“The mix we have done for Fixed is based on how we hope our residency with them in

New York will pan out. Fixed has always been a forum for the deeper and odder end of

disco and techno, but without forgetting that it’s still a party. We mixed this live in our

studio, allowing us to throw some extra effects in there and also a bit of the 808 from

time to time.” – Jas (of Simian Mobile Disco)


Defend Music is proud to announce the first release in a new series of mix CDs celebrating New York City’s famed FIXED parties – Simian Mobile Disco Is Fixed. Released on October 12, this marks the first Domestic USA release for the famed British DJ/Production/Remix team.

This mix perfectly represents what you’d expect to hear from Simian Mobile Disco (AKA James Ford and Jas Shaw) at one of their FIXED residency nights – it’s all wondrous techno. There’s no messing around here as the mix launches with the spacey, wobbly, jazz tinged one-two punch of Brain Machine “Eternal Night” and Etienne Jaumet “For Falling Asleep.” Next, Jurek Przezdziecki “Qwerty Poema” and Conrad Schnitzler “Ballet Statique” reveal techno’s beautiful side with divine melodies and flowing beats before Andre Walter “Malphas” and Bam Bam “Where’s Your Child?” contrast with tougher and more ominous sounds. It’s the perfect lead into Simian Mobile Disco’s own remix of DJ Hell’s gothic techno track “U Can Dance (feat. Brian Ferry) and Paul Woolford’s rubbery “False Prophet.”

Phillip Sherburne starts off the second half of the disc with his excellent “Salt And Vinegar,” and when paired with the next track, Clement Meyer “Midnight Madness” you’ve got the sound of a plane spinning out of control (good in the context of this mix). Simian Mobile Disco pulls up next with their most recent single, “Nerve Salad,” a full on techno assault with nightmarish sounds weaving in and out. Pantha Du Prince “Behind The Stars” is equally dark, slowing things down before Carl Craig brings back the acid with his remix of Hot Chip’s “One Life Stand.” The mix starts winding down with Chateau Flight’s bouncy electro “Baroque” before the BPMs start freefalling with SND “05:36:58” and Delia Derbyshire’s tripped out and droning “Dreams.”

FIXED was launched in 2004 by DJ’s JDH and Dave P at the Tribeca Grand hotel and the party quickly took off as a result of a forward-thinking booking policy. One week you’d find heavyweight, Berlin-based techno jocks like Ewan Pearson playing with on-the-rise indie

acts such as Little Boots or Friendly Fires the next. To date, blue-chip artists like Erol Alkan, Soulwax, Booka Shade, Justice, Superpitcher, the Klaxons, Peaches, LCD Soundsystem, Mylo, Vitalic, Simian Mobile Disco, The Rapture, Tiefschwarz, M.A.N.D.Y. and many more have all made appearances. The party celebrated its five-year anniversary in November 2009, with Basement Jaxx headlining the night.

Simian Mobile Disco takes the reigns of the first mix in FIXED’s new series embodying what the New York institution’s parties are all about. Simian Mobile Disco’s James Ford and Jas Shaw comment, “Josh and Dave were the first people to put us on in America, and they consistently put on the craziest parties with the best dance music in the United States. We jumped at the chance to do a mix for them, as Fixed is a beacon of hope in a sea of generic bangers. It has a broad, classy music policy and is set to follow in the footsteps of legendary nights such as Trash and Optimo,”
