album info:

Plugs Plus is the fourth and new album of the computer trio DAT POLITICS. Based in the historic industrial city of Lille, their cheap laptops generate more than ever some epileptic micro-rhythm escorted by childlike acid melodies. But the real novelty resides in the warped and distortioned singing exercises which are this time mixed-up to their digital hymns.

Help in their experiments came by some protagonists of the international electronica jet-set, as BLECTUM FROM BLECHDOM (two lovely ladies from California: Christine Erickson and Bevin Kelley, who also released on Kid 606's Label Tigerbeat6), MATMOS (Björk programmer on her Vespertine release), KID 606, FELIX KUBIN or LESSER, DAT POLITICS flash by the way of music but also texts some pixellised and pop snapshot focused on failed flirt and gastronomy.

After work with innovative and respectable labels as A-MUSIK; MILLE PLATEAUX, SKIPP or TIGERBEAT6, now the laptop band collaborates with electro trash label from the Berlin-based trio CHICKS ON SPEED to diffuse their domestic and terribly exotic new sonic adventures. Funny, futuristic and radical: THIS is future electronic pop! The CD is designed by CHICKS ON SPEED in cooperation with DAT POLITICS.

Watch the stories with the band in the April 2002 issues of Groove, de:bug and Spex: it'll be an eyecatcher.
