This is an archive of the band profile for Galaxians.
GALAXIANS is Jed Skinner and Matt Woodward.
Their debut vinyl release - a 12" split with fellow Leeds dance act Runners on new dance label Stargaze - sold out within two months of its October 2012 release, gaining praise from US dance labels Dither Down (NY) and Rotating Souls (Atlanta), and NY DJ Lloydski (Dither Down). Their first batch of songs - released as a self-titled mini-album on Bandcamp - has been selling steadily since it first appeared in late 2012.
Taking their cues from early 80s NY labels such as SAM, Are 'n' Bee, Sleeping Bag and post-disco producers such as Leroy Burgess and John Morales, Galaxians fuse classic Roland TR analog drum machine sounds with acoustic drums and synthesizers played live, always placing the soulful unpredictability of the human hand and heart at the forefront of their live shows. Since early 2012 they have been moving crowds consistently up and down the UK with their raw, soulful, exciting mix of proto-house, post-disco and boogiefunk..
