I’ve been wanting to re-release this for a long time…

This was a mixtape I recorded in one take on four CDJs back in 1999, summarizing my love for thick, heavy, hypnotic downtempo music: ethereal melodies, weird loops, funky acid jazz, trip-hop, and everything left field of center.

Musically, it’s a collection of songs which are very special to me. Many of them were once rare treasure on white-label vinyl, or scavenged during endless hours of crate-digging, or given to me by friends, or something I had heard another DJ drop during some awesome sunrise set, out in a forest in one of our many free outdoor parties.

Live at New Era Transmissions

A daytime set mixed live at New Era Transmissions festival in East Texas. The event was hosted by Atrium Obscurum and featured such international live acts as Virtual Light (Canada) and Antagon (Germany) as well as many out of state Psytrance and Downtempo/Midtempo/Dub artists. It was awesome jamming on stage with fellow glitchoppers like Soundshaman, Inert Geometry, and Sunray. It was a killer weekend filled with great music and good vibes, wish you could have been there.

Genre: PsyGlitch / Ethno Midtempo

An hour-long mix of slow moving, dark, and generally creepy dubstep from a handful of my favorite artists in the genre.

Digital’s selection on this promo mix, one the Ipswich based producer made to mark his forthcoming appearance in the Metalheadz hosted Room Two on Friday 21st June, is absolutely vital. It’s an easy term to band about, like “oh yeah dude, this tune is vital to the flow of the mix,” or whatever, but there’s a real aspect of classicly informed junglism about the breaks he chooses to unite. That fact might be totally unsurprising if you aware of the man’s heritage within drum & bass so if not, here’s a short lesson…

After being involved with reggae soundsystems in his youth, between ’89 and ’91, the exponential scene around jungle and drum & bass started to bubble and Digital started hiring out his soundsystem and found his entry point into a scene that had people like Rupert Parkes, better known as Photek, already enamoured with it. With solo releases stretching all the way back to ‘Touch Me’ on Timeless Recordings in 1995 with Digital releasing ‘Niagra’/’Down Under’ on Metalheadz a year later. A regular on the scene ever since Digital went on to birth his own Function imprint, releasing Space Funk: The Archives 1995-2008 in May of 2009, chronicling his progression and career up until that date.

Still as potent and precise in his DJing, Digital’s appearance at Metalheadz on Friday 21st June promises a lot with his core educated dynamics nestling amongst sets from Goldie, Calibre, Lenzman, Jubei, CMX, DJ Flight and One 87.

Summer is a busy time for most live-performing electronic musicians, but British turntablist sound-designer Dave Tipper will not be hitting the festival circuit in 2013 thanks to open heart surgery.

The immeasurably talented trip-hop and nu-breaks revolutionary has been sidelined with health problems before, having to cancel dates in 2008, including an appearance at the Soundwave Music Festival, with a severe back problem. So far, no details have been released about the reason for Tipper’s heart surgery, but he appears optimistic about the outcome.

On Facebook, Tipper wrote earlier this week:

In 17 hours from now i have to undergo open heart surgery. (I am very scared.)

In an attempt to lessen the blow of medical costs from this major procedure, i am releasing an EP of ‘VIP’ remixes that i’ve been playing in my live sets over the last couple of years. My good friends at Addictech are hosting the release and are forgoing their percentage, so that 100% of the money from your purchase goes towards helping me out. There is also a paypal donation address ( if you feel like contributing more.

My intention is to bounce back from this stronger than ever, but regardless of what happens from here on out, i’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support over the years. It’s been a pleasure serving you all.

To aid in paying the costs that his insurance won’t cover, he will be issuing a VIP remix EP, called Dusty Bubble Box, through Addictech on July 1. Fans are encouraged to purchase the EP pre-sale here to see that all of the money gets to him. The rest of his catalogue is available at

One of the true greats of disco and electronic music, Giorgio Moroder brought a very European aesthetic to black American dance grooves. Although Italian by upbringing, Moroder did most of his work in Munich and the influence of Düsseldorf’s Kraftwerk can be heard in his work for Donna Summer, which includes two of the ultimate disco anthems, I Feel Love and Love To Love You Baby. This was motorik music: spacious, trippy, ever-lasting, far removed from the relentless bounce of most disco. Giorgio Moroder is also a supreme composer of soundtracks, scoring an unlikely success with The Chase, the theme from Midnight Express, and his footprints are all over British synth-pop, from Pet Shop Boys to New Order to Human League. It was with the latter’s Phil Oakey that he got his biggest self-credited hit in 1984, Together In Electric Dreams.
