Swedish duo, Christian Karlsson and Linus Eklow, also known as Galantis, are famous for their tracks “Peanut Butter Jelly” and “Runaway (U&I),” which has earned Grammy nominations for “Best Dance Recording” and “best Remixed Recording” via the Kaskade remix. They’ve performed at world-wide events such as Ultra, EDC, Coachella, Tomorrowland, Electric Zoo, Creamfields and more.
While their 2014 debut album, The Pharmacy, received a lot of praise, they are receiving fire reviews on their latest album, The Aviary, which came together in a constant touring climate. Fans and music critics everywhere are raving that the album is “mesmerizing,” “Smooth with sweet vocals perfectly blend for a performance that will have you showing off your best two-step,” and “catchy.” The key to their artistry’s evolution occurred while embracing change. Karlsson points to an epiphany he had while visiting an actual aviary in Hong Kong that helped inspire the new album’s namesake.
The album is now available via Big Beat Records, and is partnered with a U.S. tour. Stops include Los Angeles, Chicago, Austin and more. Galantis’ latest track, “Girls On Boys” featuring Rozes, which debuted at a YouTube live stream in New York City, is also featured on the album.
To celebrate release week, Galantis teamed up with Postmates for a sold out show in San Francisco, which marks the first time Postmates has ever teamed up with an artist for a live performance. The group also celebrated their official album release party at Marquee in New York City.

Grammy-nominated DJ/producer, Steve Aoki, is getting ready to launch his upcoming album, Kolony, on July 21. As he performs around the world, the king of caking has been teasing fans with sneak peeks with tracks from his new project.
Aoki recently make a stop in Miami at club Story on June 30 and he had the crowd going with tracks from his upcoming album such as “Without You,” and his recently released single, “LIT,” with Yellow Claw featuring Gucci Mane and T-Pain. The chorus for “LIT” features T-Pain invoking Queen’s “We Are The Champions” and Gucci Mane rounds it out with a verse.
Story, which is located in South Beach, was packed from the front to the back with fans jumping and singing along to the lyrics of Aoki’s tracks such as “Just Hold On” featuring Louis Tomlinson and “Turbulence.”
It wouldn’t be a Steve Aoki party without a lot of cake! The DJ smacked six lucky fans in the face with a large sheet of vanilla cake while his popular track, “Cake Face” played.
Aoki released his first single “Without U” with DVBBS featuring 2 Chainz from his upcoming album. Another track called “Night Call” captured the audience’s attention with rap’s hottest trio Migos featuring Lil Yachty, which is also featured on Kolony. The album is an amalgamation of party-cranking tracks that stretch across the boundaries between EDM and rap music, landing on something in between and adding supplemental flavor.
This project marks Aoki’s first full turn into rap music, with nearly 10 years of hip-hop collaborations, which he describes as “bridging the gap” between genres.
