"Disaster Action Kid": debut full-length, April 2004


Feeling a bit camera shy


5dots brings the laptop rock.

5dots, born Craig Davis and raised just outside Washington, DC in the suburbs of Virginia, has wanted to be a musician all his life. Davis' traditional musical experience consisted mainly of flirtations with drums and percussion, the influence of which can be heard in his detailed yet organic beat production.

Having found his musical niche in the realm of electronic production, Davis twists sounds from eclectic sources to fit his unparalleled style. Foremost though the sonic manglings and ass-rocking rhythms, however, remains an artistic sincerity that's audible in Davis' defiance of genre constraints and his commitment to the 5dots sound.

Some relevant influences include: Alec Emprie, Aphex Twin, Kid 606, El-P, Matmos, and vintage videogame soundtracks.

5dots has been compared to DAT Politics and Techno Animal.
