After the release of “Chasm” and “Wrong Galaxy,” Shit Robot (Marcus Lambkin) had listeners’ ears burning for more. “Simple Things (Work It Out)” is his much-anticipated new single to be released by his good friends at DFA Records.
When it came to the task of remixing such a totemic track, Lambkin enlisted two very different men, Serge Santiago (for the UK version) and Todd Terje (for the US version), for the task. Originally hailing from Oslo, nu-disco edit-master Terje showcases his remix skills. His subtle yet deft touch here makes his “Simple Life” remix the lynchpin of any disco fanatic’s play list. With a steady heart-throbbing bass line and an array of startling acidic sounds that build up the dance floor brick by brick, Shit Robot’s “Simple Life” offers us a glimpse of a futuristic new world, one built not merely by robots, but by Shit Robot.
