Tyler Blake and Michael David, childhood friends, started a DJ duo in the suburbs of Los Angeles. The name Classixx came from their liking of classic compilations of different music. The DJ duo is influenced by a plethora of music, ranging from old school R&B to Paul Simon to Kraftwerk.
In their early twenties, Classixx were part of the new wave of the Los Angeles electronic music. A change from the banger-driven electro that had been dominating dance floors, their sound was a smooth blend of disco, new wave, funk, house, and indie rock.
According to Chicagoist, Classixx "became staples in DJ sets all over the world".
Pitchfork Media wrote that the duo gave Phoenix's "Lisztomania" "a gorgeously pillowy synth-disco framework". The Los Angeles Times called it "pure disco cotton candy".
Classixx's debut single, "I'll Get You" featuring Jeppe (Junior Senior), was released in the summer of 2009 on Paris based Kitsune Records.
Classixx's first album, Hanging Gardens, was released on May 14, 2013 via Innovative Leisure.
Classixx announced their second album via Instagram on February 17, 2016. The album features guest appearances by Passion Pit, T-Pain, De Lux, Alex Frankel, How to Dress Well, Nonku, Harriet Brown, Isles and Panama. The album is expected to be released in Summer 2016.

From the moment of arrival to the moment of departure the staff could not do enough to make our vacation easy, relaxed and enjoyable.
Whilst difficult to call out any one team, the team at Starfish Bloo really went over and above for us.
Another often forgotten group who were by far pne of the best I have seen were the Style (housekeeping) team.
They really delivered on Whatever Whenever...securing a cocktail from the Lounge bar to have at ICE, making sure we had a great table for dinner on our last night, quickly supplying additional water in our room when I was ill and the speed with which they attended to our room when we had been on DND earlier. The Style team would have been the most responsive I have seen of any hotel.
Nothing seemed to much bother for any of the team.
We are already looking forward to our next trip.
BTW, the villas are great for a relaxing holiday, gravitating from poolside to daybed to chilling on your sofa. One thing I would change is Nespresso machines instead of plunger coffee.
