Formed in 1999, Digital Motion are a techno band from Southlake, Texas. Members RT and Kevin play live shows in and around Dallas as well as distribute their music exclusively online through indie label Blue Plastic Girl Music. Online distribution has not stopped the entertainment industry from taking notice — their music has been used in movie trailers for films such as Jet Li’s “War” and Will Ferrell’s “Land of the Lost” as well as television shows and commercials, video games, and other forms of media. Digital Motion have released four full-length CDs; after a recording hiatus of a few years, they are working on new music and videos again this year that they call “big beat.”
Don’t be fooled by the minimalistic bleepy intro of the unpronounceable 108_B2 (Dope Mix). The multi-layered electronica contains intense bass lines and solid breaks that lend themselves well to fluid movement and hookah use. This track is clearly influenced by Eastern (primarily subcontinental) music and instruments, including a hauntingly ethereal sample of a chanting woman. It may also include the rather surreal digitally enhanced sample of a duck.
Digital Motion can be found on MySpace.
