Tyler Blake and Michael David, childhood friends, started a DJ duo in the suburbs of LA and by their early twenties Classixx began to redefine the sound for the Los Angeles electronic music scene. Changing it from the banger-driven electro that had been dominating dance floors, to their smooth blend of disco, new wave, funk, house, and indie rock catching the ears of music aficionados, fans and artists alike. Recent remixes for groundbreaking and diverse artists include Phoenix, Mayer Hawthorne, Fischerspooner, Groove Armada, Drop the Lime and Major Lazer made Classixx "staples in DJ sets all over the world". Pitchfork Media wrote that the duo gave Phoenix's "Lisztomania" "a gorgeously pillowy synth-disco framework". The Los Angeles Times called it "pure disco cotton candy".
Following the release of their debut hit single, "I'll Get You" featuring Jeppe (Junior Senior), in the summer of 2009 on Paris based Kitsune Records, Classixx is now prepping their debut album for release this winter.
A soundscape of dreamy synths, emotive vocals, and tropical disco grooves, Goldroom paints the picture of summertime in Los Angeles. Influenced heavily by French Touch innovators like Alan Braxe and Fred Falke, Goldroom has crafted an uniquely Californian take on the genre, incorporating live instrumentation and percussion with elements of downtempo disco to create something more than the sum of its parts.
