We spent the afternoon with Gorgon City and Zak Abel for a special performance of ‘Unmissable’.
What better way to spend our Tuesday afternoon than allowing dance duo, Gorgon City to envelope us with their audible delights.
The boys recently announced plans for their eagerly awaited debut album ‘Sirens’ which came alongside the announcement of their new single – ‘Unmissable’ ft. Zak Abel – which they kindly performed for us down at London’ s Joint Studio this week.
With a deft history of music making behind them individually as Foamo & RackNRuin, once Kye and Matt joined forces as Gorgon City things quickly began to snowball at a barely comprehensible rate. Their experiments with vocalists showed that they were as quick and proficient with real song structures as they were with beat-making, and had a knack of bringing out the best in collaborators. They quickly got the backing of the mighty Black Butter Records just as that label’s explosion into the mainstream, spearheaded by Rudimental, began in earnest. Further key features on the album include Maverick Sabre, Katy B, Erik Hassle and Jenifer Hudson. ‘Unmissable’ folows on from previous singles ‘Ready For your Love’ and ‘Here For You’.
Check out Gorgon City live at London’s Forum on November 15th.
