A collective cherishing its own internal contradictions and using them as an artistic method.

DAT DOT is a duo which is experimental — for starters, in the sense of its premises. It is the result of a rather wild idea to combine melodic skills of an experienced composer Aliia Sagitova with a pretty vague audible contribution of some guy — who, to make matters worse, prefers to hide his name.

The working process of DAT DOT is simple and quite sequent: Aliia creates a melodic basis, then the second participant messes with it, cuts instrumental parts in pieces and adds effects. After that, Aliia reviews the outcome of those manipulations and tries to save as much of the beauty of her original sounds as possible. Finally, two colleagues find a sort of compromise — and that’s it.

It may sound a bit tough, but there is just a regular, normal amount of struggle and pain — which are, as you know, the usual elements of any creative process.

Ideas for Pop Producers to Steal
Our favorite type of music is the mind-infused and thought-provoking one. We are not saying that this is relevant here, but… Oh, wait. We are.

Halfway Bitter
From melancholy to joyfulness and back. From melodic depths to rhythmic curiosities. A collective effort resulting in engaging selection of music tracks.
