Digital Beat Down is a live electronica duo that fuses synthetic textures and organic instrumentation to create dance friendly compositions with a prog-rock twist. The distinctive feature of Digital Beat Down is their ability to draw on the ethos of the DJ culture while still providing the intangible live band experience. The duo thrives on creating carefully crafted songs and multi-layered live looping jams that invite the listener on a psychetronic journey through the depths of dirty Drum & Bass, to smooth Deep House, to Crackin’ Breaks, or finished off by their bone penetrating brand of sub bass driven Dub-Step funk.
The duo was formed in Denver, CO in the fall of 2008, by Andrew Lubner on (drums and samples) and Nick Pilz on (synths, samples and loops). Digital Beat Down is a high energy attack. Lubner mounts a relentless assault on the drums and sampler pad, and Pilz thumps the low end while he warps and weaves the dark melodies and subtle textures that define the band. Digital Beat Down has become a mainstay in the Denver/Boulder scene and continues to tour throughout Colorado and nationally.
August 24, 20011 marks the official release of the Just Born EP. Produced and Engineered by Gabriel Otto of Pan Astral, the EP captures the raw energy of the band while tapping into a more subtle studio savvy sound. With the release of the EP and constantly gaining new fans around the country, the band is poised to explode on the national scene and beyond.
