Delicacies for Cosmin and Simian

The collaborations in electronic music continue as Cosmin TRG and Simian Mobile Disco have become the latest to work together on a project.

The partnership will see Cosmin and the London-based electronic music duo Simian working on a pair of tracks that will be released on the Delicacies label owned by Simian sometime next month. This will be the second collaboration of the year on the Delicacies label as Simian also teamed up early in 2013 on a track with Bicep. That was on the Sacrifice 12-inch disc.

This latest two-track EP will also follow a culinary theme with the tracks being named “Surstromming” which is a Swedish plate while the second is “Sannakji” which is a Korean dish.

Surstromming is apparently a putrid smelling dish and the Korean delight is a dish of octopus tentacles which is served while the beast is still in full movement.

The pair is set to do a gig together at the Delicatessen nightclub in London on Saturday, December 7.

Cosmin TRG has been invited as a guest of Simian Mobile Disco on the night at the XOYO. Simian has worked in the past with such acts as Florence and the Machine, Peaches, and Arctic Monkeys.
