Digitalism played one of the bangin'-est sets in recent memory at San Francisco's Mezzanine in April. Lucky for you, we filmed it. Jens Moelle and Isi Tuefekci, two young Turks [one of them quite literally] from Hamburg, have been thumping eardrums with knob-twiddling remixes over the past year and are evolving into a dancefloor-friendly indie rock force to be reckoned with. We caught up with them as they prepared for non-stop touring for the release of their debut album, Idealism.

Since our debut episode in March 2007, we've gone go-karting with Modeselektor, country music shopping with Devin the Dude, schooled you in Dubstep and Detroit Ghettotech, given pro tips on home music recording, answered love letters with Chromeo, set up an art show with Maya Hayuk and taken you to our favorite underground spots -- like an ex-police mobile command unit turned veggie-oil powered rock venue.
