Plugs Plus is the fourth album by the computer quartet Dat Politics. Based in the historic industrial city of Lille, their cheap laptops generate epileptic micro-rhythms escorted by child-like acid melodies. But the real novelty resides in the warped and distortioned singing exercises which are mixed-up inside their digital hymns. Help in their experiments comes from some protagonists of the international electronica jet-set -- Blectum From Blechdom, Matmos, Kid 606, Felix Kubin, Lesser -- and as a result, Plugs Plus is a pixellated pop snapshot focused on failed flirt and gastronomy. After work with innovative and respectable labels such as A-Musik, Mille Plateaux, Skipp and Tigerbeat6, the laptop-band collaborates here with the 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.
