Nearly a decade after releasing their breakout album Idealism, German electronic duo Digitalism has returned with an EP to close out the year. With a title fitting their history of tech-leaning electronica with an emphasis on the digital aspect of music, of course, the EP has a fitting name that highlights the translation of letters and numbers into a word that our mind reads. 5KY11GHT is a 5-track piece of work that does the same, acknowledging our mind's ability to appreciate the pieces of their music apart and together as a unified EP.
Following the release of "Spektrum" earlier this fall, the track gets a reimagining as "Spektrum2000," a title that surely is a nod to remixing pre-2000 that always included the millenium ahead to denote its futuristic traits. Ebbing and flowing from laid back to future electronic, 5KY11GHT is a surprisingly contemporary take on Digitalism's classic style.
