I Wanna Run Away

Before our site was hacked by some uber-wiener, I posted a couple of Galantis tracks that did not receive as much attention as I had thought they would. This came as a surprise to me as Galantis is composed of Christian Karlsson of Miike Snow (also one half of Bloodshy & Avant who have produced for the likes of Madonna, Katy Perry and Britney Spears to name a few) and Linus Eklöw who is responsible for the Icona Pop smash "I Love It" (He co-wrote and produced it). This duo of super-Swedes, I believed, would be featured in multiple set lists and on countless individuals playlists; however, I did not hear as much of them as I had predicted. With Galantis' newest single, Runaway (U & I), I hope that's about to change.

In late October Galantis offered DJs and producers alike to remix their most recent jam. Despite the fact that most of the remixes are terrible, I'm hoping this helps puts Galantis on more people's radar. Fortunately for us there were one or two remixes that were worth noting and I've included my favourite rendition. The Long Beach City Kids [LBCK] rework is wonderfully funky and evokes the spirit of a summertime dance party. If only summer were closer...
