Galantis, Sweden’s sensational electronic music artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Rebel Toronto!

Galantis was formed in Stockholm in 2012 and is a duo of DJs Christian Karlsson and Linus Eklöw. Their musical style can be best described as a blend of electro house (a form of house music characterized by a prominent bassline and/or kick drum and a tempo between 125 and 135 beats per minute), progressive house (a subgenre of house music developed in the United Kingdom as a natural progression of American and European house music of the late 1980s), dance pop (a fusion of electronic dance music and pop music, with influences of disco, post disco, new wave, synthpop, electropop, and house), and big room house (a subgenre of electro house, often incorporating drops, minimalist percussion, regular beats, sub-bass layered kicks, simple melodies, and synth driven breakdowns). Their breakthrough hit was the 2014 single, Runaway (U and I). It was a top 10 hit in the UK, New Zealand, Belgium, Austria, the Netherlands, and it’s been certified double Platinum in the US and Norway, Platinum in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Gold in Belgium. They’ve had a stellar career with 1 studio album, 4 extended plays, 10 singles, and they’ve remixed tracks by Florence and The Machine, Peter Bjorn and John, and Ed Sheeran.

Don’t miss your chance to see these artists add a unique touch to electronic dance music!
