Featured Guest

Simon Hayes’ Swarm Intelligence is a project channelling corroded circuit-boards and malfunctioning software. Born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, and based in Berlin, Germany, Hayes is a formidable producer, as well as a DJ and label owner. In 2009 he founded Stasis Records. Since I began this website that same year, I’ve been writing about and sharing his mixes, and recordings here on Darkfloor.

His sets, like here at Darkfloor, take in range of styles, and genres. Yet, always sound like Swarm Intelligence. Such is the way he selects and layers sounds. For today’s episode, Hayes has recorded us a very special and exclusive set – comprised entirely of his own material, and remixes. Most of it, unreleased.
