The Sweet Smell of Success: CLASSIXX


Tyler Blake (my nephew) & Michael David – Classixx






Success is sweet, and my nephew, Tyler Blake, is about to experience a whole new level of it. He and Michael David, aka Classixx, have put out some very cool singles over the years and hit it big with lots of remixes, but they tour so much it's taken them a while to release their first full album. That's all about to change, though, because their highly anticipated LP (Holding On) drops May 14th. Already, the reviews are good...and this one from the Huffington Post is especially fine. I hope you'll take a minute to read it. (Be sure to pass up the first section about Rhye and scroll down to the second part of the article, titled Classixx.)

Here, for your listening pleasure, are a couple of tracks from Holding On. Club music isn't my genre, but these California guys have a vibe that's as chill and mellow as a summer day. And listening to them is sure to make you happy.

It takes watching kids working hard to realize their dreams, to inspire some of us older 'fogies' to keep stretching, doesn't it? Congratulations to two very cool kids!

I love dance music, Sue! Naturally, I was delighted to tune into your YouTube videos to listen to your nephews talent. This is great news to hear Classixx will be debuting their first album in May. I will have to try to feature them on my blog during freebie week on Monday's Music Moves Me. Keep me posted! Great fun 'S' post for the Alphabe-Thursday classroom! ;)

Amy said...

I am going to have to come back to listen to this! I have sleeping family in the room right now so can't have sound on, but that is so great for them! I love hearing stories of struggling artists having success!
