Gang Signs - “Mate"

Peter Ricq is a creative work-a-holic. He’s made a career by bringing dreams to reality as the creator of animated television series, as a visual artist and the right brain of the electronic musical duo, Humans. With his latest project, Gang Signs’ Geist, Ricq is bringing other peoples nightmares to life as dance floor romances. Though the thick beats and snapshot lyrics may seem to paint the portrait of a modern day romance, the majority of the lyrics on the forthcoming Geist began as adaptations of 1980s horror movie plots.

Ricq explains, “The fly isn’t about Jeff Goldblum turning into a Fly and becoming a murderer, no it’s about Gena Davis’ character trying to love a madman, posing the question “What do I do when the one I love is a murderous monster?”"

So rules are made to be broken? “Yeah of course. Gang Signs was originally going to be my surf rock band.”

It’s a good thing too. As Gang Signs dances between self control/defiance, they have won over fans in hometown Vancouver. Since the debut of their independent releases, every summer has belonged to Gang Signs as they snag the best opening gigs in the city with the likes of No Joy, Operators, Tanlines and Owen Pallet.
