Show stealers Dance Electric stormed the stage next, quickly blasting into their Blood Brothers/Refused screamo pop with enough energy to awaken the audience's docile derrieres. These kids blend hardcore and synth rock at a vigorous pace set by stellar drummer Tori Electric , who expertly apes many of fellow Mississauga native Sebastien Grainger's (ex-DFA1979) moves, right down to his sideways stage set-up.

Dance Electric
We Are Dance Electric ..Dance Electric-->
By Sam Sutherland

There are few bands whose names suit their sound quite as perfectly as Dance Electric. From this eight-song record's opening cry of "We are Dance Electric!," the dance-ability factor is clearly high, but the crushing instrumental explosion that immediately follows proves that the band's aggressive tendencies lurk only inches below the surface. At times sounding like a less purposely abrasive incarnation of early Blood Brothers, songs like "MDJ (A Million Dead Jocks)" mix the band's penchant for hooky rock'n'roll riffs with a Refused-influenced vocal delivery. Nowhere is this balance more perfectly achieved than on "The California Song," which somehow manages to connect a "Whoa-oh-oh" chorus with a heavy breakdown and an extended electronic dance break. In powerfully declaring their identity from second one, Dance Electric are able to drive that sonic style home for the proceeding 17 minutes of aggressive, danceable hardcore punk. ..We Are Dance Electric-->(Independent)

Bio


Punk seems to be a dirty word—a concrete definition of style, ideas, and politics. It has become safe and predictable and sucked void of the passion that made the music relevant.
Dance Electric’s mission is to dismiss these misguided preconceptions and to create something intense, sexy, and interactive.

Dance Electric brings catchy dance punk with a touch of explosive noise to your ears and groins. With influences such as Refused, The Red Light Sting, The Chinese Stars, and the Stooges, Dance Electric takes the same ruthless attitudes and meshes them together to create something musically powerful and beautiful.

Their live shows can simply be described as fun. Audience participation is a constant—the music seems to transcend the possession of the band and is shared with observers.

In the last two years Dance Electric has accomplished much. They have shared the stage with bigger acts such as Hostage Life and Attack in Black as well as playing surreal environments such as a healthy relationship seminar and an amateur wrestling match. More recently, Dance Electric has performed at Halifax Pop Explosion and has recorded a 2 song set for air in April on Sun TV.
Taking the DIY punk attitude, they ambitiously have recorded their own debut cd entitled “We are Dance Electric”. This cd contains 8 dance punk anthems which are both aggressive and catchy as hell.
Dance Electric works tirelessly all with a firm tongue placed in their collective cheek—determined to see what they can get away with next. You love Dance Electric and Dance Electric loves you.
