After their video for SUNS instantly amassed tens of thousands of views online, the DATU track was listed on Wavelenth's 100 Essential Canadian Tracks of 2015. Already on Fader's radar, DATU's upcoming EP High Blood features more daring culture jamming via the ancestral rhythms of tribal gongs, futuristic, Dilla-inspired loops and a twilight-filtered Toronto. From performing at the ROM and the AGO to making a splash on CBC and Buzzfeed - HATAW interprets traditional Filipino folkdance through the lens of the Filipino-Canadian experience, fusing diverse styles of contemporary dance.
