STUDIO prides itself on bringing an outstanding selection of musicians from all over the world to enrich the music scene in Hong Kong. On April 7 (Saturday) from 11pm, it is our honour to have the LA DJ – producer duo Classixx, performing an exclusive DJ set at STUDIO.
Cutting their teeth on post-punk and jazz before house and disco, L.A. natives and lifelong best friends Michael David and Tyler Blake have been on the road non-stop since the release of their exuberant 2009 single "I'll Get You".
While touring as a DJ duo, Classixx bolstered their profile with scintillating remixes for the likes of Phoenix, Holy Ghost and Major Lazer, and as fans clamored for more breezy summer anthems from the duo, they delivered their critically acclaimed debut Hanging Gardens, an album that felt like a wistful dream. Classixx then unveiled their formidable live show at Coachella 2014, and continued to make waves on tour, while recording their uncompromisingly sunny followup Faraway Reach.
Faraway Reach casts Classixx's young-but-nostalgic melodies and sublime chords in a more mature, restrained light, albeit no less lively and bright. Establishing themselves as producers of note on their debut LP (Pitchfork called them “great songwriters, too”), Faraway Reach delivers powerfully smooth and soulful jewels that are still decidedly their own - the Classixx signature is one that can’t be traced. Their love of plaintive voices and disco-inspired grooves is as evident as ever, but this time around everything is a bit bolder, the cast is bigger, the melodies distilled into a higher potency - it’s all just as good, but better.
Being described as L.A.’s best dance music duo, Classixx have headlined the famed Paris Social Club and New York’s Webster Hall, throwing down crowd-favorite sets at Coachella, Governor’s Ball, Outside Lands and everywhere in between.
We look forward to seeing you there!
