“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.”
“Fiercely danceable astral-gazing electro with the dials cranked”.
THE SKINNY // Beacons festival review
“The duo’s mix of 16-bit synths and offbeat rhythms is an instant party trigger in the Noisey tent, with a partisan local crowd buoying them as they bounce their way through a journey of manipulated transmissions and veering hooks – each in turn spiking the mass in front into vigorous, hip-shaking action.”
OUR FAVOURITE PLACES // Tramlines festival preview
“Channeling New York’s late ‘80s “freak disco” (Was Not Was, Liquid Liquid, Arthur Russell) and Detroit’s Acid House scenes, Galaxians produce a maximum output from minimal set-up.”
PICCADILLY RECORDS // Manchester
“Leeds two piece Galaxians follow up their boogie bomb on Rotating Souls with ‘Personal Disco Component’, another EP of electronic funk brilliance on America’s Dither Down.”
“Rotating Souls return with this f-f-f-fresh four tracker from Leeds two piece Galaxians. Their heritage may be more Burley than Brooklyn, but you’d never have guessed from the killer tunes and peachy production on this bumpin Boogie 12″.”
DITHER DOWN RECORDS // New York
“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, Horse Meat Disco, Discodeine, and The Juan Maclean.
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.”
