Spanish bass duo Boxinlion have just the track for all the weekend warriors out there who are gearing up for their next debaucherous marathon; their newest release “City Don’t Sleep” is an appropriately-titled anthem that will keep the party going Friday night until the wee hours of Monday morning. With smooth basslines and instrumental melodies that build to a funky drop, “City Don’t Sleep” is equal amounts melodic and heavy-hitting. It’s a sound that Boxinlion has carefully crafted throughout their career, and one that’s proven incredibly popular amongst audiences – as evidenced by the duo’s massive streaming popularity on their YouTube (115.2M), Spotify (8.79M), and Soundcloud (7.98M) channels. “City Don’t Sleep” is out on Panda Funk, the Los Angeles based record label and cultural expedition whose roster also includes Deorro, Michael Sparks, FESTIVILLAINZ, A Boy & A Girl and more promising avante-garde artists.
Panda Funk‘s slogan is “more than a record label, it’s a movement,” and this collective of forward-thinking artists has certainly embodied that motto by igniting dance floors around the globe with their party-friendly music. Their influences range from house, techno, electro and bass music, making for a contemporary collection of sounds that can’t be fit into just one genre. Boxinlion exemplifies their mantra with their “hard melodic” sound; while the words “hard” and “melodic” seem oxymoronic when used together to describe music, Boxinlion have found a way to make their own genre of irresistible music not only work, but thrive. The LA-based duo from Spain have been making waves in the scene with a string of successful official remixes, such as their version of Major Lazer‘s “Powerful” and Charlie Puth and Selena Gomez‘s “We Don’t Talk Anymore,” both of which have garnered millions of streams, and original tunes like their highly successful “Black and White,” which achieved 10 million. Their success has led them around the globe to some of the best festivals and events, such as SXSW in Austin, Hexagon Taiwan, Daydream Mexico, Sonar Festival, Bora Bora Ibiza and more. “City Don’t Sleep” is the latest dose of new music Boxinlion has in store this year as they continue to build their brand and reputation as masters of dynamic dancefloor production.
