London producers Kye Gibbon and Matt Robson-Scott have banded together to form a new electronic project, Gorgon City, which sees them fuse together elements of house, D&B and garage to create their distinctive pop sound.
The duo were originally individual artists in their own right, known as Foamo and RackNRuin, before they signed to Black Butter Records (Rudimental, Joel Compass, Kidnap Kid) as Gorgon City. 2012 saw them release their debut EP 'The Crypt', which was soon followed up by their 'Real' EP featuring Manchester born singer Yasmin on the title single. The track gave them their first real taste of success as it entered into the UK Singles Chart and even made the top 10 in the Indie Chart. Selling more than 47,000 copies in the UK, 'Real' was landed with the 'Record Of The Week' title from Radio 1; a feat that was soon to be repeated with third single 'Intentions' featuring Clean Bandit.
