Digitalism - Zdar C1u6 EP
23 Mar 2018
German producers and DJs Jens Moelle and Ismail Tufekci, AKA Digitalism, unveil their new EP ‘Zdar C1u6’, the name in reference to their club hit ‘Zdarlight’. After the release of road trip anthem ‘Red Lights’ and Australian Spotify Viral Chart hit ‘Holograms’ to a hugely enthusiastic fan response, ‘Zdar C1u6’ has been hotly anticipated and features new and final track ‘Raum’.
‘Zdar C1u6’ embodies the crisp and cleverly crafted sounds that make Digitalism unique, displaying their continued innovation and ever-evolving sound over the course of the past decade. Digitalism has become synonymous with their unique and original electronic productions, a crossover sound with roots found in both indie and techno. The second EP in their mini-series, the ‘Zdar C1u6’ follows the success of ‘Jet’ and their 2017 ‘5KY11GHT’ EP. The creative duo has been waiting a while with this one, gearing up with the perfect soundtrack to their soon up and coming US tour.
Track one ‘Holograms’ features Jence back on vocals, he explains “We’re not only exploring how thin the line between reality and the virtual realm has become, but also musically entering a territory that feels new but very comfortable for us at the same time. It’s super exciting.”
On track two and future road trip anthem “Red Lights’, Digitalism says “‘Red Lights’ was written in LA with our friend Dan Keyes. It’s like jumping in the car and driving off into the sunset.. We can’t hold this back any longer.”
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 and Boys Noize.
