HUMANS is a Canadian indie-electronic duo made up of musicians Robbie Slade and Peter Ricq.
Since coming together, HUMANS have established themselves by creating sounds that successfully fuse experimental electronic elements with catchy indie-pop hooks. Focusing on performance and production styles of both the past and present, HUMANS have consistently impressed upon audiophiles with their technical and compositional skills. Using a combination of synthesizers and instruments, the sound has a certain way of being very unique, while not tied down to one specific genre.
Their debut LP, Noontide is an evolution of HUMANS carefully constructed, innovative mix of heavy electronics and modern pop sensibilities. The album is a synthesis of time and space, and a testament to the many influences that make up the band’s core. Noontide was released February 24th 2015 via Hybridity Music, one of Canada’s leading independent electronic labels. The album captured the attention of fans and industry alike earning them nominations at Canada’s Junos and Western Canadian Music Awards for “Electronic Album of the Year”.
2016 has been a banner year for the duo so far with their new EP Water Water released on March 4 via New York label Mom & Pop in the USA and Haven Sounds in Canada.
Max is a pioneer on the West Coast, pushing his own unique brand of house and techno. He is half of Sabota, and a charter member of Lighta! Sound, which has been instrumental in the building of Vancouver’s underground movement for the better part of a decade.
Max’s music has been played by notable performers such as Addison Groove, Skream, B Traits, Shadow Child, Grenier, &ME, and Breakage and he has shared the stage with a who’s who of contemporary dance music.
