The inimitable Digitalism return with a stunning new EP, LIFT and marks a comeback to the label that launched thier careers, Kitsuné. It may feel like a homecoming but 'Lift' continues to break new ground for Digitalism. The duo deliberately carved out long-stretches of studio time over the past twelve months to work on some collaborations with The M Machine, Steve Duda and Michael Diamond.
The EP opens with the title track 'Lift', a collaboration with The M Machine. 'Lift' is a rhythmic melodic classic, layering synths with diced vocal samples a plenty to give this track an undeniable and upbeat, dance anthem feel. 'Dudalism', a collaboration with electronic wizard Steve Duda, glows with the ethereal vibes of a night about to take off into madness. Rounding out the EP is the darker 'Electric Fist', which Michael Diamond has lent his talents to; it's all dark synth play, vocal chops and pulsating distortion.
In celebration and support of their upcoming EP 'Lift', Digitalism will play nine select DJ dates across North America in August and September.
