When superstars like Calvin Harris and Galantis get behind an artist, you know you should pay attention. Dutch duo East & Young blend dance and indie pop with exceptional songwriting to make music that sounds as good on the dancefloor as it does on the radio. After industry heavyweights Bart B Moore and Calvin Harris both signed their tracks to their respective labels, a chance meeting with Galantis secured their fate. East & Young’s remixes of “Runaway,” “Smile,” and “Gold Dust” led to a tour and the collaboration “Make Me Feel,” which ended up in the Netflix movie XOXO. Even with all this success, they manage to keep level heads and focus their energy and do incredible charity work for organizations like 10,000 Hours.
