Classixx is a disco outfit based in Los Angeles, CA. The duo, Tyler Blake and Michael, formerly known as the "Young Americans", have been creating awesome productions over the past year, in addition to remixing Phoenix, Holy Ghost!, and Major Lazer, to name a few. I recently discovered their remix Major Lazer's "Cash Flow", and I daresay that it might be one of my favorite tracks of the year. Their remix of Holy Ghost's "I Will Come Back" comes in at a close second.

Their sound is uniquely authentic of classic disco of the 70s and early 80s. It's quite challenging to re-reate this sound without sounding cliche. Classixx songs feel like they have been time warped from the late 70s, perfectly reminiscient of the most awesome producers of the era, like Moroder, Nile Rogers and Steely Dan.
