More on Galantis:
Galantis is the collaborative production duo of Christian Karlsson (aka Bloodshy, one-third of Miike Snow) and Linus Eklöw (aka Style of Eye). Together, the duo has set a new standard for songwriting in dance music. Their debut album, Pharmacy (Big Beat/Atlantic Records) reached No. 1 on the Billboard Dance album chart on the strength of hit singles "Peanut Butter Jelly" and "Runaway (U & I)," the latter of which is RIAA certified gold in 7 countries and earned GRAMMY nominations for "Best Dance Recording" and "Best Remixed Recording" via theKaskade remix. More recently, the platinum-selling track "No Money" became their biggest song to date – garnering 600 million streams globally, 288 million YouTube views, and reaching the Top 10 on iTunes in 43 countries! The story of Galantis started in 2009. Working as Bloodshy, Karlsson's songwriting collaborations included Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Katy Perry and Britney Spears (whose "Toxic" earned a GRAMMY award for Best Dance Recording). After reaching out to Eklöw (who produced Icona Pop's hit single "I Love It" as Style of Eye) to remix Miike Snow's "Animal," the two continued to collaborate until ultimately Galantis was born. Together, they have performed at world-renowned events such as Ultra Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival, Coachella, Tomorrowland, Electric Zoo, and Creamfields.
