I’ve always been a massive fan of Miike Snow and will never forget seeing them at Coachella back in 2012. Well, Christan has seemed to do what almost no one has done before, and play Coachella with 2 different groups. The latter being his new project with Style of Eye, entitled Galantis. For those that do not know, Galantis is a super group from Sweden with big room electro on the palate. Definitely hints of the infectious hooks we got so accustomed to back in the Miike Snow days. Don’t miss these guys out in the desert this weekend, as they put on quite a show!
Our friend, Christian Karlsson of Miike Snow, and more importantly Galantis, just dropped off the brand new official video for the smashing single, ‘Smile’ produced by himself & Linus Eklow AKA Style of Eye. The video is clean in simplicity, yet suggestive, and builds in tension, matching the energy of the tune perfectly. We can’t wait to see where this project heads next, but we know it will be out of this world.
#USCDerbyDays is proud to announce its partnership with Solé Bicycle Co.. In anticipation for Derby Days 2013 featuring Christian Karlsson of Miike Snow, The Knocks, and Dr. Fresch, Sole Bicycles is giving away a brand new bike for FREE! Enter the contest now and check out the recap video from last year after the jump!
Derby Days has been known for nearly a decade as a festive day of unique, top-notch performances, which then donates all proceeds to the fantastic organization that is the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. This year, Christian Karlsson of Miike Snow is playing, along with a live set by The Knocks, and USC’s own Dr. Fresch. I’m of course skeptical of any DJ set, particularly when performed by an artist known for a band and not a DJ act, but a Miike Snow DJ set is a clear exception. I highly recommend catching this elusive performance whenever possible. And, to make your life a little easier, we’ve got 4 pairs of tickets to give away. Enter here:
Crawling into the land of the living on Hallows eve, the creature is back. It took several necessary body parts to create this monster, and so the wait is finally over. I’m excited for this one because it really embodies some of the harder sets I’ve been playing lately, while also premiering some brand spankin new music from the likes of Boys Noize, Dillon Francis, Gesaffelstein, Botnek, Galantis (project trifecta of Savage Skulls, Miike Snow, Style Of Eye) and many more. The season is upon us, so listen to this and cause some mischief and mayhem, wake the dead, dance with the devil, get high, get mid, get low – pick your poison dirty dancers, and Happy Halloween.
After a heavy weekend of bashing my ears to death, they were absolutely delighted to hear this Flight Facilities mix of Miike Snow. A minute and a half in and I already got a sense that this was going to be a summer favorite of a mine in the same way I would get excited to hear a new Cut Copy track. Now almost half way through 2012, I probably wouldn’t be surprised to see it end up on a few charts at the end of the year.
The new record label project of Miike Snow’s Karlsson & Winnberg known as Robotberget just released the final track in their FREE compilation EP 1, celebrating the first 5 singles to be signed. Boasting a powerful medley of electro, techno, house and bass music, the solid roster features tracks by Carli (Savage Skulls), Style Of Eye, Alex Metric, MtheM and the awesome project Galantis (made up of Carli, Style Of Eye, and Karlsson!). The compilation marketing path released one track per week for the past 5, and we have the entire bundle for you to check out!
The music video for Miike Snow‘s new single, ‘The Wave,’ was unveiled today, and it is oddly brilliant — or brilliantly odd. Either way, Director Andreas Nillson (who also directed the video for ‘Paddling Out‘) does a marvelous job of storytelling through video and cinematography, and Miike Snow’s ‘The Wave’ acts as a perfect audial complement to the visual component. Read on for the plot description. Continue Reading
Treasure Fingers, the Atlanta bred DJ/Producer influenced by 80’s, Funk, and Disco, has been continuously dropping his own gems for quite sometime now, and his name is always equivalent with great dance music and constant ass shaking :D. You might remember him from his remixes for Empire of the Sun (Walking On a Dream), Miike Snow (Animal) & Tensnake (Coma Cat). Just in time to get your spring vibe on, he’s back with a new EP titled Rooftop Revival, fresh from the Scion A/V Studios. Continue Reading
