“keep an eye on DVAS they will be up there in no time, playing in front of drunk teens worldwide.”

“Divan Orange was at capacity with a large crowd trying to get in to see Toronto’s DVAS…The band makes us think a little bit of Boston’s More Than A Feeling re-imagined as house music, and that formula works way better than it should. The whole Phil-Collins-on-ecstasy vibe is silly enough to be fun, and catchy enough to stick in your head for the rest of the night. The club was so steamy and sweaty that our video camera kept fogging up” – NOW Magazine

One of my favourite electronic bands in Toronto” – BlogTO

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 busted-beats from their hometown in Edmonton alongside label mate Cadence Weapon and local pals Faunts and Shout Out Out Out Out.

Dietzche V. and the Abominable Snowman’s French touch 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 may 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.

DVAS have released three internet-only mixtapes, a slew of remixes including a lethal-mash of Cadence Weapon’s “Getting Dumb”, available exclusively on Cadence Weapon’s iTunes release of the Separation Anxiety EP, and have brand new track “Inner Sanctum” featured on the 2009 France based blog turned label, Valerie; “Valerie And Friends”
Compilation.

As 2009 draws to a close for most of us, it is only the beginning for DVAS. They made their Upper Class live debut at Pop Montreal for ‘Le UC Throwdown 09’ Showcase at Divan Orange, Saturday October 3rd alongside new label-mates, The Cansecos & Cadence Weapon and locals Silly Kissers and CFCF. January will see the anthem-in-waiting “Society”
single dropped on turntables the world over, helping each of us get through the bleak winter months with that chunky slice of emphatic energy-induced music we oh-so-crave at the beginning of each new year. 2010 will be packed full of live dates, festivals, mixes and remixes, but best of all, their brand new LP will burst onto the scene in the early summer months.

“Society”, the album will be released summer 2010 on their new abode Upper Class Recordings, the Toronto-based label responsible for bringing you influential and notable artists The Russian Futurists, Cadence Weapon, Girlsareshort (MSTRKRFT Al-P’s original project) and The Cansecos.
