Favorite ThisDigital Tape Machine Releases Track, Hits Brooklyn Next Week (Win Tickets)

Published: August 31, 2011

The Chicago-based, instrumental-electronic goliath known forever more as Digital Tape Machine is making its triumphant return to the great state of New York. Whereas the fearsome collective (comprised of Umphrey's McGee's drummer Kris Myers and keyboardist Joel Cummins, Strange Arrangement's Joe Hettinga and Kevin Barry, The Hue's Marcus Rezak, DJ My Boy Elroy, and leader/composer Dan Rucinski) showered audiences upstate at The Big Up this past July with their intense, live take on electronic dance and video game music, this time DTM will be in the heart of Brooklyn. Get your tickets here for the Friday, September 9th Digital Tape Machine appearance at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, featuring openers Wyllys, Dexterous Roy, DJ My Boy Elroy, and DJ Marmon. The show is the official after party for Umphrey's McGee's sold out performance at Brooklyn Bowl that night. If you couldn't get in, this is the place to be. And if you're feeling lucky, or just plain smart, perhaps you should try to win a pair of tickets to the DTM show from TheUntz.com.

Elephant in the RoomIn anticipation of the Williamsburg blowout, Digital Tape Machine is leaking the studio version of live sensation "X Tasty." This gorgeous composition is the first glimpse DTM fans are getting of the brand new album, Elephant in the Room, set for release in the near future. Flowing countermelodies create a rippling wall of sound that pulses and vibrates with energy, while maintaining it's cool ambiance. Tinkling piano melodies race across the gurgling surface of bass and drums. Just when you think the track couldn't sound better, the melody is transposed and twisted, sending soaring guitars shooting through the lilting breakbeat and electronic wash. The cognitive dissonance of beauty and intensity borders on overwhelming. Don't sleep on this gem.
