Digitalism mix, concluding Fuji Rock on the dance floor.

Chunky beat

Part of France’s label Kitsuné, Digitalism are Jens Moelle and Ismail Tuefekci, two cool guys from Hamburg, Germany. Following killer mixes of hipster bands such as The Presets and The Futurheads last year, we also eared their work on some compilations of Kitsuné, Ministry of Sound and Soulwax. With chunky beats build into sturdy synthesizers and funky acid riffs, the turbo-charged DJs took the Red Marquee for a last frenzy bash to close these 3 days of festival.

Usually much more minimalist with loads of repetitive beats and samples, the set performed was a nice blend of electro-rock and deep house. However, the two tall German stay true to their philosophy and delivered some of the best digital music we eared at Fuji Rock this year. With high profile DJs such as Tiga and 2Many DJs it wasn’t a simple accomplishment. Rocking their laptop with kick drum backed up by layers of sweeping, synth-based effects and added keyboards with catchy vocals over-layed, they grabed the last standing people that didn’t left the site or head to the crazy Palace of Wonder yet and dragged them into the dance floor.
