DAT's Entertainment!

Laptop-toting Frenchies make beautiful noise at the Rogue

If you think Air is the be-all, end-all of French electronic music, you’d be wise to take that soundtrack from The Virgin Suicides out of your Discman and check out DAT Politics, one of France’s most maniacal (albeit lesser known in the U.S.) beat-making machines. The band’s quadruple-laptop convergence produces frenetic IDM that’s capable of reaching dangerously high speeds as well as achieving vocal frequencies that will drive your dog into seizure (seriously, don’t even try it). DAT’s latest album, Mad Kit, is its most widely accessible yet, incorporating synth-pop and digitized vocals that render each track dance-perfect, even through the occasionally thundering waves of aural anarchy.
