DAT Politics | Rag Bag

Rag-Bag n. 1 a bag in which scraps of fabric etc. are kept for use. 2 a miscellaneous collection. 3 sl. a sloppily dressed woman.
Four French laptop wielders from the historic, industrial city of Lille, DAT Politics create music consisting of mangled synthesised melodies that might once have functioned as fodder for the average Wal Mart consumer, played out over a volatile rhythmic pool of clicks, static and good-old pulsating beats.
Further works by DAT Politics are available via their website.
