Two men, one mission: Gorgon City strut with a salubrious yet sordid sound. Polished, powerful and party-minded, it’s already caught the ears of tastemakers as disparate as; Annie Mac, Diplo, Eats Everything and Mistajam.
GORGON CITY WON BREAKTHROUGH ACT 2013 SUPPORTED BY EDDY TEMPLE MORRIS
Heavy hip-swinging rhythms meet butt-shaking bass, their sweet, sassy metropolitan mayhem celebrates the very best aspects of the mid-tempo melting pot that makes girls wriggle and boys giggle from San Antonio to San Francisco.
Inspired by the endless groove possibilities when house, garage and bass music go toe-to-toe, Gorgon City’s distinctive sound is a logical development of the duo’s individual work as RackNRuin and Foamo. Both respected and renowned for their electrifying bottom-end workouts, it’s a platform for the North London producers to fuse the deeper, sexier sounds they’ve been excited by for years but not yet had the opportunity to explore.
You can thank their strict diet of jungle, house, grime, hip-hop and garage while growing up. You can thank the many messy sessions they’ve spent DJing on the White Isle. You can thank the fluidity the pair vibe with when together in the studio. Either way, this exciting new project is the sum of their many influences, inspirations and ideas. And right now they’ve only just scratched the surface.
Currently taking up residence on Black Butter Records / Virgin EMI – the same label who gave us chart-smashing vibe maestros Rudimental – their unique funk fusion hints at club carnage but is executed with sleek, sonic sophistication.
They’ve already been given righteous hype by BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra and Rinse FM, with summer smash singles ‘Real’ ft. Yasmin and ‘Intentions’ ft. Clean Bandit achieving ‘Record Of The Week’ on Radio 1 from Nick Grimshaw & Mistajam and Sarah Cox & Sarah-Jane Crawford respectively, with ‘Real’ going on to sell over 42,000 copies in the UK to date. The exceeding success announced the duo of Matt and Kye as one of the most exciting and hotly tipped new acts in the ever-flourishing landscape of British club savvy pop.
