dat politics “tracto flirt” compact disc
- tracklisting? i certainly donít see it...
|re-issue of the reissue of dat.polís debut lp on their own skipp label, this time with a few more bonus tracks than were on the last reissue of this record. still my favorite of their output... far more minimal than more recent efforts, indivual ideas get more room to breathe without that insistent cloud of murk. iíve never heard anything that gets closer to the inside of a pre-teen video-game obsessiveís musical mind (circa 1986). lo-bit klassik...|
|tigerbeat6 press release...|
|originally released as a vinyl-only lp on dat politics' skipp label in 1998, subsequently reissued by tigerbeat6 on cd with new art and two bonus tracks-- both versions have been out of print for quite a while-- this specially priced jewelbox reissues the second album made by the lille, france, electronics / computer quartet who create charmingly fucked-up, glitchy electronic beats, tones and melodies.|
after many releases and collaborative work with innovative and respectable labels such as a-musik, mille plateaux, skipp, boytropp boy and berlin-based electro-trash label chicks on speed records, dat politics have established themselves as an ever evolving and always enjoyable staple of the electronic music community. they've been hailed by many as "the future electronic pop" and by the wire as "a total revelation ... bristling with possibilities.... structures are pushed and pulled, and explode excitedly, as thought and play become audible and contagious. their music falls somewhere between the off-center textures of oval or pita, and the splintered computer funk of team doyobi, kid606, or even mouse on mars.
