To coincide with the launch of the mini-documentary, Amazon Music is also releasing a brand-new Summer Session from Galantis, the latest entry in Amazon Music’s artist-curated summer party playlists series.

As part of the Summer Session, Amazon Music is also debuting a brand-new, exclusive Amazon Original remix of “Faith” from producer Misha K, which can be heard here.
“I wanted to make a playlist that included some new favorites, as well as classic tunes. Music reminds us that we are not alone and we are a part of something much bigger,” said Eklöw and Karlsson. “I think now more than ever, we need positivity and a sense of community.”
The Amazon Music Summer Sessions have featured a scorching line-up of dance DJs and producers – including Martin Garrix, Love Regenerator, Jayda G, Tiësto, Kygo, and Disclosure. Each artist has curated their own party playlist, available exclusively to Amazon Music Unlimited and Amazon Music HD customers globally, released on a weekly basis along with an exclusive Amazon Original track.

Setting a new standard for songwriting in dance music, Galantis is a collaborative project between Christian Karlsson (aka Bloodshy, one-third of Miike Snow) and Linus Eklöw (aka Style of Eye). Their debut album Pharmacy reached No. 1 on the Billboard Dance album chart on the strength of RIAA gold certified single “Peanut Butter Jelly” and platinum certified smash “Runaway (U & I)” – the latter of which earned GRAMMY nominations for “Best Dance Recording” and “Best Remixed Recording” – while their 2017 sophomore album The Aviary (featuring platinum certified single “No Money”) saw a top 10 debut in 23 countries. Most recently, their third album Church features their chart-topping single “Faith” with country music icon Dolly Parton featuring Dutch singer-songwriter Mr. Probz, which saw a #1 debut on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Chart before quickly reaching #1 on the Dance/Mix Show Airplay Chart where it remained for 5 weeks. The duo has received over 3 billion cumulative worldwide streams, and over 1 billion video views to date.
The story of Galantis started back in 2009. Working as Bloodshy, Karlsson’s songwriting collaborations have included Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Katy Perry and Britney Spears (whose “Toxic” earned a GRAMMY for “Best Dance Recording”). After reaching out to Eklöw (who produced Icona Pop’s hit single “I Love It” as Style of Eye) to remix Miike Snow’s “Animal,” the two continued to collaborate until ultimately Galantis was born. Following their blockbuster performance debut at 2014’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, the duo quickly rose to become one of dance music’s most dynamic and in-demand live performers.
