This Swedish duo made their Top 100 DJs poll debut in 2015, and skyrocketed from No.98 to No.39 in 2016 – a quantum leap that parallels the trajectory of their success in the charts. The delivery of smash hit ‘Runaway (U & I)’ on their debut album ‘Pharmacy’ in 2015 earned Galantis two Grammy noms (Best Dance Recording, and Best Remixed Recording by Kaskade), clinching platinum status across the globe and racking up over 400 million plays. By 2016 the two Swedes — Christian Karlsson (of Miike Snow) and Linus Eklöw (Style Of Eye) — were touring the world’s marquee venues and festivals, continuing to dominate radio airwaves with crossover dance-pop hits like ‘No Money’, their first single to debut on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

2017 saw fans welcoming the release of Galantis’ much-anticipated sophomore LP, ‘The Aviary’. The album was produced largely on the road, with the pair living out of their suitcases and composing on the fly, as opposed to their comfortable spot in a fully-equipped studio. The year has been good to them so far, with a triumphant return to the Coachella stage (their last romp in Indio was their debut in 2014) and a brand new live show being toured for an album in which they’ve finally found their own sound… clinching yet another a spot in the Top 100 is a cherry on top of Galantis’ growing list of achievements.
