Los Angeles Duo Michael David and Tyler Blake came to attention producing high profile remixes for acts including Phoenix and Holy Ghost. In 2009 they released breakout hit 'I’ll Get You', a bullet of pure pop joy that featured guest vocals from Jeppe of Junior Senior fame. Four years on and they have produced their debut album. While a four year layover is pretty standard fare in electronic music, there’s an expectation for something new, or at least a refining of their core sound.
After two years and hundreds of songs, DJ duo Classixx are about to release their long awaited debut album. While In Australia for a one-off show, Larry Heath talked to Michael David about the album, plans for the future, and their favourite releases of 2012.

The pop-up venue had been open for a week now, and many had already taken advantage of the beautiful historical space, either at a paying gig, or at the "free in paradiso" events. The venue never ceases to amaze however, and it is hoped that the city will continue to use the potential of this room in the future.

Barely into their twenties, Classixx have begun defining a new sound for the Los Angeles electronic music scene, with their Donna Summer’esque grooves and pillowy synths catching the ears of music aficionados, fans and artists alike.
