Having hit some of the hottest festival stages this summer, this German duo is taking back to the road for a string of more intimate DJ engagements.

In the new video for the DJ-Kicks exclusive track "Falling," Digitalism bring out the psychedelic side of children's television with a cut-up of vintage images and animation to make your head spin. Probably not for actual children.
"Fallin," one of the new exclusive tracks from Digitalism's DJ-Kicks has become a fan favorite, and a highlight of the band's recent sets. With a remix from Tommy Trash on the way, it's looking like this one's really going to blow up! And hey, Spinnin TV have a preview for you below. Look for this one out July 23rd.
Digitalism's beast of a DJ-Kicks mix is out this week (friends in the States need to wait until July 10th) and you can hear it right now in it's entirety via Fact Magazine. In addition to great music from the likes of WhoMadeWho, Alex Gopher, Vitalic & more, the mix also includes a hefty batch of new Digitalism tracks that you can't get anywhere else, including an exclusive mix of The Rapture and a new edit of Gai Barone. The guys are still touring tirelessly, so don't miss a chance to see them if they come to your town, and enjoy the take-home version in the meantime!
The Digitalism guys really hooked us up as far as new exclusive content on their DJ-Kicks. We already shared "A New Drug" with you, and now the guys have streamed a new track called "Simply Dead" via their Soundcloud. This one goes big, with a driving tempo and some low-end crunch that is clearly made for smashing dance floors. Check the band's Facebook for tour dates, and look for DJ-Kicks in just a few more weeks. Digitalism - Simply Dead by digitalism_official
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. Tracklist
