We leave behind summer in style with Classixx, who recently shared a succulent and juicy new jam named Possessive that samples Nick Jonas’ Jealous. I suppose being possessive and jealous tends to be synonymous, and I nearly want to be selfish and keep this one all to myself to secretly dance my way through the colder months of the year, but that would be an injustice. The Los Angeles electronic dance purveyors craft a funky disco jam out of the original gospel sample, and they’ve made the track a freedownload to “extend the pool party.” They even linked up with Vaughn “U-Tern” Oliver (yes, of fellow SoCal dance outfit Oliver) to craft the verdant and vivacious electro banger. Grab the jam, here.

Yesterday, I found out on RAC’s socials that he’d announced his new album EGO, out on July 14th. After I did a requisite happy dance around the room, I noticed that the Grammy award winning producer was asking his multitude of fans to guess who the featured artists might be on EGO. It’s a tough challenge considering all the musicians who would love to work with the esteemed artist, and I certainly would never have guessed the guest on today’s new single, I Still Wanna Know. This summertime prancer and luminous dazzler features none other than Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo, who lends his vocals and a guitar solo to the heartwarming indie dance anthem. I Still Wanna Know also feature additional production by Classixx. Turns out,

Allen Anjos, Classixx, and Rivers Cuomo make a sublime team. Together, they’ve crafted a dance pop gem that ventures into alt pop and pop rock territory. The sleek throbbing, riff soaring spectacular is available to stream/download, here. You can pre-order EGO, here. I’ll be awaiting that ebullient RAC dance party when he plays Outside Lands Music Festival come August.

I was one of the few lucky ones that attended an intimate, sold out Local Natives show at Popscene when they first revealed new music from their 2016 album Sunlit Youth, and as energetic and vivacious that glorious set was, I never imagined the sort of dance remixes that would emerge from the exemplary gems from the record. Come March 2017, the Silver Lake quintet will be heading back out on tour across the East Coast and Midwest in support of the album. To celebrate the news, they’ve unleashed a disco luscious, wispy ambrosial remix of Dark Days by nu-disco maestros Classixx. The duo turns the song into a foggy luxuriant, dreamy swirling floater more “phosphorescent” than “dark”.

In case you haven’t heard, a brand new star studded new Classixx album is on its way. Faraway Reach drops on June 3rd, and it features a dazzling roster of guests, including De Lux, Passion Pit, T-Pain, Panama, Harriet Brown, and more. The Los Angeles duo unveiled their song Just Let Go today, which features How To Dress Well. It’s been some time since we last heard from How To Dress Well’s Tom Krell, and his warm crooning is much welcome on Classixx’s bright and airy house jam. Cool and refreshing Just Let Go urges me to do exactly that as I surrender to its breezy light embrace. Pre-order Classixx’s new album or purchase the newly revealed single from iTunes.

I already listened to this many times since it was first premiered at the beginning of this past weekend. I gasped the moment I saw it announced, being a huge fan of both Australian synthpop band RÜFÜS (du Sol) and Los Angeles nu-disco duo Classixx. In a super multi-continent meetup, Classixx has remixed RÜFÜS’ Sundream, and it’s a match made in heaven. Sundream, indeed! The remix will be featured on RÜFÜS’ new Sundream EP, out June 23.

Salva remix of Classixx’ A Stranger Love

May 7, 2014

Classixx really delighted me last year with their album Hanging Gardens, and on it, is the fantastic dance pop tune A Stranger Love. Today, the duo debuted a remix by fellow Los Angeles producer Salva, and it’s such a terrific, effervescent future bass and trap version of the track.

One of my favorite new tunes of last week was Sydney electropop act Panama’s beautiful Always. It’s with great pleasure that I came upon a new remix last night by none other than Los Angeles nu-disco duo Classixx! Classixx throws in some funky bass and disco groove, as well as some awesome, spacey, languid guitar riffs. Watch the video for the fantastic original song again below. Time to go on a vacation. Somewhere warm. Somewhere sunny. Somewhere where I can lounge and play these on repeat, then melt into the sand.
