Digits aka Alt Altman has been written up by all the major UK blogs and is starting to gain traction in the US. The FADER just premiered his new video and he was recently tagged one of the best and brightest stars of 2013" in BlackBook's 'The New Regime 2013' Issue. His Only Affection EP is out on February 26.
Digits is a minimalist electronic pop artist based in Toronto and Berlin. In April 2012, he released a mixtape called Death and Desire featuring a remix by Nite Jewel, and quickly received coverage from several UK publications including a review in The Guardian, which called the mixtape "a near classic of mournful electronica, a synth-pop album to stand alongside the Human League's Dare." Subsequent singles have received praise from The FADER, The Toronto Star and Boston Phoenix among others. This fall, Digits collaborated on the track "Last Trip" with Au Palais' singer Elise Commathe and will be remixing one of Sally Shapiro's songs for her forthcoming remix album in May.
Digits also distributes his albums digitally free of charge to anybody who can prove they have bought something recently from another musician, a distribution method Wired called "bold and brave." Performing using two synthesizers, a laptop, and a looping pedal to reproduce his songs live, he has shared the stage with Junior Boys, YACHT, Cadence Weapon, and Class Actress.
