Within the music of Galaxians – the trio of Jed Skinner, Emma Mason, and Matt Woodward - lies a powerfully hedonistic strain that does much to loop a thread through the party lineage of their hometown of Leeds. Coupled with the first impressions of what the pair loosely term their “pre-digital dance music”, you might not raise an eyebrow to find out that their cues are taken in-part from classic disco and house labels such as Sleeping Bag or Chicago’s TRAX, nor that their early EPs found homes across the Atlantic on the similarly-minded Dither Down in Brooklyn, and Atlanta’s Rotating Souls Records.

However, it’s the beating pulse of Northern England club life, married with the thriving independence of much of the region’s best venues and spaces that forces its way through in the band's live shows and recorded output. Galaxians' soulful, muscular sound resonates with a raw playfulness, and with the addition of Emma Mason in 2015 the band have forged a path to a sound steeped in the tradition of New York disco and boogie heavyweights such as Inner Life, Gwen Guthrie, and producer/writer Leroy Burgess.

In recent years the band's festival appearances at Beacons, Blue Dot, Beat-Herder, and Tramlines festivals have gathered significant praise for the bristling energy of their live performances. They have also played alongside Horse Meat Disco, Dam Funk, Tom Tom Club, Jessy Lanza, The Juan Maclean, Golden Teacher, Auntie Flo, Zombie Zombie, Discodeine, Ultramagnetic MCs, Ital, Happy Meals and more.
