid-infused mix is exactly what you would expect and want to hear from the duo; a gritty hourlong set cut from the same cloth as their mind-numbing live shows.

The tracklist includes the exclusive SMD track “Nerve Salad,” as well as their monstrous peaking remix of DJ Hell’s “U Can Dance.” Etienne Jaumet, Bam Bam, Paul Woolford and Carl Craig’s Hot Chip remix also made the roster, providing the perfect blend needed to dance into oblivion. So if you don’t plan on hitting the New York club scene anytime in the near future but want to get down to SMD, this album has your name written all over it.
