Dat Mot Revisited/Gigabyte by Dat Mot (Review)

Let these two releases be a lesson to the kids; you don’t need a record deal to make records.

Record production? Most people who know the deal scoff at the idea of high-priced studios, distribution deals, and a nervous A&R staff. Why not record in your house, mix everything down on a PC, press up some CDs, and sell them on your website?

Indie electronic musician Dat Mot has followed this process for the past few years and now he’s released a collection of his best work, Dat Mot Revisited. Each track on the album is radically different from the next, jumping from techno to hip-hop, industrial to metal, and various other styles.

Unlike Dat Mot Revisited, Gigabyte is a much more focused and concise release. Tight breaks and playful synths elevate tracks like “That Feel” and “Hawd.” Although every track is enjoyable, the standout is the mid-tempo cut “On Point.” Let these two releases be a lesson to the kids; you don’t need a record deal to make records. Folks have been doing it for years.
