The story of Gorgon City is a perfect microcosm of the story of how 21st century dance music coming in from the cold. Kye Gibbon & Matt Robson-Scott are 2 young men who each separately jumped in to clubland’s deepest + choppiest waters (at a time when halfway-decent club culture was as fragmented as it’s been the last two decades & entering a period of extreme marginalisation) + learned to swim the hard way. Since then they’ve become skilled navigators of its currents, observed as streams converged & split again, & more by accident than design were perfectly prepared to ride its current waves of mainstream popularity.

Gorgon City’s debut album Sirens is being released on October 6th via Black Butter. The lead single, “Unmissable” featuring Zak Abel precedes it on September 29th. The video was directed by the much in demand young British – Swiss director Ben Strebel (Jaevon / Dornik / Phoenix) + tells the classic story of boy meets girl & the feelings you experience in that instant, unmissable moment of mutual attraction & how you must grab it with both hands.

In addition to this, Matt & Kye are incredibly excited to announce details of their mammoth 30 date live tour in support of their debut album this coming autumn. The fully live show – which will feature a whole host of guests who also feature on the record – takes them across the UK & Europe in November + December. 1st though, they kick off a 12 date DJ tour of N. America on October 9th in Miami which finishes up in LA on the 25th. The live show then starts up in Manchester on November 7th & takes them through London on the 15th for a show at The Forum & finishes up with a show in Paris on December 20th.

All Your Thoughtless Words

Merchandise “Enemy” I was not particularly interested in the earlier incarnation of Merchandise. I didn’t hear fully formed songs in their recordings, and I don’t think that being a band who plays a lot of DIY gigs is even remotely intriguing. But this new version of the band on 4AD has my attention, in part […]
