Galantis is a newly formed Swedish production duo that consists of Christian “Bloodshy” Karlsson (of Miike Snow fame) and Linus Eklow better known as Style of Eye. Their debut is a house anthem entitled “Smile” that dropped today on Big Beat Records. The track pops off with an infectious hook, a beat that propels the track forward and intertwining male and female vocals. The track has already seen support from dance music heavyweights such as Kaskade, Tiesto, Dada Life, Pete Tong and Diplo.
