Why do we like this?
If you're thinking, "Gosh, SMD sounds familiar; didn't they have a song on a Blackberry commercial a while back?" you had better prepare your eardrums. Their latest album Delicacies is a masterful compilation of exquisite progressive techno -- a far cry from the catchy, generally palatable tune "I Believe."

Since 2007, with the release of ,Attack Decay Sustain Release SMD has been throwing out some awesome dance music which has been well-received throughout many audiences. Delicacies will most likely not be featured on another Blackberry commercial anytime soon, but for those in the electronic/techno world it will be thoroughly appreciated for its industriousness.

Travelling throughout the world and trying exotic dishes along the way, SMD was inspired to name each track after bizarre plates they sampled, such as Casu Marzu and Ortolan. Although I'm not craving these dishes for an afternoon snack (let's be honest, I haven't the slightest idea what they are) my ears are gleefully gobbling up SMD's audible treats. Prolific change-ups and bubbling, staccato 4/4 beats drive each song hard from start to finish. The album opens up with "Aspic," an unforgiving track which potentially will melt your face off, and tops off after eight tracks with a 51-minute Delicacies mix.

SMD is on tour throughout the US starting this March, hitting up the usual circuit of Seattle-Portland-San Francisco (Oakland)-LA-Chicago-New York-Miami, and a few others in between. Click here to check out their full tour schedule. Their live shows are some of the most revered sets, so missing this would not be a good start to the new year, people. Go, dance, get sweaty, get your mind blown.
