Das Pop

Das Pop
(Ugly Truth Records)

After being heavily endorsed on Justice’s BBC Essential Mix and that infamous mix that was rejected by FabricLive, Belgium’s Das Pop have already gained respect from huge heads in the ever growing Euro-Electronica community. And understandably so, as their admirable blends of guitar fused pop alongside strings and other funk elements fall easily into any DJ set, whether it’s indie, or straight up electro nonsense.

Combine this with fellow Ghent residents, Soulwax on the production front and it’s as guaranteed a success as the Williams sisters at Wimbledon, just not as shamefully arrogant and/or uptight about every bloody little thing. Oh no I diiiiidn’t.

August sees the release of feel-good number ‘Underground‘ which has all the aforementioned funk-indie jams alongside catchy choruses making this tune perfect for any summer shindig (let’s hope this unprecedented rain [yes even for England] passes by the time this comes). Cropping up on all decent mixtapes on the interwebs last year, it’s about time this track got a release in physical form and gets the playback it deserves.
