Born in the sunny suburbs of Los Angeles, Classixx grew up to be a music school drop-out and a record label drop-out. Classixx are currently living in the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area. They are currently single. Barely into their twenties, Classixx has begun defining a new sound for the Los Angeles electronic music scene. A refreshing change from the trance and techno inspired Electro that has been dominating dance floors, their Donna Summer'esque grooves have caught the ears of music aficionados, fans and artists alike. With recent remixes for groundbreaking artists such as Phoenix, The Ting Tings, Shiny Toy Guns and The Sounds their funky midtempo sound is turning heads everywhere. This summer they'll be releasing their single, "I'll Get You" featuring Jeppe (Junior Senior), as the debut track from the new collaboration between Kitsune Records and photoblogger Mark TheCobraSnake.
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.
