DFA Records Presents Benoit & Sergio
On Thursday June 28th, Cielo and DFA Records host a showcase for two of their upcoming star acts: Benoit & Sergio and Justin Miller.
The French-American duo Benoit & Sergio had an amazing 2011 – Resident Advisor ranked them as one of the top 10 live acts, while placing two of their singles, ‘Walk And Talk’ and ‘Principles’, in their top 20 tracks of the year. The duo draws from influences mostly uncommon to the house and techno zeitgeist; bands like Talking Heads, Pavement and Roxy Music are sources of inspiration, along with electronic acts like Daft Punk and Ricardo Villalobos. All these influences resonate clearly in their music, joined a sexualized melodrama that makes its way into lyrics about loneliness, French girls, wine and even Ferraris!
The unexpected juxtaposition of such pristine production and lyricism exemplifies why Benoit & Sergio are one of the most talked about outfits in dance music today… Justin Miller has been described as the kind of DJ who creates soundtracks to nights to remember. A longtime record collector and passionate lover of music, he is a key player not only in New York’s dance music scene – from its dingiest bars to its most up market clubs – but also a frequent guest at some of the best parties and clubs around the world. His earnest love of music has given him a rare ability to connect with any room, making the rising star a firm crowd favorite and name to watch for future greatness.
A limited amount of tickets will be available at the door
