About this item

Classixx’s debut album on Innovative Leisure brings together their signature blend of shimmering melody, disco and house into a stunning and surprising full length.

Described as “consistently impressive” (Prefix Mag) and as “remixers that can turn anything into a slice of summer bliss”, (Pitchfork), Classixx is Michael David and Tyler Blake, childhood friends from LA who began recording together in 2007. One of the world’s most acclaimed DJ duos, Classixx are master selectors, and there’s a kinship between their choices as DJs and their original works, drawn from a palette of similarly pop-minded melancholics like Fleetwood Mac, Prince, and Alan Braxe.

Following their breakout single ‘I’ll Get You’ with acclaimed remixes for Phoenix, Holy Ghost, Mayer Hawthorne, Groove Armada, YACHT, Major Lazer, Gossip and more, for the last two years Classixx have been honing their debut album ‘Hanging Gardens’. No ordinary dance record, ‘Hanging Gardens’ features vocals from Active Child, Nancy Whang, Sarah Chernoff of Superhumanoids, Jeppe of Junior Senior and Jessie Kivel of Kisses. Tyler and Blake play a number of instruments on the album, from guitar and piano to analogue synth and Central American drums.

At once beaming, breezy and wistful, ‘Hanging Gardens’ is truly a child of Classixx’s LA home.
