French electronic band DAT Politics returns to Tigerbeat6 with their brand new EP. The followup to 2012’s Blitz Gazer album, Powermoon sets itself up smoothly in the group’s evolving universe, launching incandescent shooting stars like “Fox Box Sound” and “Trance Mission” alongside gravity-free lullabies like “Boogie Mind” and “Ghost Town.” The final moonquake comes from the collaboration with Drew Daniel’s The Soft Pink Truth on a booty version of “Hold That Pose (My Mother Told Me).”DAT Politics has toured the world extensively since forming in 1999, displaying incredible energy on stage and generating a cult-like enthusiasm for their eminently danceable brand of electro-pop. Founding members Claude Pailliot and Gaëtan Collet are also known for their side projects Tone Rec and Skipp, and have influenced a generation of young electronic composers across the globe.The group has appeared at loads of festivals over the years—Warp label night in England, CTM in Berlin, Sonar in Barcelona, Dour Festival in Belgium, and Donau Festival in Austria—and remixed a bunch of great musicians like Jaga Jazzist, The Blow, Architecture in Helsinki and YACHT.
