After ten years making music James Ford and Jas Shaw can still make the crowd go ape

Simian Mobile Disco pulled an inclusive all-ages crowd into Village Underground for this Bugged Out special. Standing at the bar you could find yourself rubbing shoulders with anyone along the full rave spectrum of up to the 55 mark. But this wasn’t the place for chin stroking old men, SMD still brought on the rave to all.

When SMD started it was an instant party, with smiles all around and a warm vibe. There was hat-sharing, sunglasses swapping, aerobic dancing fun between complete strangers and SMD seemed to really enjoy playing a party set, with the clear intention of giving the crowd something to dance about.

“A cracking night… full of fun and play… a nursery for damaged people to play safe with strangers… friendly door staff.. dancing bar staff.. loved it so much…” photographer David Bowen.
