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!
See them Saturday 9:35 – 1035 at the Gobi Stage
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.
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.

Utrecht-based Dem Slackers is riding this wave of dance music explosion like a champ. The dude has had releases on the world’s top dance music imprints including Tiesto‘s Musical Freedom, Dim Mak, and most recently Ultra Music, and word on the streets is that he just finished his latest EP less than a week ago. I suppose we’ll see where that one ends up. On top of his consistent release schedule, Dem Slackers will be starting up a brand new radio show and will be heading up a HUGE showcase night at ADE this year alongside Style of Eye, Mightyfools, and more. With all of this going on, he still had time to put together a pumping Electro House mix exclusively for us here at GDD™. Stream + download below and tracklist after the jump!

You’ve all probably heard the new Swedish House Mafia anthem, Save The World, by now, and if you haven’t, you will probably around 100 times this summer. It’s a big track with some heartwarming vocals, and our buddy Style Of Eye teamed up with Carli of Savage Skulls to make their own little rendition of it. I think I have to agree with my friend Nate over at Chemical Jump that this hits better than the original for me. What do you guys think?

Pay attention kiddos, big tunes ahead! In this week’s edition of “The Dirt,” we are proud to present the incredibly talented, Linus Eklow, aka Style of Eye. The Stockholm native is known for his eclectic sound, which stylistically utilizes a fresh blend of techno, house and a healthy dose of raw, grinding electro. He has had a considerable amount of success with releases on Dirtybird Records, whom you’ll recall from the from Claude VonStroke/Justin Martin CONTROL at Avalon last Friday. With support from some of dance music’s biggest names (John Dahlback, Tiga, and Swedish House Mafia to name a few), Style Of Eye is on track to fulfilling DJ Mag’s prediction of becoming an “Important Future Star.” We predict he will continually blow us away with innovative productions, pumping DJ sets and generally just being a really cool guy. Most of these are unreleased or brand new so read more for streams of his top tracks with my commentary after the jump…
