Holidays anyone? We are, from the coast of south Sardinia, here is something to cheer you up while you are enjoying that cocktail on the beach: a bunch of fresh producers, half hour of awesome music and a surprise!
Vassilis Sirone and Kostis Spud (left), from Greece, formed Digital Riot back in 2008 and for the past few years have been entertaining clubbers with their exciting mix of indie electro/pop. The list of DJ's they have been sharing decks with is a long one, with many big names, to quote a few Feadz from Ed Banger, Paul Devro Mad Decent and The Twelves from Kitsune, all I can say is WHOAAA!
This EP is their first official release as producers but their experience goes beyond that. Check their Soundcloud page to get a taste of their sound, remixes like the early 2012 Hurray’s “This is Nasty” remix or the more recent Hot Chip - Night and Day (Digital Riot 909 Dub) created for the “Beatport – Night and Day” remix contest, two awesome pieces... plus I love Hot Chip! (their latest album "In Our Heads" is the soundtrack of my summer this year. well done guys woop!)
Back to Digital Riot... These two guys are quite something! Personally I fell in love with their latest effort "Dawnse" out these days on Southern Fried Records... and the music speaks for itself. For their release on aLLriGhT ReCorDs, two hot original tracks “Jack your Body” a bass groovy ride, for indie electro lovers, and “I need U” with that house effect and a clear 80’s revival influence, good stuff!
Remixing: representing the label aLLriGhT rising the raving spirit with our “harp no mercy” edit of “Jack your Body” aLLriGhT Remix; and Digital Riot's fellow country men, 3dot and Dubplee with two remixes that stay true to Digital Riot’s nu-disco roots.
Finally, tonight there is going to be an "EP release party" in Athens (Greece). I know it’s a bit of a long shot for most of you, but for those who are from that area, or if you need to chill after that climb from the Agora' to the Parthenon, or if you are just there enjoying what one of the oldest cities in the world has to offer, well you are in for a treat! Join Digital Riot and friends for the "Jack Your Body E.P. Release Party @ CAMP" (click on link for details) for a magic summer night with lots of guest and what a better delight then listening to Jack your Body played by Digital Riot themselves! As far as I'm concerned I won't be attending but I'll be raising a glass for them tonight from the other end of the Mediterranean sea wishing them success.
Speak spoon aLLriGhT!
