Digitalism

2007 seems so very, very long ago. It's only been a few years since electro-house was the toast of fashionista dancefloors, and Ed Banger and Kitsuné were considered the hippest labels around. Skip forward to 2011, and Hamburg duo Digitalism – one of the biggest names on the scene – have struggled to curry much interest with their sophomore album, I Love You Dude. It's not like it's a bad record, either, even if it doesn't advance many ideas that weren't done (and, in some cases, done better) on 2007's Idealism. Still, as recent festival appearances have proved, the Digitalism boys still know how to work a crowd into a sweaty lather – and that's what really matters. Support comes from Japan's own electro-house supremos, 80kidz.
