UK & Chicago based duo of Kye Gibbon and Matt Robson Scott a.k.a Gorgon City, have become known for their addictive take on bass driven vocal and deep house. They have carved out a distinct and instantly recognizable sound after producing a string of chart hits and underground dance floor moments. With over 1.4 billion global streams to their name and over 9 million singles sold across their career, Gorgon City are hit makers, with each release reaffirming this status.
Working just as well in the underground as on national airwaves and streaming playlists, the new release “Burning” is everything you would expect from a Gorgon City production; full of emotion with a big anthemic feel, atmospheric synth tones, low rumbling horns and warm bass, alongside EVAN GIIA’s resonant and soulful vocals. Written in March of this year during turbulent global times, this new release signifies the beginning of a new chapter for the duo that will lead into 2021 and beyond.

Gorgon City continues their theme of working with US vocalists as they have on the recent releases, marrying UK production with outstanding US singers on the rise. EVAN GIIA, the duo’s labelmate on Astralwerks, adds her distinctive electronic pop crossover touch to the new track. GIIA’s latest in a series of singles “FOCUS” was hailed as “an inspired anthem with a feel-good message” by V Magazine. Wonderland said, “We defy you to listen to [‘SIDELINES’] … and not feel your heart tempo kick up a few notches.” The New Nine said, “EVAN GIIA is the new cool girl to keep on your radar…’Switch Off’ is upbeat, pulsing and sure to be on repeat on your playlists.” Earmilk observed, “EVAN GIIA is the gutsy, barnstorming pop singer making quite a splash with her unique sonic panache and kinetic live persona.”
With a discography packed full of outstanding releases, the past year has seen Gorgon City release a series of standout singles. The unmistakable track “House Arrest” with Sofi Tukker clocked up over 14 Million streams in 10 weeks, topped international radio playlists and hit the #1 spot on US Dance Radio. The duo also collaborated with house music royalty MK on “There For You” and continued their innovative trailblazing with “Nobody” featuring Chicago duo DRAMA, as well as releasing a string of dancefloor ready cuts via their club focused imprint REALM.
With a new video for “Burning” in the pipeline, exciting news announcements for the new year and a 2021 international tour planned, the future is burning bright for Gorgon City.
