Two men, one mission: London’s Gorgon City strut into Electric Gardens with their salubrious yet sordid sound.
The UK-based duo of Gibbon and Matt Robson-Scott, who came up as DJs in the dank London basement world before moving into producion, now have fans in tastemakers as disparate as Diplo, DJ T and Terry Farley. Their polished, powerful and party-minded sound – a mix of heavy hip-swinging rhythms meets butt-shaking bass – gets people making shapes all over the world. The boys have achieved startling success since the release of their debut album, Sirens – from a run of chart hits and star collaborations in the UK, to a huge international touring presence, that’s seen them perform everywhere from Glastobury to Coachella to more recently alongside UK heroes Rudimental in NYC’s Central Park.
The North London pair have helped shape the trajectory of deep house with their thoughtful, yet infectious productions. From club-ready work like Ready For Your Love to more emotionally-driven ballads such as Here For You, to their huge new soulful 90s disco-house collab with Duke Dumont, Real Life – the pair’s musical range is admirable. Gorgon City bring one of the most refreshing sounds in the game to Electric Gardens 2018.
