Classixx (DJ Set)

Classixx (DJ Set)

Like a balmy breeze from a world of endless summer, Classixx are back with Faraway Reach, a buoyant follow-up to their 2013 debut -- something to cruise to with the top down, from festival fields to the beach, from the dance floor to the shotgun seat. 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. The album traverses locales, vocalists and inspirations. It's a fitting movement for the duo, from Venice beach to the mountains of South Africa and everywhere in between -- a Faraway Reach.

Martín Miguel is the brains behind DC-based house imprint Better Listen Records, which has pressed up over 15 releases in just three years. Beyond that, MM is a District staple; holding it down regularly at Eighteenth Street Lounge, Flash, and U Street Music Hall.
