DAT Politics is a Lille, France-based laptop quartet that developed from the split of Tone Rec. The four members produce glitch-inflected IDM that's occasionally melodic and often aggressively noisy, a range that's often kept in check by a sinister sense of humor. Their releases have come out on a number of labels, including Mille Plateaux, Tigerbeat6, A-Musik, FatCat, and their own Skipp imprint. As far as significant full-length releases are considered, Plugs Plus was released on Chicks on Speed in 2002, while Tracto Flirt -- their 1999 debut -- was reissued the following year on Tigerbeat6. Plugs Plus followed in 2003, and the mellower Go Pets Go was released in 2004. Two years later, DAT Politics returned with Wow Twist, their most accessible work yet. The more dance-oriented Mad Kit arrived in 2008. ~ Andy KellmanPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
