digitalism: music to... get lost to
The Deutsch duo lay down a mix of electro-indie gems.
Jence and Isi AKA Digitalism are constantly evolving their sound. From punchy house and techno through to straight up indie and electro, the pair have got it covered. Through their constant outflow of original cuts and remixes, Digitalism have developed a trademark groove.
Now, after over a decade in the game, the pair have just delivered their third studio album, Mirage. Their newly focussed approach to making music saw them cook up this funk fuelled, disco dashed, 15-track storm. "First of all it's probably a snapshot of our thoughts, like a brain scan," explains Jence, "It's a soundtrack to our own world, but so vaguely put again that other people can identify with it, or come up with their own analyses. It's meant to be something fantastic, something beautiful, yet fragile."
As the pair step into the mix for i-D, experiences the vibes of the album, press play, get lost and fall into the sounds of Digitalism.
