When they were last in the country we had the pleasure of catching up with Jence and Isi from Digitalism and were honoured when they asked us to produce a t-shirt for them. Now Digitalism is back and we can finally release our limited edition collaboration.

The artwork we have produced for them portrays the whole world rocking out to Digitalism. The people in the crowd have analogue clocks for faces while Digitalism have digital clocks. The people in the audience are losing their minds and having their faces melted off by the music. Their analogue clock faces reference Salvador Dali.

This tee is extremely limited edition so if you're keen you can jump over here to pick it up. Alternatively you can click on any of the images to be taken through to the online store.

This artwork is hand-drawn and took over 120 hours to complete. As I mentioned we have only produced a handful of these garments so they are EXTREMELY LIMITED EDITION.

Here are some other snaps from the last time the boys were in town.

Isi / Henry / Jence:

Digitalism are in the country at the moment playing a string of killer shows, including Sydney for New Years Eve, Perth on the 1st and Melbourne on the 8th. For more info check out their myspace or website.

Here is the video for Digitalism's latest single "Blitz':

Here are a couple of funny images I stumbled across somewhere. If you would like to find more equally amusing images you should definitely go and have a look on the internets. I find that's the most efficient way to see funny photos and pictures of boobies.

Artist profile: Erik Johansson

Because we've been spending so much time trying to find a cure for cancer and travelling through time we haven't done an artist profile in a little while. But when we came across the work of Swedish image maestro Erik Johansson recently we knew it was time to rectify the situation. We hope you're eyeballs are hungry because they are in for a visual feast.

We were lucky enough to throw some questions at Erik. Here is what he had to say....

EC: Explain a bit about what you do.

EJ: My name is Erik Johansson, I am a freelance photographer and retoucher living in Norrköping, Sweden. I do both personal projects and commercial work. For me photography is just a way to collect material to realise the ideas in my mind. I get inspired by things around me in my daily life and all kinds of things I see, I always try to make sketches of the ideas I get. Every new project is a new challenge and my goal is to realize them as realistic as possible.

EC: How did you get started with your art and what ideally would you like to achieve with it?

EJ: I got my first digital camera when I was 15, that is about 10 years ago. I have always been drawing as a way of expressing myself, but with the digital camera I started to modify the photos. It felt like a natural step for me but it was mostly basic stuff of my friends and family. That's how it all started. I have studied computer engineering and never really thought that the photography and retouch would be more than a hobby. But today I'm working full time as a freelance.

EC: Explain a little of your creative process.

EJ: When I have come up with an idea the planing starts. Is this a good idea? Is it possible to realise? What do I need in terms of environment and people? This is actually the hardest part since the more you plan the better the end result will become. When I have found everything I need I take the photos I need and put it together in my computer. I have learned that ideas have to grow and take time, this process from idea to final result is usually between one week to several months.

EC: Do you have specific inspirations? i.e. people, literature, film, philosophy, dreams etc?

EJ: I think I get more inspiration from drawings and paintings than photos, e.g. Dali, Rob Gonsalves, Escher, Shaun Tan. But I also get inspiration from things in my daily life and I always make sure to make a note or quick sketch each time an idea pops up. Music has always been an important part of inspiration too.

EC: Some of your images are quite surreal, as if you’re taking the every-day world and creating an alternate reality. Is this how you see your images?

EJ: I don't really deliberately try to create a specific mode or world, but somehow this is what it becomes.

Hottest 100

Just voted in the Triple J Hottest 100. The hardest part was narrowing down all the choices, but this is what I've come up with:

-Yeasayer : O.N.E
-Sparkadia: Talking Like I'm Falling Down Stairs
-Cloud Control: There's Nothing In The Water We Can't Fight
-Yves Klein Blue: Walk On The Wild Side
-Groove Armada: Paper Romance
-MGMT: Congratulations
-Tame Impala: Solitude is Bliss
-Pendulum: ABC News Theme (remix)
-Daniel Lee Kendall: Lost In The Moment
-El Guincho: Bombay

What do you think?

Honorable mentions - The Holidays, Bag Raiders, Digitalism, Grizzly Bear, Big Boi, Plan B, Sia, Seven, Hot Chip & LCD Soundsystem.

Last year my top pick was The Middle East track 'Blood' but I correctly predicted Mumford and Sons would take out top spot with 'Little Lion Man'. This time around I'm backing it will either be Arcade Fire or Washington.

Pre-Bieber ear rape

This song is offensively '90s. Take special note of the hair, atrocious acting and unbridled garishness. Whatever happened to this guy?

With thanks to Craig Dortkamp, the most Aaron Carter guy I know.

In My Arms

What ever happened to Mylo?

Destroy Rock & Roll (DEST ROYR OCK& ROLL) was brilliant. This is one of my favourite tracks of all time.

I have a few words floating around in my head about Mylo's Journey (and even more to say about the Avalanches). If only I could find the time to smash them out.
