Benoit & Sergio Announces New EP for Visionquest; Hear a Track Now
- Words: Kat Leinhart
Production duo Benoit & Sergio has announced an imminent return to Visionquest, the label founded by Seth Troxler, Ryan Crosson, Lee Curtiss, and Shaun Reeves. Since 2009, the pair has logged appearances on platforms such as Spectral Sound, DFA, Hot Creations, and Culprit, but identify Visionquest as their "spiritual home." The duo first surfaced on the label back in 2011 with Where The Freaks Have No Name, followed by the New Ships EP. Now, the forthcoming Your Darkness EP showcases the pair's knack for crafting playful, melodic house and techno, as ever capitalizing on catchy melodic lines, vocal samples, and dancefloor-directed rhythms.
The Berlin and DC-based partners are also reportedly in the process of completing a debut album, a record which will be co-produced with Darkside (a.k.a. Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington) and is set to appear on Jaar's Other People imprint. In the meantime, the three-track Your Darkness EP is due out on vinyl on July 14, with a digital version to be made available on July 28. A-side cut "Your Darkness" can be streamed in full below, where the record's complete tracklist has also been included.
