Biography

Garage/house duo Gorgon City were formed when two North London-based producers -- Foamo, aka Kye Gibbon, and Rack N Ruin, aka Matt Robson-Scott -- began to collaborate in early 2012. Fruits of their initial recording sessions were issued as the Crypt EP that February on the Black Butter label, which had already seen singles released under Robson-Scott's solo production moniker, as well as by the future multi-platinum-selling quartet Rudimental. Gibbon and Robson-Scott's break came exactly one year later when February 2013 saw the release of their Real EP. The bass-heavy title track, written and performed in collaboration with established British songwriter and DJ Yasmin Shahmir, became a minor U.K. hit single. That summer, with help from the innovative string-fueled house act Clean Bandit, the duo issued "Intentions," and by the end of the year, they had toured the U.S. for a second time, and supported Rudimental on their Australian dates. Gorgon City's burgeoning success, both on record and live, was consolidated with their January 2014 U.K. Top Five hit "Ready for Your Love," which featured vocals from MNEK. The following month, "There Is No Other Time" -- a disco-inspired cut they had produced for the neon pop outfit Klaxons -- was given an online stream, but it was eclipsed by the duo's own "Here for You" (featuring Laura Welsh), which peaked at number seven. Sirens, the duo's first album, was released that October and went to number ten in the U.K. Two further singles, "Unmissable" (featuring Zak Abel) and "Go All Night" (featuring Jennifer Hudson), just missed the pop Top Ten, but like the album's first two singles, they nearly topped the U.K. dance chart. As the dust settled, Gorgon City worked on their second album while juggling DJ gigs and live performances. Additionally, they contributed a DJ set and two new productions to the Defected label's All Gone Pete Tong & Gorgon City Miami 2015. The first fruits from 2016's Kingdom LP were a pair of Top 40 U.K. dance hits, "Saving My Life" with RØMANS, and "All Four Walls" featuring Vaults. ~ James Wilkinson
