DIGITALISM - "Idealism" 77%


I am in love with "Idealism", the debut LP from German remix duo DIGITALISM. The album, released in N. America on Astralwerks, is an electro-punk opus. Things get started with the epic 1-2-punch of sinister stomper 'Magnets' and spaced-out synth odyssey 'Zdarlight', before busting out into a string of amazing electro-punk bangers 'I Want I Want', 'Idealistic', 'Digitalism in Cairo' and the current hit 'Pogo'. 'Digitalism in Cairo' is quite possibly the most inventive cover I've heard in light years, a vast reimagination of THE CURE's post-punk classic 'Fire In Cairo'.

The second half of "Idealism" keeps the pace in check, finding just enough quiet time ('Moonlight'/'Jupiter Approach') to balance out the otherwise bangin' sci-fi party before closing things out with the exceptional final track 'Echoes'.

Highly recommended!!!
