Les Freres Courvoisier at Libra, at the b.side lounge

All the way from France comes the sexy, deep techno of Les Freres Courvoisier. Okay, it isn't really French; it's local artists Jonathan Canupp (aka Ten and Tracer) and Joshua Smith's (aka Time for Trees) collaboration as the faux-French brothers Jean-Pierre and Stefan Courvoisier. Together they produce "sexy party music for lovers, thinkers and friends," as Smith puts it. "The most successful dance music, in my opinion, stems from a careful balance of sexiness and fun," he says, "and I think we ride that line like a naughty pony." The result is an involving blend of deep house and techno, spiked with a bit of pop and leaning toward the abstract — beautiful and complex, yet perfect to make out and/or dance to. And it's always delivered in a fun package: Les Freres enjoy dressing up in everything from matching track suits to cat costumes. See for yourself on Friday, October 16, at Libra, at the b.side lounge in Boulder (2017 13th Street).
