SINGLE REVIEW: Digitonal '93 Years On' out 6 October on Just Music

Following on from the simply astounding album released recently and featured on Vainzine comes the first single release from the album.

If you have the album already then you will know just how monumental this single is without overshadowing the superb LP.

If you haven't yet heard of Digitonal then the single is a great introduction to the musician who is creating his own legend Andy Dobson.

For those of you who do have the album then fret not. The single comes equipped with two great remixes of other album tracks 'Ana Kata' - remixed by 65 Days Of Static and 'Nothing Left To Say' - remixed by Echaskech.

The Echaskech remix is fantastic. The opening few bars remind me of the soundtrack to that 02 commercial a few years ago from the See What You Can Do campaign. Thankfully it progresses on from there into what can only be described as liquid sonic ecstasy! when you hear the bassline kick in you will know what I'm talking about. If you don't then you are probably deaf.

The 65 Days Of Static remix is also good, but I found it to be a little OTT and rather self indulgent in parts and that did take the gloss off it a smidgen.

Overall this is an essential piece of kit for professionals and home listeners alike. It will tear the roof off if you crank up the volume which is how it should be listened to. Don't try and listen through your I-Pod as it's just not the same.
