Six new tracks following their recent piece “Blitz Gazer“ (2012). ”Powermoon” sets itself up smoothly in Dat Politics‘ evolving universe with incandescent shooting stars like Fox Box Sound, Trance Mission or Monitor and gravity-free lullabies like Boogie Mind & Ghost Town. The final moonquake comes from the collaboration with Drew Daniel “The Soft Pink Truth” on a booty version of “Hold That Pose/ My Mother Told Me“.
Dat Politics are an electro pop band created in 1999. Their incredible energy on stage explains the cult like enthusiasm that surrounds the combo as they’ve toured the world extensively since there inception. Both founding members, Claude and Gaetan (also known for their side projects Tone Rec and Skipp) are also involved in photography and graphic design which leads them to create most of their own covers, websites, posters, t-shirts etc. Dat Politics‘ music is often classified under the electro-pop genre and described as catchy, melodic and eminently danceable.
For 10 years, they’ve been influential for a lot of young electronic composers worldwide. They played loads of festivals all over the world such as Warp label night in England, CTM in Berlin, Sonar in Barcelona, Dour Festival in Belgium, and Donau Festival in Austria.
They appeared on many compilations, including “ItunesEssentials” alongside artists like Mr Oizo and Justice, or on the fashionable underground Chicks On Speed curated “Girlmonster” with Peaches, Bjork etc… They remixed a bunch of great musicians like Jaga Jazzist, The Blow, Architecture in Helsinki, and most recently Yacht for New York label DFA.
