Sample And Hold

You can file this under: "Things I meant to mention a long time ago, but have been too distracted to." Earlier this summer Simian Mobile Disco released a remix album created from material that was found on their debut album Attack Decay Sustain Release, which was hailed as one of the best of its genre in 2007 by fans and critics alike.

The remix album, Sample and Hold, features each track from their debut, except each one has been lovingly re-created by 10 different artists who all want to see you dance. There are a couple of real gems on here, most notably the efforts of Simon Baker and Shit Robot, and the collection even includes a contribution by the newly rejuvenated Silver Apples, who were once one of the first "electronic music" groups in existence. Check out one of the songs below, and don't forget about the live set that I posted previously.
