(CD/LP/Download) First Word Records FW51CD, 2010-05-10

Reverse Engineering is the debut album from The Simonsound, an intriguing variety of sounds, including '50s and '60s-inspired space music, mood music for film and TV, haunting vocal tracks, and switched-on cover versions of classics realised on the Moog synthesiser. Made of duo Simon James and Matt Ford (aka DJ Format) the album is already getting series support from across the globe. Gilles Peterson is a big fan, playing tracks from the album on his 'All Winners' show and inviting the duo in to record a session at the illustrious BBC Maida Vale studios for broadcast this May on Radio One. Other fans include Jazzy Jeff, Kenny Dope and DJ Spinna, who says: "Reverse Engineering is a refreshing mesh of the past, present and the future. It's like Mort Garson rocking shell toe Adidas with fat laces blasting into the galaxy in a funky space ship. This record will remain in the crates forever. Don't sleep!".
