Digitalism are Isi Tuefecki and Jens Moelle from Hamburg, Germany. They’re often mistaken for being French due to their association with French label Kitsune and the similarities between their sound and that of Justice and the Ed Banger stable of artists. Forming in 2001, Digitalism made their names as a block-rocking DJ duo with a penchant for re-edits. One such track, their interpretation of White Stripes’ ‘Seven Nation Army’, made its way onto vinyl and set their stall out as a dance music act that could seriously rock.
Their first original production ‘Idealistic’ in 2004 sent shockwaves through clubs across the world with everyone from Erol Alkan to Pete Tong getting their hands on it. Off the back of the track they were picked up by Kitsune who re-pressed the track and signed Digitalism to an album deal. For anyone who slept on their first release ‘Idealistic’, their second track ‘Zdarlight’ was a serious wake-up call with its acidic undertones and apocalyptic climax and made their debut album one of the most anticipated of 2007. Meanwhile, their reputation for quality remixing was growing rapidly, and after a slew of massively popular remixes of the likes of Klaxons, Test Icicles, The Futureheads and Cut Copy, Digitalism had gained as much popularity with indie kids as with clubbers. Their album, ‘Idealism’ finally dropped in the summer of 2007 and became an instant classic, winning them fans from across the spectrum of music lovers. Digitalism epitomised the sound of 2007 in many a club, and their incredible live shows – including those in The End’s main room and in The End’s tent at Lovebox which were some of the must-see events of the year!
