IdealisticMore on Digitalism
Kitsuné’s cacophonic duo of Jens Moelle and Ismail Tuefekci have been kicking their heels at the back of the electro revival as Digitalism for no real reason apart from not having nifty T-shirts/robot helmets to do their questionable ‘personality’ work for them (hello Justice/Daft Punk). Instead they’ve been grafting away, remixing the likes of Test Icicles and Klaxons and helping light the fluoro bonfire. ‘Idealistic’ is a simple Art Of Noise-style racket that instantly conjures up the unrepentant retro soundscapes of SMD or the feral percussive pounce of a Timbaland beat. A boxing clever sugar rush.
