Both respected and renowned for their individual producing pursuits, Gorgon City serves to fuse the deeper, sexier sounds that have excited the two producers for years but remained untouched. Releasing on Black Butter Records, their polished, powerful and party-minded sound has already caught the ears of tastemakers across the globe.
You can thank their strict childhood diet of jungle, house, grime, hip-hop and garage. You can thank the many messy sessions they’ve spent DJing on the White Isle. You can thank the sonic chemistry between the pair in the studio. Either way, this exciting new project from Gorgon City is the sum of their many influences, inspirations and ideas; and right now they’ve only just scratched the surface.
Matt & Kye have capitalized on their successes of 2013 with their smash new single ‘Ready For You Love. Featuring the vocal talents of rising star MNEK, RFYL has been played practically non-stop since its announcement; Supported by Radio 1, I Xtra and added to the Kiss FM playlist 8 weeks upfront of release, the single is set to help stamp Gorgon City’s mark well and truly all over 2014.
Now on the A list at Radio 1 and 1Xtra of last week, the dance-soul duo recently performed the new single in the live lounge for the BBC 1Xtra Hot 10 for 2014 series. They were also been included in Channel 4’s ‘Launched at Red Bull’s Studios’ which sees them tipped by Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac as future stars for the coming year.
Looking into this year, Gorgon City’s debut album is well underway for a summer release. Collaborations for the record include Kiesza, Bipolar Sunshine, Jess Glynne, Josh Record, George Maple, Vicktor Taiwo and Jacob Banks among notable others.
