The first time I heard "Seven Years" I was fucking blown. At the time, I wasn't too exposed to dance melodies and electronic music like that and listening to that song made me yearn for more. I immediately picked up their self-titled and was persuaded that this band possessed something special, something amazing.

Ratatat consists of Mike Stroud and Evan Mast. Together, this New York duo write and record upbeat instrumental music. Stuffed with synthesizers and psychedelic guitar harmonies, Ratatat will put you in a trance. The group also does remixes of other bands/artists' songs, as heard on their Ratatat Remixes album. I'm going to post The Shout Out Louds' remix at the end of the week, so stay alert.

The Kayne remix is a no go, sir.

I think the song is "Seventeen Years," unless Ratatat engaged in some bizarre year-based song titling scheme that I don't know about. It's funny though, because I first heard the track in "Cloverfield" and that ended up being my intro to the dance music world too.
