The bunch includes Andy, from Philadelphia, who worked for a neuroscientist before pursuing his career in music. Also builds his own multitouch music controllers. Eric, hailing from the Bay Area, and Ben (more affectionately known as Swardy), once rode a bicycle across America, and really likes five-dollar footlongs.
In a world saturated with ironic hipster jams and electro imitators, San Francisco trio Pance Party has found a way to catapult themselves above the noise with their innovative and incomparable production. Astonishingly complex, yet instantly accessible, Pance Party’s sound boldly defies the expectations of dance music to create something as memorable as it is musical. From the beautiful chord arrangements of “Simi” and “Let’s Get Invisible!” to the massive energy of “Kim Jong Thrill” and “Mumble”, Pance Party continues the full frontal assault on the boundaries of dance music in the proud tradition of crossover acts like Daft Punk and deadmau5.
Supported by some of the world’s biggest DJs, including the renowned Benny Benassi, Pance Party has raised their flag at the forefront of dance music innovation with their chart-topping remixes and originals. Their debut EP, Kim Jong Thrill EP, saw all four tracks reach Beatport’s top ten in their respective genres, while their remixes have consistently hit number one on The Hype Machine’s “Popular” chart.
These include official remixes for Benny Benassi (feat. Kelis & Apl.De.Ap of the Black Eyed Peas – on Ultra Records), Felix Cartal, Chester French, AmpLive of Zion I, Miles Dyson, Blatta & Inesha, SomethingALaMode, and more, with upcoming remixes for Peace Treaty (on Dim Mak Records) and Skrillex.
This success has seen Pance Party play alongside acts from Benny Benassi to Miami Horror, rocking dance floors across the country, from LA’s Avalon, to San Francisco’s Mezzanine, to Club Kronos in Puerto Rico and South by Southwest in Austin, TX
And really, this all should come as no surprise. Working out of legendary rock band Journey’s old studio in San Francisco, the three 24-year-old members of Pance Party are no strangers to success. Skilled songwriters and talented instrumentalists, dynamic artists and computer wizards, the members of Pance Party are constantly pushing the limits of what a group can create – including construction of a massive LED lighting rig for their live show and programming their own synthesizers and performance software. This dynamic allows Pance Party to make music that is simply impossible to replicate and impossible to resist.
