There are generally two types of Digitalism track; there’s their early, heavily compressed electro like ‘Idealistic’ and ‘Zdarlight’, and then there’s their new stuff, fuzzy indie-electro with Jence on vocals like ‘Circles’ and ‘2 Hearts’.
Both very good in their own right.
But it’s the first type of Digitalism track that we’re interested in, and that’s exactly what you get with their new single ‘Roller’, but don’t take our word for it, ex-Daft Punk manager Busy P describes it best, “a mix of Daft Punk’s ‘Rollin’ & Scratchin’ and Armand Van Helden’s ’Necessary Evil’…massive” – high praise indeed.
Mixed by Matt Wiggins at none other than Paul Epworth’s Church Studios, ‘Roller’ is every-bit as good as the track that it’s inspired by, jam-packed full of jagged saw-wave synths and raucous energy.
Out June 8.
And while we have your attention there’s a new DJ mix from the duo, which is inspired by the track, and can be downloaded here. (right click, download file as)
