Tour Alert: The Presets, Dragonette and Classixx

conspiracykeanu-whoa

This May, The Presets and Dragonette come together for an extensive co-headline across North America. Although coming from opposite sides of the world (Australia and Canada respectively), both share recognition globally for their electric live shows – hailed by audiences and critics as infectious, dynamic and irrepressible.

The Presets tour this May in support of their recently released album Pacifica. Featuring ten prismatic, synth-laced songs, Pacifica ventures boldly into new, uncharted musical territories, traversing both light and shade in energy and emotion.

Fresh from US dates with Major Lazer, Dragonette will be showcasing material from their latest long player Bodyparts. From emotion-packed ballads to fist-pumping anthems, Bodyparts fuses heavy-hitting electro rhythms with pulsing beats, and sing-along choruses.

The Presets captured the world’s imagination with their blitzkrieg sophomore Apocalypso. Spawning five hit singles and Triple Platinum sales in Australia, Apocalypso set dizzying new heights for dance music in Australia. The single “My People” is the longest charting Australian single in ARIA chart history. Pacifica is following suit – acclaimed Album of The Year in a dozen Australian publications, and the single “Ghosts” recently awarded Single of the Year (Readers’ Choice) for at the 4th annual Australian Rolling Stone Awards.

Dragonette has also racked up an impressive list of accomplishments in the past year: a JUNO Award win for their hit single “Hello,” a live performance on Good Morning America, and a second JUNO nomination for Dance Recording of the Year for Bodyparts.

The bands will be joined in most markets by acclaimed LA duo, Classixx, performing tracks live from their upcoming debut Hanging Gardens, a svelte selection of impossibly sunny grooves, expertly crafted for road trips, pool parties and dance clubs (All shows except Salt Lake City, Phoenix and San Francisco).

Highly Anticipated: Debut Album from Classixx

classixx

LA producer/DJ duo Classixx are excited to announce the release of their anticipated debut album, Hanging Gardens on May 14th via Innovative Leisure. Since their breakout 2009 single “I’ll Get Youthe pair have remixed the likes of Mayer Hawthorne, Major Lazer, Phoenix, YACHT and Passion Pit among others.

Over the course of the last two years, childhood friends Michael David and Tyler Blake have spent countless hours in the studio with a variety of instruments crafting the 12 pop-infused dance tunes, that would become Hanging Gardens. It features collaborations with Active Child, Sarah Chernoff of Superhumanoids, Nancy Whang of LCD Soundsystem (who provides vocals on pop gem “All You’re Waiting For”), and, of course, Lady Gaga songwriter Jeppe on “I’ll Get You”. This debut packs airy tracks with touches of the Pacific coast that are destined to become summer anthems.
