A Digital Needle A Digital Needle Toronto A Digital Needle are purveyors of disco music, a style that encompasses a raw and eclectic mix of funk, soul, jazz, boogie & proto-house. The duo first began throwing parties in an Albanian dive bar in Toronto’s east end, but have gone on to grace the stage at a spectrum of the city’s establishments, from first rate to flea trap. They hold down a residency at a rotating disco jam called Beam Me Up which, while held monthly at the Piston, has taken place in a film studio, an artist commune, above a furniture store and inside the Great Hall, and has featured acclaimed international artists like John Morales, Kon, Al Kent, Psychemagik, Eddie C and Tom Noble. Beam Me Up has also recently spawned a radio show as part of the Toronto Radio Project, whose endeavours were picked up by both the Toronto Star and BlogTO. A Digital Needle favour quality selection and sound above all else with an inclination toward playing out their own edits, several of which have been pressed to vinyl on labels in the UK and Italy.
