You can listen to that new Classixx album that I’ve been gabbing about for months now on NPR – one week ahead of its release on Innovative Leisure. They’ve already previewed “Holding On,” “Borderline,” and “All You’re Waiting For” but much every indie dance fan’s happiness, there are nine more originals where those came from. Also a bit of a surprise, they are finally releasing “I’ll Get You” which has been floating around the internet since 2009.
If you’ve been trolling for a shining example 2013′s sticky sweet disco-inspired production trend, the search is over. Today Los Angeles’s Classixx are previewing the third track off their debut album Hanging Gardens and things are shaping up to be as solid as ever for the duo. “All You’re Waiting For” features (the former) LCD Soundsystem’s Nancy Whang, modulated synths, majorly happy chords, and a healthy dose of sunshine.

Los Angeles-based production duo Tyler Blake and Michael Davis (or Classixx for those of you who tend towards those sticky sweet nu-disco sounds already) have long been known for spot on remixes for Phoenix, Mayer Hawthorne, Passion Pit, YACHT — the list goes on. They’ve put out some original work, but only now have announced the impending release of their first full length artist album Hanging Gardens on May 14th. The first tune off the LP, “Holding On,” is about as shiny as they come. Classixx recruits all the best elements of a blissful dance track — a snarling bass, twinkly top line, strings, piano riffs, and heartbreaking vocal. It’s an Endless Summer, y’all.
