Digitalism Ready New DJ-Kicks With Plenty Of Exclusives

When speaking with Jens Moelle and İsmail Tüfekçi, the two men behind Digitalism, we learned that they’re really quite big fans of DJ-Kicks. Perhaps their love of the series explains why they dug so deep for their own mix, blessing us with a heap of exclusive, unreleased Digitalism material, as well as a new edit, a new remix, two “club weapons” which have appeared in their sets for years but have yet to see an official release, and of course a connoisseur’s selection of tracks that give a window into their “sonic universe.”

We thought it was only fair to match the duo’s generosity and offer a brand new track to download. Grab “A New Drug” below, and check out the full album tracklist. Digitalism’s DJ-Kicks will be available July 10th on CD, LP & digital download, and the group will be touring internationally in support of the release.

  1. [...] Hace nada hemos conocido que Digitalism serían los encargados de mezclar la nueva entrega de la serie Dj Kikcs, que desde 1995 y de la mano del mítico sello alemán !K7 Records, la completan una exquisita selección de nombres formada entre otros por Carl Craig, Thievery Corporation, Kid Loco, Tiga, Hot Chip, Juan McLean, Chromeo, Apparat, y así hasta más de cuarenta. Nos cuentan que Jens y Ismail, los dos componentes de Digitalism se conocieron siendo vendedores en una tienda de discos de Hamburgo, y que allí ya vendían y admiraban la serie Dj Kicks, siendo sus favoritas las de Tiga, Playgroup y la de Erlend Øye. Pues bien este próximo 1o de julio va a salir su entrega, con algunas particularidades: va a incluir seis temas inéditos del dúo y dos mezclas suyas aún por estrenar, una para el tema ‘Sail Away’ de The Rapture (que queremos escuchar ya!) , y otra para el tema ‘Alicudi’ de Guy Barone. A pare de eso, el sello va a lanzar un Ep en formato vinilo, que contendrá únicamente estas ocho novedades. Para promocionar el lanzamiento, Digitalims regala uno de los temas que van a formar el disco, y es ese ‘A New Drug’ que se puede descargar aquí. El tracklist completo de la sesión, que a parte del dúo alemán, incluye a nombres como Vitalic, Alex Gopher, Housemeister o Whomadewho entre otros, lo podéis encontrar aquí. [...]

  2. [...] con Photek prima e con Maya Jane Coles poi, la !K7 è già pronta a rilasciare il terzo Dj-Kicks del 2012 curato nei minimi dettagli dal duo electro tedesco Digitalism. Come si poteva facilmente [...]

  3. [...] I’m still not exactly sure what this whole DJ-Kicks thing is about (it sounds like a series of compilations focused around different artists?), but what I do know is that “A New Drug” is serving as the announcement for a new album coming July 10th. The free exclusive from ze German duo Digitalism carries a Justice-like flow to it, featuring a grinding bass line and distorted synths that you never quite figure out what to do with. You can read more about the upcoming release as well as find the entire tracklist here. [...]
