Delicacies is a compilation album by British electronic band Simian Mobile Disco.
An album of tech-house instrumentals based around slow builds, minimal melodies, and wide-open, between-beat negative spaces that sounds almost completely alienating outside a dancefloor context- as well as a second disc of the tracks mixed together. And every song is named after an exotic gastronomical oddity, at least one of which has made Gordon Ramsay throw up. So much for compromise. That titular premise of Delicacies is by design: The intent was to produce songs that, like the bizarre foodstuffs they were named after, appeal only to a select few with adventurous palates.
On Delicacies, their most recent long player unleashed on their own label of the same name, the British duo makes good use of its expertise while surprisingly succeeding at changing the very image they carefully built since they started to work as a dance duo almost a decade ago.

It’s been these that have inspired their Delicacies 12 series of uncompromising techno bangers and accompanying Delicatessen night. For those who’ve missed them, all the tracks are released on their new ‘Delicacies’ album on 29th November, while Londoners can catch them perform a very special ‘Records & Machines’ set at a London warehouse space. Using an 808, effects, a synth or two from their ever expanding collection, and CDJs, it promises to be an extra special semi-live gig with support coming from JDH and Dave P (Fixed NYC) and Nadia Ksaiba.

The tracks on Simian Mobile Disco's third album are all named after foods, but don't expect any sensual material. Delicacies is a hard-hitting nine-tracker of pounding club cuts, most of them over eight minutes long. Despite fans' yin-yang between tight pop songs and thrilling productions, the Simian duo has continually found ways to impress, and Delicacies is impressive indeed.
