    Interviewing Digibilly (producer)

    in Music

    Eclectic, experimental, and hard hitting are just few words to describe the artist Joshua Pearson aka Digibilly (‘Diji, bile). He’s a Drum & Bass / EDM producer out of Philadelphia, PA. His music encapsulates the root essence of Drum & Bass while bringing a new twist to the genre by including Metal, Hip-Hop, and the modern-day sounds of EDM in each composition. Digibilly’s music is driven by his eclectic love of many genres. He sees Drum & Bass as a versatile canvas that is waiting to be painted and manipulated. Overall, his music has a tendency to be dark and heavy, but all of it has a momentum that will move your feet. The fusion of sounds and beats from different genres is what makes what he is. This fusion of the new with the old is the true definition of the word, “Digibilly”.


    Driven by production quality and sound engineering, he finds beauty in complex simplicity. In doing this, he follows a similar technique to his inspirations. Noisia, one of his main inspirations, has been very influencial in the sound that he creates. He also loves the energy and alternative sounds of bands like Prodigy, Fear Factory, and KMFDM. You can hear this inspiration in a lot of his heavier tracks. But on the other side of things, he has admiration and finds inspiration in some turntablists such as DJ Shadow, Qbert, and R2D2.


    His debut Album, “Audible Manipulations of a Digital Frontier”, is a true example of Digibilly’s diversity. It’s a spectrum of sounds and sub-genres. A popular track on the album is “Run To Me”, which is a collaboration with the singer/songwriter Andrea Stankevitch of the group Brite Lite Brite. They have plans in works for them to do more projects together in the near future. Another interesting track on the album is ”Apocalypse”, a hard hitting track that shows his metal and industrial influences of the past.

One of the ways it has brought people together is by turning its key handlers from being a philanthropist in the CHD and nonprofit communities into an executive producer for this show. A new team brought with it new collaboration and a new title. Find out who this producer is, how she became involved with the movie and why "Silent Cries" need to be silenced no longer.
