Everyone wants more classics Classixx in their catalog, yeah? "Valley Vacation" was released into the inter-wild today, but it's not from Hanging Gardens . Pretty strange. Also pretty awesome. It's not as fetching as the other singles we've seen come through, but it's still great.
Classixx are unstoppable! Their debut album just been released, but they already has a new single out. Go, Classixx go!!! Please never stop!
En début de semaine, les américains Michael David et Tyler Blake aka Classixx sortaient leur tant attendu premier album, Hanging Gardens , sur Innovative Leisure . Un album qui, je ne vais pas vous le cacher, est tout simplement incroyable et nous emmène sur les côtes de la Californie. Un must-have pour cet été ! Et si vous n'en avez pas eu assez, rassurez-vous, ils viennent de dévoiler un track bonus nommé Valley Vacation qui est dans la continuité de l'album et qui faire durer notre voyage un peu plus longtemps. On ne s'en [...]
Check out a non-album track from the LA duo.
Photos and words by Leslie Kalohi The weekend came early with a dance party courtesy of co-headliners The Presets and Dragonette at the Avalon Hollywood. With the U.S. tour winding down, both bands brought tons of energy, good vibes, and plenty of danceable beats. Complete with LCD screens and colorful flashing lasers, Sydney’s beloved electronic duo delivered yet another strong set for LA fans. Though still tirelessly touring behind last year’s Pacifica, The Presets showed no sign of wear in front of the weekday revelers. Toronto’s Dragonette delivered infectious electropop, propelled by frontwoman [...]
Classixx released their fucking incredible album "Hanging Gardens" earlier this month, and, with their single "Holding On" bumping out of every early-summer car windows from Miami to Madrid and back again, they're poised to take over the summer DJ throne. Their mix for Solé Bicycles is surprisingly fucking bouyant for a quickie sponsored mix. You'll hear some great mid-energy dance music here carefully curated by the Los Angeles duo that should carry you into the sunshine. Follow @nedhepburn
Max Bell went to high school in the valley. He never forgets. For those of you who hated the Daft Punk album, or just felt okay about it , there is Classixx—the Oak Park duo of Michael David and Tyler Blake who've moved from more than solid DJs/remixers to truly solid artists in their own right (see also: here ).Under the Classixx moniker, the pair produced a stellar batch of house/disco/funk called Hanging Gardens , which saw release last week (May 14th) on LA's Innovative Leisure. Because I really enjoy music [...]
Jeez Classixx , slow down a bit! I guess Classixx are like busses, you wait ages for something to come along then it all comes along at one. No sooner had the poolside Disco duo released two stung singles and a seriously awesome album, Hanging Gardens , than they are releasing another new track, a groovy Deep Disco cut called Valley Vacation . Valley Vacation is a nice, optimistic slice of synth Disco. Breezy and carefree, the track rolls an a driving arpeggiated bassline that keeps the dance groove going while all [...]

FRAMES describes the track: "It's [...]
The Classixx have done it again, mastering the sounds of the summer with their non-LP track Valley Vacation . The Las Angeles based duo brings the perfect combination of waves and breaks to get you movin and groovin, then calls on a sweaty/sexy sax solo to really lay you back. Must say that that GetLiftedTonight is ready for some summer boogieing! Powerslug Presents Classixx + Fred Falke Who: Powerslug What: Classixx + Fred Falke When: June [...]
A few days ago, our favorite LA duo Classixx , Michael David and Tyler Blake, finally dropped their debut album "Hanging Gardens" and it's definitely worth the long wait! For us, this great album is a one-way ticket to sunny California and will certainly get some serious rotations on the road this summer. And if that’s not enough, Classixx just shared a non-LP track, called "Valley Vacation", a sun-kissed summery jam for your next road trip. As we read, this track is a "reference to their late-night escape from their old studio, [...]
Somehow, someway, we've been treated to another synth-inspired journey courtesy of Los Angeles duo, Classixx and their label, Innovative Leisure. Classixx released their debut album during the Daft Punk hysteria, but that hasn't stopped them from being spotted everywhere from Times Square in New York, to sold out venues in California for tours with The Presets and Holy Ghost! 'Valley Vacation' is a signature Classixx track through and through. It's easily filed under "beach music" and "summertime jams" along with the majority of the tracks off their debut album, 'Hanging Gardens'. The steady percussion slowly builds [...]
It's that time of year when indie bands and producers start doing everything in their power to craft the summer jam to end all summer jams. Today, we've got Classixx ' entry: "Valley Vacation," a new song that, for some reason, was left off the LA duo's recently-released debut Hanging Gardens . It's a woozy, bubbly cut that sounds like its title - airy vocal samples, breezy synths, soothing Balearic beats - and that should definitely be a contender for your go-to summer mixtape jam. Check it out. Read more [...]
We just got more electro disco from LA duo Classixx in the form of their song "Valley Vacation." Following the ... Read the full article at http://www.prefixmag.com/media /classixx/valley-vacation/7376 8/
Hanging Gardens , the debut LP from Classixx , has only been out a week, but various tracks from the fantastic release have slowly been infiltrating our various mixes for parties and outdoor get-togethers, lately. The album serves as the perfect compliment to any and all things summer. To build on the momentum of the release, the Los Angeles pair dropped the new and non-LP cut "Valley Vacation." It is a mesmerizing, synthed-out instrumental. Stream it below.
Photos and words by Ethan Shvartzman Mixing older tunes with some new, summer was happening at the Troubadour as Holy Ghost! came to town. The percussion-heavy (3 drum kits on stage), old analog synth-drenched brand of DFA-dance-rock got the crowd grooving. The band members rotated through various instruments and at times the stage resembled a mad scientist's layer as they congregated behind the synth banks engrossed in the nearly infinite rows of nobs and wires. The set closer "It Gets Dark" was a winner. Local faves Classixx hit a high note early in their [...]
Earlier this month, California space disco wizards Classixx unveiled their breathtaking debut full-length, Hanging Gardens . The slow trickle of remixes and singles the duo had released in the lead-up to that long-awaited LP had already established their penchant for silky-smooth retrofuturistic production, but few could have predicted the groundbreaking tour de force the album turned out to be. One of our favorite releases of the year, it somehow condenses the blissful expansiveness of Balearica into tight hook-driven dance music. With Daft Punk-esque savvy, its exotic, diverse soundscapes renew timeworn dance cliches without [...]
As the weather heats up and Classixx 's suprisingly great debut record Hanging Gardens moves into even heavier rotation around here, the LA duo drops a new summer-appropriate non-LP track called " Valley Vacation ." "That sax solo, tho ." [ via ]
Classixx has put up a good fight with their latest album, "Hanging Gardens," to claim their stake as conquerors of the summer jamz circuit. The only other release that stands in their way is the gargantuan release from Daft Punk, but that was expected. Saturday night saw the duo behind their keyboards to get the party started with a short(er) set that included the pre-recorded vocals on "All You're Waiting For," but that didn't take away from those that had an itch to cut a rug. The SoCal kids sounded great, but the lack of live [...]
