Simian Mobile Disco and Irish producers Bicep have collaborated to create new techno-styled track ‘Sacrifice’, a 4am techno-house track with two beatless versions to boot.
Built around a deceptively simple, repetitive melody and laid down onto analogue tape, beatless version 1 keeps the original speed, just smearing out the melodies slightly to make an effective DJ tool. Version 2 takes things to their logical conclusion, setting the tape machine to 7.5 inches per second, and drawing the chords out into a blissed-out piece of ambient wobble.
‘Sacrifice’ is released through Simian Mobile Disco’s own Delicacies label on digital download and vinyl.
The track is available now. Listen here:
