As 2014 begins to slow down, new sounds are hitting the airwaves and becoming the norm. One of those is Gorgon City, a duo that swept the summer’s festival lineups and is quickly becoming a household name. Hailing from London, Matt Robson-Scott (RackNRuin) and Kye Gibbon (Foamo) formed Gorgon City in 2012 and have been producing tracks together since, touring the UK and the US and sweeping up fans at large-scale festivals such as Electric Zoo, Holy Ship, HARD Summer, and the 2014 iTunes Festival. In the past two years, they’ve quickly developed a large following, partly due to their consistent work alongside Rudimental.
Gorgon City’s sound boasts classic house with a mix of mainstream pop sound, made evident by their recent collaborations with artists such as Jennifer Hudson, Yasmin, and Jessie Ware. Combining a typical house sound with Matt’s and Kye’s techno and bass background, Gorgon City creates an all-encompassing sound that can attract electronic fans of any generation. Their debut album, “Sirens,” is set to release on October 6, and includes singles “Here for You” and “Ready for Your Love,” both of which are currently topping the UK charts.
Seeing Gorgon City live is a treat — while their essential sound is house, they keep things beat-heavy and often throw a bit of their bass influences into a live set, as well as the occasional dancehall shout-out. It’s common to be surprised by a new sound cutting through, whether it’s a soft hip-hop sample or a deep house remix. With the new album approaching, Gorgon City is sure to be playing their newest tracks, but one can expect the “Sirens” preview to be interrupted by their personal favorites, including Hot Since 82, Clean Bandit, and Rudimental.
“Sirens” is available for pre-order on iTunes now.

 

 

Though an impressive roster of talent will be joining the duo on their tour, fans can expect to see Henry Krinkle join Gorgon City as the opening act for the Northeast dates. Krinkle’s style of bass music is decidedly futuristic, combining elements of dubstep and house while still maintaining a fresh, innovative feel. Formerly a taxi driver, Krinkle gained attention this summer thanks to his soon-to-be-classic track “Stay” – Justin Martin’s remix of said track is arguably one of the best of the year. Matt will also be popping in on the occasional tour date, delivering as RackNRuin to set the tone for the night.
