Digitalism - Wish I was there
5 Nov 2019
Having recently announced their ‘JPEG 2020’ European tour in support of their upcoming album release next month, German producer and DJ duo Digitalism (Jens Moelle and Ismail Tufekci) today deliver the next synth-heavy instalment of what’s to come with their new single ‘Wish I Was There’.
As one of two new singles leading up to their forthcoming album release titled JPEG, ‘Wish I Was There’ is an allusion to moments that disappear as they pass, urging you to get your ‘jpeg’ before it’s gone - “It’s an epic teleportation to a fantastic happy place. The return of the sweet melancholic euphoria of Digitalism,” explains Digitalism.
Over the past two years, the German duo have self-released singles including ‘Glow’, ‘Holograms’ and ‘Infinity’, and now through their labels Magnetism and etcetc Music, Digitalism bring ‘Wish I Was There’. This follows on from their most recent release Chapter 4 made up of two singles ‘Olympia’ and ‘Voltage’ which was finalised on their last Australian tour in Kim from The Presets’ studio, a friend of the duo.
Starting their career in 2001, producing vibrant live sets, the Digitalism boys soon signed to Kitsune, with their release ‘Zdarlight’. Following up the release with ‘Jupiter Room’ from their Idealism album, Digitalism soon became synonymous with their unique and original electronic productions, a crossover sound with roots found in both indie and techno. The album, now celebrating a decade since release, became an instant classic in the indie electro scene, establishing Digitalism as one of the biggest acts in the genre, alongside notable acts such as Justice.
