Classixx
Classixx
One of the world’s most universally respected DJ duos, L.A.natives and childhood best friends Classixx have headlined everywhere from the famed Paris Social Club to New York’s Webster Hall, touring constantly since the release of their exuberant 2009 single“I’ll Get You,” which featured Lady Gaga songwriter Jeppe.
Following their breakout single with acclaimed remixes for Phoenix, Holy Ghost, Mayer Hawthorne, Groove Armada, Yacht, Major Lazer, Gossip and others, for the last two years Classixx have been intent on their debut Hanging Gardens, whittling the LP down from hundreds of sessions to a svelte 12 songs.

At once beaming, breezy and wistful, Hanging Gardens features a variety of coastal summer anthems, from haunting collaborations with Active Child and Superhumanoids singer Sarah Chernoff, to the gleefully catchy Nancy Whang featuring “All You’re Waiting For,” French Touch-inspired gem “Holding On” and sublime chords of “Dominoes.” Playing a wide array of instruments on Hanging Gardens, Classixx’ full length debut features impossibly sunny grooves, blithe melodies bred by the coast,coaxed out by the surf, expertly crafted for road trips, pool parties and dance clubs.
