Keep fit goes disco with electro duo
Simian Mobile Disco have teamed up with Nike for a new exercise scheme.
The trainer manufacturer is launching a training regime called Nike Plus, and the dance act have provided the soundtrack.
The 30-minute piece, simply called ‘Run’, is designed to complement exercise.
It begins at a tempo suitable for warming up, before speeding up for a running workout before slowing down again. The complete piece moves through speeds designed to keep the optimum bpm for runners.
LCD Soundsystem produced a similar track called ‘45.33’. Both are available on iTunes now.
Simian Mobile Disco recently confirmed that Beth Ditto and Gruff Rhys, of the Gossip and Super Furry Animals respectively, would contribute vocals to their forthcoming second album.
