Quite literally kicking mad new flavour in your ear, SMD are back with the 4th course in their recent series of Delicacies. After collaborations with Bicep and Cosmin TRG, and their own solo Tong Zi Dan EP, this new smorgasbord features two original tracks
and a remix from techno man of the moment, Trevino.
Kicking things off is Snake Bile Wine – a tipple enjoyed in both China and Vietnam, where the venom and bile from the gall bladder is believed to improve male virility, amongst other benefits – consuming the poison makes you a man, it seems.... Snakes are either steeped whole in wine, or the bile is squeezed directly into a glass. The track’s muscular and sinuous rhythm pulses, exactly like the still beating fresh snake heart served in a shot of saki as an appetizer in the classier snake restaurants.
Snake Bile Wine comes complete with a side order of a remix from Trevino, the techno alter ego of Marcus Intalex. Remix 1 strips it back, dubs out the chords and bass and tops it off with a skittering hi hat pattern.
Snake Bile Wine is out on 12” full platter on the 20th January 2014.
