Just 12 days after Beatport released Galantis’ self-titled EP, the Swedish duo headed towards sunny Indio, California to make their debut live performance at Coachella. Just a blink of an eye ago, Miike Snows’ Christian Karlsson and Linus Eklow (Style of Eye) shared a vision and formed Galantis this past November. Since the birth of the mystical seafox creature, we have been watching Galantis’ quick rise to fame with supporters like Kaskade, Pete Tong, Diplo, and Steve Angello to name a few.
Having both been veterans of the industry, it was no surprise that Galantis executed a perfect live set from Coachella’s Gobi Tent stage. Starting off with their smash hit Smile, Galantis met a massive crowd response that is so ecstatic you can’t help but cheer along in bubbling excitement. The crowds hands were up in the air as Galantis pleased its crowd with Help, Friend (Hard Times), and The Heart That I’m Hearing off of their EP. They even dropped a trap remix of You 36 minutes into their set. Galantis also showed support for Fatboy Slim, Deorro, Showtek, and Miike Snow during their 50 minute set they lovingly dubbed “Seafoxchella”. The live recording of Seafoxchella is out now, which you can enjoy below!
