HUMANS
Presently situated at the heart of the creative breeding ground that is East Vancouver, Robbie Slade and Peter Ricq come from Nelson BC and Montreal with distinct perspectives. Outside of music, Slade utilizes his communications degree from UBC in the Bass Coast Festival’s marketing department. When Ricq’s not making music, he is a producer, designer, writer and director for animated children’s TV shows with worldwide distribution. He’s also an illustrative visual artist. Inspired by animation, comics, and surrealist paintings, Ricq likes to create characters that are fun to draw and who can tell a whole story with just one picture, such as his Robbie character, with its big, crooked nose, who recently starred in the HUMANS video for “Possession” (oddly enough, the Robbie character actually existed several years before he met Slade). When Slade and Ricq get together as HUMANS, they assume the roles of producers and composers. They are a dynamic live indie electronic pop act in the vein of LCD Soundsystem, Jamie XX and Junior Boys that can impress audiophiles with their technical skills while curating a vibrant dance floor experience like a proper DJ would. HUMANS’ music has been created for and appeared in campaigns and TV shows including Red Bull, Entourage, CSI and MTV. In HUMANS, Slade performs guitar, microKORG synthesizers, Roland SPD-S sampler, and lead vocals. Ricq plays what he calls cheap-ass electronic gear, including a Korg Electribe ESX synthesizer/sampler, a Roland MC-505 groovebox, an Elektron Octatrack sampler, and the microKORG vocoder, while contributing backup vocals.
