SAT | DIGITALISM at VINYL | 2/8/14
After a stripped-down U.S. tour last May, the Hamburg-based duo Digitalism is coming back across the pond. The electro musicians are a prime example of why two heads can sometimes be better than one when it comes to creating music. The pair, Jens Moelle and Ismail Tüfekçi, have been collaborating since they met, and the latter's more light, melodic tendencies are a perfect foil for the former's darker twists and turns. This is electro with an anthem-house twist; the retro clicks and beeps create dancefloor masterpieces that make bodies move and club walls shake. Digitalism has created remixes for such powerhouses as Daft Punk, Depeche Mode and the White Stripes, and in turn had those remixes spun by noted names like Justice and Soulwax -- proof that the act's winning formula works both in the studio and behind the decks.
