Over the weekend, Digitalism shared a new remix of their track “2 Hearts,” the lead track from their new album, I Love You, Dude, via the band’s soundcloud page. The album, the follow up to 2007’s Idealism, will see a release on June 21st via V2/Cooperative Music/Downtown Records. The band will be taking their live show on the road this summer as well, headlining the HARD Summer Tour, alongside Caspa, Destructo, Jack Beats and Gesaffelstein.
 
This year’s HARD Summer Tour will be the second annual installment of the traveling festival, which brings together some of the biggest names in electronic music. The tour will hit fourteen markets across North America, including a stop at the World Electronic Music Festival in Toronto.
 
I Love You, Dude further serves their aim of getting everyone to dance with 10 tracks, each of which has their own vibrant identity. This is the sound of a band welding dancefloor pugilism onto crafted sonic sculpture. The band set the bar high for themselves, featuring tracks like  “Forrest Gump,” co-written with Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas, “Circles,” with its Who-ish keyboard and apparently existential lyrics, and standout track “2 Hearts.”

Germany’s Digitalism is back in action, having announced the release of their first full-length since 2007’s Idealism. I Love You, Dude will see a release on June 21st via V2/Cooperative Music/Downtown, and the band has now shared the first track, “2 Hearts” “2 Hearts” is an arena-sized anthem propelled by the PA-crushing sonic pallet that Digitalism has come to be known for,
and has the immediacy of a new indie-disco favorite.
 
The band released the Blitz EP last year as a precursor to I Love You, Dude, to critical acclaim. Of Digitalism’s first album, Pitchfork described the Hamburg duo as “the artists probably most dedicated of all to the idea of merging rock and electronic dance music,” out of all their contemporaries aiming to get the indie rock kids on the dancefloor.

Music lovers from an early age, Jens Moelle and Ismail ‘Isi’ Tuefekci worked in music before they were propelled into the limelight. They came together when Jens, working afternoons in Hamburg’s Underground Solution record shop, became friends with Isi, who worked at a vinyl distributor. The two quickly bonded over their love of vinyl and became a DJ tag team. Soon they’d honed a live show that became hugely in demand and took them all over the world, with firing tunes such as “Jupiter Room” and “Pogo” backing up the hype alongside remixes for Depeche Mode and Daft Punk.

Digitalism -I Love You, Dude ! New Album Coming in June!

** NEW ALBUM I LOVE YOU, DUDE OUT JUNE 21st **
(V2 / Cooperative Music/Downtown)
 
 
With a new album ready to drop on June 21st, Digitalism is back in action with their latest record I Love You, Dude, following up 2007’s Idealism, an album described by Pitchfork as solidifying the Hamburg team as “the artists probably most dedicated of all to the idea of merging rock and electronic dance music” out of all their contemporaries aiming to get the indie rock kids on the dancefloor. If you were at a party at any point in the year that album dropped, you are familiar with Digitalism’s tunes as they were blasted out of every home stereo and club soundsystem across the globe from here to Australia.
 
Music lovers from an early age, Jens Moelle and Ismail ‘Isi’ Tuefekci worked in music before they were propelled into the limelight. They came together when Jens, working afternoons in Hamburg’s Underground Solution record shop, became friends with Isi, who worked at a vinyl distributor. The two quickly bonded over their love of vinyl and became a DJ tag team. They were soon using early CD-writers to burn their own edits, and in jokey tribute to Bob Sinclar’s Africanism All Stars project and to their own love of electronic dance music, they scribbled the word ‘Digitalism’ on the CDs to identify them for playing out. A band was born and their 2005 tune “Zdarlight” put them on the radar of a new network of young DJs across the globe pushing club culture in a heady rock direction.
 
Soon they’d honed a live show that became hugely in demand and took them all over the world, with firing tunes such as “Jupiter Room” and “Pogo” backing up the hype alongside remixes for Depeche Mode and Daft Punk. They toured the Idealism album for a couple of years and then went to ground, cutting back to a few DJ dates a month so they could concentrate on crafting I Love You, Dude in their Hamburg bunker studio.  The new album further serves their aim of getting everyone to dance with 10 tracks each of with their own vibrant identity, this is the sound of a band welding dancefloor pugilism onto crafted sonic sculpture. The band set the bar high for themselves, featuring tracks like  “Forrest Gump,” co-written with Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas, “Circles,” with its Who-ish keyboard and apparently existential lyrics, and stand out track “2 Hearts,” a curveball of a pop song.
