All I have to say about them is WOW!!!!! I went to see The Presets and The Prairie Cartel at The Metro in Chicago and they spun at an after party at the club underneath the venue. They tore the place apart. Highly recommend seeing their set. Hopefully they will be later in the night.

Also, The Prairie Cartel are going to explode this year and The Presets blew my mind. Check 'em out if you haven't already

yeah.. i will def be checking them out.. Digitalism, Justice, MSTRKRFT, Evil 9, and SoulWax are going to be my dancing sets.. who cares if they are an early set..I've seen Adam Freeland, Deiselboy, Diplo and many other DJ's keep the crowd moving just as much during the day time, as the other night DJ's the question is, 'Will you have the energy to keep up with all the dance acts for this three day weekend?' I would really like to also see Paul Van Dyk (never seen em) on Sunday but I know im going to be so damned tired, specially after SoulWax. peaca

agreed.....some of the best dj sets i've seen at coachella have been during the daytime hours.

the re-birth of digitalism


HELLO WORLD, HELLO UNIVERSE, HELLO EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE! Today is the day. Today Digitalism tells what you were asking for! YES, our new album is on its way to you! YES, the 20th of June is the date! YES, this is our albums artwork! YES, we have got more information for you: http://www.nme.com/news/Digitalism/55760. AND YES, THE COUNTDOWN STARTS NOW!’


The Strokes' Julian Casablancas has co-written a song with Digitalism for the dance duo's new album.

The song is called 'Forrest Gump' and features on the German pair's new album 'I Love You Dude', out on June 20.

Casablancas and the band collaborated on the song over email, although the frontman does not sing on it. Digitalism's Jens Moelle said the track was about "constantly keeping on moving otherwise you’ll be in some sort of psychic peril."

'I Love You Dude' will be the follow-up to Digitalism's 2007 album 'Idealism'.

The band are set to play London's XOYO venue on June 13.

The tracklisting of the album is:

'Stratosphere'
'2 Hearts'
'Circles'
'Blitz'
'Forrest Gump'
'ReeperBahn'
'Antibiotics'
'Just Gazin'
'Miami Showdown'
'Encore'

Wow. If the art and title are any indication of how it will sound, it's going to fucking suck.

I think the art is rather symbolic in a way with the Octagon, which sometimes symbolically can mean the rebirth, regenerating or transitioning too...It paves way for a new Digitalism with much shown love to the fans.

If the transition is to shitty music that would be a shocker. The Blitz EP w/ Stratosphere and Blitz were groovy.

PS: I love this board for everyone's witty yet sensible comments.

Look at it again. Then reread what you just wrote. Then smash your face into your keyboard.

It's called I love you dude for fucks sake. Nothing good will come of this.

Do you guys think that the word BUMP will be in the lyrics of Forrest Gump? Like BUMP IT GUMP IT FORREST HUMP IT

I fuckin hope there are lyrics like this on the album, that's solid gold material right there.

FINALLY. I was upset about only 2 songs being on the EP, but this is amazing news. Who cares about the album title? They aren't known for their lyrics anyway. The translation in German probably means something completely different

Thank god those dirty germans stopped being lazy. I <3 them so. I'm so jazzed. Is the album cover clear and black, or is it the exact same tone as the forum background?

If it's any consolation, I was talking to Digitalism's manager last month when I was hosting them at a gig down here. We started talking about Coachella, and he mentioned that he had had a meeting with Paul Tollet. So who knows...

I will be shocked if they are not booked and they will not be playing in the Sahara, likely Mojave closer.

Ffffffffuuu they wrecked it so good. The new live setup is mind-blowing and I could easily see them closing out the mojave one night. You guys are in for a hell of a show, I'd probably watch them again, it was a nonstop dance heavy jam session. Played a good combo of new and old stuff, very very good.

Wow. That was an amazing show last night. Their sound really does intensify with being a three piece live act. I'll check them out again at the polo fields.

Yeah last night was such a quality show. I was up in the balcony, but had such a perfect view. I'd seen back at the El Rey years ago, but the old songs sound so much better now with those awesome visuals. These guys were top fucking notch and I really hope they end up back at Coachella.

Did they use a sample from another track during "Blitz"? They did in Dallas, pretty sure it was a Thomas Bangalter song but can't figure out what it was...

i don't get how people think this was awesome,live it's just a really cool dj set, when i see "digitalism live set" i think full on live because they use a ton of guitars but its all prerecorded shit with live drums,i mean it was cool but definitely disappointed ..way too many fuckin 15 year olds in the crowd..maybe if i was 18 i'd like em better live

I had to look up the "Together" sample when I got home as well. I had always heard it on Alive 2007, but never realized that it was a Thomas Bangalter song.

I was more on the dissapointed side as well. I love Digitalism but I want them to be truly live.. I enjoyed the show but there just wasn't something there. Hate to say it, but I think this would be a waste at Coachella. Next.

Strange how different areas bring different crowds, out here the vast majority of people were mid-twenties and up.

Enjoyed their Hard Summer set in 2011(I think), and as long as it is live, I would most definitely enjoy their set in the desert in 2015.

yeah, I caught them at the El Rey this month and it was blah. I like their new tracks, but they don't translate live that well. I'm willing to bet their DJ sets are better.
