Fellow German duo Booka Shade remix Digitalism's ‘Wolves’ and provide a slow building and brooding synth-heavy house music track, readymade for the dance floor.
Having hinted at a change in direction with a soundcloud-only release at the start of the year, Hamburg duo Digitalism are back with ‘Wolves,’ the first proper single that further underlines this new direction. The track, set for release on 14th July via their own Magnetism Records, features Youngblood Hawke and aims to marry their own trademark European electronic sound with the US bands catchy, indie-pop vibes. The track has been given the deluxe remix treatment it deserves with Ed Banger favorite Riton, Booka Shade and the legendary RAC serving up their own reworks of the original.
It is fitting that ‘Wolves’ is finally ready for release and it may seem somewhat overdue for the fans that heard it premiere as the opening track of the pairs Boiler Room set back at Melt! Festival in 2013 and once again as part of their much-lauded ‘I Love Techno’ DJ Set later that year. Since then, the band’s socials have been a constant hive of discussion and speculation over the new sound, and demands for its release have been constant. The boys spent the early part of this year in LA, writing and producing new music, road testing new demos and trying out new ideas at their twice monthly East LA Warehouse parties. The reaction to these shows was incredible, police helicopters shutting down one sell out party due to eagerness of some unlucky fans who didn’t manage to get tickets.
