Rising duo GALAKTIQ blend alternative pop with an urban sound to form their new single ‘Anna Mae’.
With a catchy chorus and infectious beat, ‘Anna Mae’ is impossible to get out of your head.
Watch the music video for ‘Anna Mae’ here:
GALAKTIQ began their journey in Houston where they were born and raised forming their brotherly bond. After both graduating from University Of Texas San Antonio with business majors, GALAKTIQ was formed.
To escape from the normality of society, GALAKTIQ aim to create a unique futuristic sound that can connect and inspire societies all across the world. Their style, which they call Fuji-pop, comes from their Arabic background fused with pop and urban sounds. Their crossover influences ranging from Nigeria, Middle East and America, along with their fashionable approach suggests the duo are going to take the industry by storm.
After releasing alternative pop track ‘Vibin’’ GALAKTIQ caught the attention of many, leading them to support the likes of Akon, Pitbull, Lady Gaga and One Direction.
Produced by Alawn Music, signed with Universal Music France, ‘Anna Mae’ escapes the norm. It’s like nothing you’ve heard before.
The song, produced by Grammy award-winner, Kuk Harrell, is an up-tempo, energetic dance track. Harrell, who has been pivotal in Rihanna’s career, and has also worked with Justin Bieber and Beyoncé, believes that Desmond John’s first release has all the makings of an international hit.
A singer, songwriter and musician, Desmond John was born in Germany to a South African mother and British father. He spent his formative years in Frankfurt and Johannesburg, but calls Cape Town his home and has recently also spent time in the UK and Atlanta, USA. An avid footballer, as a young boy Desmond John dreamed of achieving fame on the field. However, having both a sporty and a musical bent, from the age of thirteen he began expressing himself through music.
While experimenting with a friend at a Johannesburg studio, he was overheard by a visiting comedian from the United States who – impressed by Desmond John’s sound - encouraged him to come to Atlanta. Here, after being introduced to various Grammy Award-winning producers and musicians, he began working with industry leaders such as Kuk Harrell, Kendrick Dean, DJ Toomp, Li’l Ronnie, ‘Mama’ Jan Smith (America’s premier vocal coach), and others, to further develop his musical abilities.
Drawing his inspiration from legends such as Michael Jackson, Bruno Mars, Babyface, Justin Timberlake and Drake among others, Desmond John has developed his own compelling sound – part pop, part R&B, with richly layered vocals.
As a global millennial whose worldview embraces all cultures and creeds, his music has appeal that goes beyond age groups or geographic boundaries. In his first single, Untradable, set to be released in the UK at the beginning of November, he combines his love for pop music and dance-ready vibes with a catchy, melodic hook – a pulsating preview of what the “next” trend in sound will be.
Commenting on the choice of song as his first release, Desmond John said: “From the minute I heard the song in Kuk’s studio, I knew it was the one I wanted to do. We both felt we were on to something good with ‘Untradable’ – it’s just a really great song. I’m excited about releasing in the UK, as I have strong British roots and am eager to start my musical journey from here. Please join me on the ride,” he says with a smile.
