D.C.-based production duo Benoit & Sergio have been making waves in the dance world since 2009's What I've Lost, and the group's just-released New Ships EP is full of wide-screen house that sails toward even more buoyant shores.
"Lipstick and Lace" builds from spare synths and breathy vocals toward a can't-help-it-but-dance finish, while the title track spins an emotional take on house that's also a career highlight. "Not In Your Nature," on the other hand, hits a lounge-y groove that would be the perfect soundtrack to after-hours drinks. Which reminds us, if you're in NYC this Saturday, check out its show at The Standard Hotel's Le Bain, and listen to New Ships the way it's supposed to be heard.
