Simian Mobile Disco have built up an impressive production and recording reputation over the past ten years. In contrast to their famously raucous live shows, their more recent releases have increasingly leaned toward more textural sounds.
Jas Shaw, one half of SMD, spoke to us after his set at Primavera Sound this year about the importance of sound quality and what good sound means to him:
