An overseas deep house duo consisting of music producers Foamo, aka Kye Gibbon- and Rack N Ruin, aka Matt Robson-Scott, Gorgon City burst on the dance music scene two years ago with the release of their romping Real’ EP. The electric title track became a moderate hit in the U.K,. but after gaining a huge live show following as well as a hit with follow-up single, “Intentions,” Gorgon City truly out themselves on the dance music map.
The destructive duo followed up success last year with their first fill length album, Sirens, as well as an accompanying remix album, in which both sets proved to be a deep house buffet of beats topped with an A-List roster of vocalists, including MNEK, Katy B, Erik Hassle, and one Ms. Jennifer Hudson, who owns it as one of the recent best deep house tracks to ever grace headphones-the vivacious and uplifting, “Go All Night.”
Tomorrow night, the overseas beat masters will be taking the stage at Union Transfer for an evening that will is guaranteed to be packed with a live music punch that only these groovy gentlemen are known to deliver. Philly Mixtape had the esteemed chance to break a few music tea mugs with Gorgon City before that they take over Union Transfer tomorrow night, and the duo spilled about what their Philly fans can expect from their anticipated show, what the future of dance music will hold, and just what it was like to be in the oh, so fabulous presence of Ms. Hudson.
Step onto the Gorgon City deep house dance floor below.
PM-Kicking our music tea off, what was it like to work with the lovely Jennifer Hudson on both the song and city nightlife wrapped video for your blockbuster single, “Go All Night?”
GC-She is incredible. Her voice is so powerful and great to work with in the studio. It was all quite crazy for us, to work with someone so famous and talented. We’ll never forget the day in Brooklyn when we recreated a 90s house club in NYC!
PM-What will you be gentlemen be treating your Philly fans to once what you take the stage tomorrow night?
GC-We’re bringing our biggest live show yet on this tour. We have our full live band along with our 2 singers, Lulu & Josh. It’s going to be big!
PM-Will you guys be able to check out Philly while you’re here?
GC-Not sure yet.It all depends when we arrive! I grew up skating and always dreamed of skating Love Park, so would be cool to check out the skate scene…
PM-Are they are any artists out there you’re just dying to work with?
GC- We’d love to work with George Ezra, and also Rae Strummurd.
PM-Where do you guys see deep house going maybe, ten, twenty years from now?
GC–House music will never go away! It is global and its’ tempo is naturally infectious – whether the current sound will continue won’t affect the future of house music in general.
PM-You guys ready for that new Adele album to drop?
GC-Yes! She is a British treasure and we can’t wait to have her back.
PM-One last music tea spill, what would you say to a young deep house music producer who was just starting out in the crazy business?
GC-Prepare for a lot of mad people and a lot of difficult things to deal with. It’s a lot of fun but can all be a bit too much sometimes! But still do it because it’s all worthwhile!
