Digits (AKA Alt Altman)
Digits is an electronic pop artist from Toronto, who first started gaining media attention when he was living in London and Berlin. The Death and Desire mixtape (2012) was an instant hit among critics in the UK, with Clash, This is Fake DIY, Dummy, and The Line of Best Fit all singing its praises. The acclaim culminated with a review in The Guardian calling it a "near-classic of mournful electronica, a synth-pop album to stand alongside the Human League's Dare." After opening slots in Europe with Junior Boys, Yacht, Dillon, and Toy, Alt moved back to Toronto, where he has since played Canadian dates with Cadence Weapon, Doldrums, Sean Nicholas Savage, and Basia Bulat. In 2013, Digits released official remixes for Sally Shapiro (premiered by Under the Radar) and Sean Nicholas Savage and released three music videos premiered by The Fader, Noisey, and Exclaim. All three have been nominated for the Prism Prize for best Canadian video.
