Fresh from the success of their stunning recent single ‘Real’, Gorgon City have just announced their new offering ‘Intentions’ featuring Clean Bandit, with Nikki B on vocals. ‘Real’ outperformed expectations, achieving 'record of the week' from Nick Grimshaw on Radio 1 and selling over 30,000 copies in the UK.
The London duo follow on with an up-tempo rhythm that whispers fresh summer nights, with Nikki’s soulful vocals giving it that necessary weight to truly get down to on the hook. Clean Bandit’s trademark strings lend it a sharpness that’s balanced exquisitely by the heavy kick and characteristic booming bass-line of a Gorgon City production. On the B-side ‘Cycles’ is a pure back-to-the-club deep house track that marries a hypnotic bass-line and hazy vocal, with enough snap to keep Gorgon City fans hooked on the quality control.
Stepping up their game significantly since they gate-crashed the start of 2013 with their stripped-down, garage meets deep house sound, Gorgon City have been on remix duties for Basement Jaxx’s new single 'Back 2 The Wild' and Lulu James’ forthcoming offering ‘Falling’. To round it all off, they are off to the US for their first stateside mini-tour in early May, supporting Chris Malinchak in NYC, plus headline dates in Chicago & LA.
All this whilst Matt and Kye roll out gigs across the summer, with festival sets at Glastonbury, Bestival, Parklife, Hideout, Global Gathering, SW4 and Isle of White. They will also be taking up a residency in Ibiza at Space with BB Records at Carl Cox’s legendary Tuesday party, plus dates at Amnesia and Ibiza Rocks alongside; Eats Everything and Rudimental.
Clean Bandit meanwhile, have also been leaving their mark on 2013 with their breakthrough track ‘Mozart’s House’ getting extensive Radio 1 support and climbing to No.17 in the official UK charts. Their avant-garde, electro-orchestral sound was aching to be put to the test by Gorgon City’s heavy 2-step flavor following Gorgon’s official remixes for Clean Bandit’s ‘Nightingale’ on Black Butter Records in late 2012.
