Peter Ricq & Robbie Slade

Robbie Slade and Peter Ricq, are Humans, an electronic music duo based in East Vancouver BC. Following the success of Avec Mes Mec (2010), Humans are set to release ‘Traps’ on March 6th on Hybridity Music.

The name Humans is far from accidental. While the duo uses electronic components in their performance, they compliment their sound with live vocals and instruments, creating an atmosphere that transcends the divide between performer and audience often felt in electronic music.

The two met by chance in 2009, when Robbie commissioned Peter to design the merchandise for a folk music project he was working on. When Peter pulled out a sampler and started jamming with the band, it was obvious that something entirely new was unfolding. Ricq then invited Slade to create a vocal sample for his solo electronic project, and soon after, Humans was born.

Pulling from their seemingly oppositional musical styles, the boys began experimenting with genre and sound, emphasizing the nexus point between the electronic and acoustic, their sounds instantly bridging the space between.

Since then, Humans have been on a constant whirlwind of touring and studio work including opening for Broken Social Scene, Crystal Method, the Junior Boys, and Clipse. They have played Glasslands Gallery in NY and festivals such as Shambhala, SXSW, NXNW, WEMF, and Big Time Out. They will be performing in upcoming showcases during SXSW and CMW this March.
