Summer crush

With ethereal vocals, sometimes dark/sometimes playful lyrics, memorable pop melodies and groovy rhythms, Benoit & Sergio narrate something on each song that tickles your imagination. These beautifully detailed tracks slowly draw your attention as when reading an interesting book with a simple yet original storyline. Some DJs drop the beat in a straightforward manner within a very specific style. On the other hand, this French/American duo produces tracks that are quite subtle. You need a little more time and space to fully enjoy each songs. Their music crosses over multiple genres (house, techno, pop..) and influences (Daft Punk, Talking Heads, New Order amongst others...).
Couple of years ago, they played a great DJ set during Calvi on the Rocks music festival which is hosted every Summer in the beautiful island of Corsica.
They released various singles on labels like Visionquest, Culprit, DFA Records... and I have made a selection of some favourite tracks below:
I like the organic, minimal notes, the repetitive beats, the sweet voice on top of it...

Not In Your Nature

Lipstick and Lace

Bridge So Far
The song you play after midnight...

They will play at the Nest in Dalston, on the 27th of February.
