DIGITARIA – Starburst Poem EP [Items & Things 035]
1. Starburst Poem
2. Again and Again
3. Over and Over
With a string of successful releases already in their discography, Digitaria are no amateurs when it comes to creating memorable and unique dance floor hits. After putting out albums on both Hot Creations and International DJ Gigolos, the duo make their debut on Items & Things with the expertly crafted and undeniably authentic, ‘Starburst Poems’.
Jumping off is the title track: A hypnotizing blend of spooky triplets laid over a rugged ‘four to the floor’ kick drum. As the wobbly lead constantly twists and turns, short sonic blasts of digital artifacts create the perfect contrast between organic euphoria and technological precision.
As with the title track, ‘Again and Again’ follows suit with a master combination of the natural and synthetic as the duo entwines a rich looping piano with seductive sine tones creating the perfect balance between polar opposites. All the while a haunting female vocal recites the track title resulting in an emotionally enchanting ride.
Wrapping up the EP is ‘Over and Over‘, and again the duo create a uniquely magical odyssey by having opposing forces meet head-on. While rigid percussion constructs the foundation, wild arpeggios come to life establishing a strange, yet engaging campaign that fits superbly to any time and place.
We here at Items & Things couldn’t be more satisfied, and it is with great pleasure and excitement that we welcome Digitaria to the Items & Things roster. Enjoy!
