German electro duo, Digitalism, was founded in 2004 in Hamburg, consisting of Jens "Jence" Moelle and İsmail "Isi" Tüfekçi. Jens likens Digitalism's songs to simple chapters in a complex novel about social interaction and attraction, with distorted baselines and thumping rhythms comprising the punctuation.
Digitalism has remixed tracks for Tom Vek, The Futureheads, Daft Punk, Tiga, Klaxons, White... Stripes, Monk, Depeche Mode, Cut Copy and many others. Their tracks and remixes are played by DJs such as Erol Alkan, Soulwax, Boys Noize, and Justice, among others.
Digitalism's debut album, 'Idealism', was released 9 May 2007 as Digitalism on Toshiba EMI Records in Japan, on May 21, 2007 on Kitsuné Music in France and on Astralwerks in North America. The album includes re-edits of the previously released singles "Jupiter Room", "Zdarlight" as well as their "Digitalism in Cairo" original re-edit of a track by the Cure which actually doesn't feature a sample from the track.
In June 2011, Digitalism released the second studio album, 'I love You Dude', on Cooperative Music. The ablum includes the previously released single "Blitz" and Stratophere", the hit-single "2 Hearts" and a cooperation with Julian Casablancas. All over the sound on the second album has become more openminded. Digitalism's sound is crossing the limits between Electro, Rock and Indie.
