Benoit & Sergio produce dance songs that sometimes seem like musical open letters; editorials narrated in the voices of unidentified, yet totally recognizable colorful characters, read aloud against a backdrop of beautifully lush, warm and sensuous electronic pop music. 

The French/American duo met at an after party in Washington DC, and it wasn’t long before their signature combination of rich synth work combined with pop influenced lyrical magic and impressive songwriting had been released on labels such as thesongsays, Spectral Sound, DFA, Visionquest, Hot Creations and Culprit.

Benoit & Sergio draw from influences mostly uncommon to the house and techno zeitgeist; bands like The Talking Heads, Pavement and Roxy Music are all sources, along with electronic acts ranging from Daft Punk to Ricardo Villalobos.
