Hot Natured’s new track, ‘Reverse Skydiving’, is to be released today. I’m a fan of the original, but I’m especially enjoying DC based Benoit & Sergio’s remix. They definitely add a lighter more summery feel to the track as if it wasn’t already a summer jam. Check it out.
Hot Natured – Reverse Skydiving (Benoit & Sergio Remix)
DC (whattt up hometown) based duo Benoit & Sergio are planning quite the return with their new EP, New Ships, also the title of this track featured here today.
They’ve had a busy year of touring and it continues for me on the 26th when I plan on checking em out here in SF. This upbeat track here has more than excited. “Their signature opaque vocals are still there, but the track sparks and ignites thanks to arpeggiated keyboards that are more aggressively stadium than anything the duo has ever laid on wax.”
Benoit & Sergio – New Ships
A nice little remix from Tensnake that happened to come on my ipod during my coastal California road trip this past weekend. This happened to come on after passing through Santa Cruz. The sun was out, the windows down, and life was good. I love that a song about letting go that is sad (or liberating depending on your situation) can be so happy to me because of the music. Feel it.

Also check a thetrashjuice favorite, Benoit & Sergio, take on the song.
I just recently posted a Benoit & Sergio song so I’ll spare you the bio. Just know that you should be paying attention to these two if you’re not already. I can’t get enough. The Metronomy remix is no different. Such a smooth and deep tune. Dig it.
This remix is taken from Metronomy’s remix album, The English Riviera Unreleased Remixes, out March 6, 2012! Find it on iTunes - http://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/metronomy/id9450412
Metronomy – Corinne (Benoit & Sergio Cover)
I am loving this tune by Benoit & Sergio… my DC homeboys. Although neither one of them grew up in DC, it’s always nice to see some talent coming outta that citaaaayy. Musically DC doesn’t get much credit in the electronic game.
“The duo draws from influences mostly uncommon to the house and techno zeitgeist; bands like Talking Heads, Pavement and Roxy Music are sources of inspiration, along with contemporary electronic acts like Thomas Melchior and Ricardo Villalobos. All these influences resonate clearly in their music, joined by a kind of sexualized melodrama that makes its way into lyrics about loneliness, French girls, wine and Ferraris. Yet while their lyrics might speak of loneliness, their recent releases have been crowding dance floors.”
