It started in Edmonton, spread to Toronto & Montreal and begins to circle the world – an infectious musical exploration that’s filtered into the ears of London Hipsters, Parisian electro-kids right through to New York Fashionistas. The creators of this musical blitzkrieg are DVAS, a pair of electro-dance innovators who have created one of the most exciting dance records of recent times.
DVAS’ french touch sound will take you on a dangerous and sexy journey of disco, funk, and soul with their bounce-heavy set of emotional and summer-y electro house anthems. They share some attributes with the space sounds of Daft Punk and pop legacy of Hall And Oates, but DVAS bring intense originality and innovation to up the ante on dance floor pop jams.
The anthem “Society” is the first single from the DVAS full-length album of the same name, and as a wondrous bonus treat – The Hood Internet partners with Chicago party-rapper Kid Static for their super-fly take on the DVAS single. The “Society” video, created by Toronto stars Shark Teeth Films, debuted worldwide exclusively at Spinner.com in June, followed by airplay at AUX-TV, MuchMoreMusic, MuchMusic, BPM:TV and CJNT/Montreal. Society was declared iTunes Single Of The Week, AUX-TV Track Of The Week, reached #3 on the CBC Radio 3 R3-30, and the album went straight to #1 on the Canadian RPM College Chart.
The album SOCIETY has been the soundtrack of summer, with that chunky slice of emphatic energy-induced music we oh-so-crave; tracks like Ambient Room, Consenting Adults, Watching You, Questions, and Giving It All Away left us hot under the collar wishing that this year’s summer fling never ends.
