Classixx Unveil 'Grecian Summer' Ahead Of New Album
Los Angeles-based disco, house duo Classixx, comprised of Tyler Blake and Michael David, have released a new song "Grecian Summer" that is taken from their upcoming album expected sometime soon. The track comes with a trippy video filled with colorful visuals of constantly moving and evolving wavy shapes that move to the beat. It was made by their friend Steve Smith.
The track combines the two world they like to occupy - house and disco. Though those worlds intersect frequently and house owes its roots to disco, they combine the two genres in exciting way in "Grecian Summer." It starts out with a simple and punchy bass line before getting to a funky bass pluck that gives way for the other side of the song with its electric sides, soft synth chords and pitched vocal shouts.
They then meet in the middle as elements mix, match, combine and disappear as the track rolls along for four minutes.
This is the latest track to emerge from Classixx's upcoming album that is tentatively titled Faraway Reach according to a Twitter post they put up last month with the album title and tracklist written on a white board. They have already released their surprise collaboration with T-Pain titled "Whatever I Want," which had funk, soul and a little bit of sex involved.
Classixx released a cover of Natalie Prass' "Bird of Prey" with Joe Keefe as a special upload for Valentine's Day.
According to the Twitter video, the album should feature other collaborations with Passion Pit and How To Dress Well.
