DVAS started as two guys from Edmonton - Jered Stuffco and Darren Veres.
Not having a coast of their own, they moved to the thriving Metropolis' of Toronto & Montreal where they've ironically had their sound really take hold locally and abroad - satisfying french and Quebecois disco dance pop hipster fans alike.
Their early work found itself having a strong club edge with long building tracks that would fit very well into any prog-house set. Moving out of the basement and into after-parties and back alley dance floors this duo hinges on everything that we like about sex and music (and thus whiskey) - so it comes as no surprise they have titled their debut full-length "Society".
This time, It's Disco.
Opening with the title track, you are presented with no less then sex tightly wrapped around a round kick drum. Perfectly orchestrated synth hits allows Stuffco's voice to come into view without you realizing, and leave you wanting as it fades.
This album brings to mind other standout dance classics from greats like Mylo (See 2:30 in Consenting Adults and you'll hear their homage within), Sebastien Tellier, and more currently the sounds of Breakbot and of course the latest from GRUM. Not afraid to embrace its own sound, Society builds into a full disco house fever in Questions - Its got feet going in tiny little two steps as I sit and write this.
When you listen to this record you think a combination of a few things - I want to dance to this, or I want to remix this, I want to make sweet love to this, and hopefully - I want to buy this.
