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.
Digitalism is a German electro duo, founded in 2004 in Hamburg, consisting of Jens "Jence" Moelle and Ismail "Isi" Tüfekçi. Jens likens Digitalism's songs to simple chapters in a complex novel about social interaction and attraction, with distorted baselines and thumping rhythms comprising the punctuation.
Digitalism is pioneering the electro-punk and indie dance movements, making appearances at festivals such as Coachella and various clubs worldwide.
Digitalism's debut album, Idealism, was released 9 May 2007 as Digitalism on Toshiba EMI Records in Japan, on May 21, 2007 on Kitsuné Music in France and on Astralwerks in North America. The album includes re-edits of the previously released singles "Jupiter Room", "Zdarlight" as well as their "Digitalism in Cairo" original re-edit of a track by the Cure which actually doesn't feature a sample from the track.
In June 2011, Digitalism released the second studioalbum, I love You Dude, on Cooperative Music. The ablum includes the previously released singles "Blitz" and Stratophere", the hit-single "2 Hearts" and a cooperation with Julian Casablancas. All over the sound on the second album has become more openminded. Digitalism's sound is crossing the limits between Electro, Rock and Indie.
Digitalism has remixed tracks for Tom Vek, The Futureheads, Daft Punk, Tiga, Klaxons, White Stripes, Monk, Depeche Mode, Cut Copy and many others. Their tracks and remixes are played by DJs such as Erol Alkan, Soulwax, Boys Noize, and Justice, among others.
Jens Moelle has released a solo EP on Kitsuné Music under the name Palermo Disko Machine.
Wes James is the slightly enigmatic Angeleno behind Le Youth, a producer without a past whose music is steeped in it. His signature sound is a blend of Clinton-era R&B and the house music that was lighting up dancefloors and radio stations around the globe during the same period, and the leisurely grooves, airy synthesizers, and pop hooks of a song like his debut single "C O O L" can easily pull a listener back to the pre-millennial, pre-Internet days when dance music offered a transcendentally blissful brand of hedonism that's considerably harder to find on today's aggro-edged EDM landscape.
"Over the past six months, 200,000 people have streamed Le Youth's sunshine disco track "Cool," which notably pulls from Cassie's "Me & U," and now Ultra have picked up the track for a legit, sample-cleared single release, out July 2nd. Even if you're on the fence about this one—sometimes it's hard to tell with a Cassie sample whether the producer is a true chef or just a waiter, passing off something that was great before they touched it—a breeze through Le Youth's Soundcloud shows he's got promise to spare." --Fader
Plastic Plates is the Dj/disco producer alias of Felix Bloxsom. Originally hailing from Sydney Australia, Felix is now based in Los Angeles.
Plastic Plates' distinct sound has attracted both indie, dance and mainstream pop artists to commission remixes from Felix. These artists include Adele, Sia, Body Language, The Human League, Sneaky Sound System, The Magician, Katy Perry and Mark Ronson.
The Magician, who regularly features Felix's remixes in his popular Magic Tapes, chose Mark Ronson – Record Collection 2012 (Plastic Plates Remix) in his top 10 remixes for 2011. Adele – Set Fire To The Rain (Plastic Plates Remix) was included in Aeroplane's best remixes of 2011 mixtape.
As a DJ Felix has performed in the USA, Europe, Mexico, Japan and Australia and has shared the stage with artists such as Breakbot, The Magician, Classixx, Etienne De Crecy, Mickey, U-tern, RAC and Bag Raiders.
Stay tuned for new original releases and plenty more remixes in 2012!
Malandro is the kind of producer who’s tech-house fit as well in pitch-black discotecas at night as in white beaches at sunrise. Between tropical rhythm and pulsing synthesizers he established himself as a nocturnal master of dancefloor intrigue and international beats. Behind his sunglasses, you can glimpse the islands from Manhattan to the Maldives, always trying to make people dance the night away.
