""The spirit of disco is alive and well in Yorkshire. A two-piece consisting of Matt Woodward (drums) and Jed Skinner (synths), the house-influenced duo tear up every show they play, regardless of who they're billed with. A room full of indie kids, a room full of disco lovers, a room full of punks - they all fall hard for the Galaxians party." - NME
When Leeds duo Galaxians formed in 2012, their mission was clear, to bring back BEAT, and at a breakneck pace, including releases on Rotating Souls (ATLANTA) and Leeds's own Stargaze, plus stages shared with the likes of Tom Tom Club, Golden Teacher, Zombie Zombie, and Ultramagnetic MCs, Galaxians are here to bring back visceral funk.
With their latest release on Brooklyn's Dither Down Records, Galaxians have found the perfect home for a duo inspired by NYC boogie labels like West End and Sam. Giving them the perfect opportunity to showcase the sounds that have made them such a hit with festival crowds.
It's their inherent love of NYC's hard attack, that makes the bounce of Ducket$z through the slippery glide of Skydive all the more visceral and exciting. Say hello to your new favorite Gang of Two, Galaxians". DITHER DOWN
