Gorgon City pres. Kingdom | Carrusel
On the 25th of February the stars from the English electronic music duo Gorgon City are coming back to Sofia! The people guilty of this brilliant booking are club Carrusel. The Londoners are going to present their second album Kingdom with a special extended DJ set!
Gorgon City consists of two young DJs and producers from North London - Kye "Foamo" Gibbon and Matt "RackNRuin" Robson-Scott. The pair has been active under the name Gorgon City from 2012, but has exploded on the global scene with a series of mega-hits, starting with the incredibly successful collaboration with MNEK "Ready for Your Love". After that come in quick succession "Unmissable", "Go All Night" and the "has-been-played-so-much-it's-getting-annoying" brilliant summer hit "Imagination". With the latter release as a single, Gorgon City are at the top of the world in the house scene, having already released their first album for one of the biggest global labels Virgin EMI. Their productions have a light and pleasant uptempo sound with deep beats and the obvious influence of classic deep house in their music.
But even though Kye and Matt have made it to the top and their songs are being played on every radio station not less than ten times a day, they don't fall into the trap of the full-on commercialization that we've seen a lot of artists who have made it to mainstream recognition fall in. The duo succeeds in retaining their taste for a "clubbier" sound and regularly put out releases and remixes which couldn't ever be heard on a mainstream station, but can easily be found in the sets of DJs like Hot Since 82. The Londoners have a nose for how a club DJ set should be made - not with a series of badly mixed three-minute long "greatest hits" of the artist, but with a careful and quality selection of other producers' tracks and their own productions and remixes, with a clear concept and a real relationship with the public. The duo, or to be more exact, Matt, proved this last summer, when they were invited to play one of the best gigs of the season - HippieLandia. As we wrote in the review, which is only in Bulgarian, sadly, Gorgon City made their debut in Bulgaria with a magnificent set which satisfied even the more capricious of fans in the crowd. And on Saturday, they're playing in a club setting and it's going to be an extended set. We're expecting a night of extreme quality.
The event is part of the Kingdom Tour with which the duo present their forthcoming album Kingdom. It's expected that the duo will be focused on their new music during the extended set, mixing it up with the best and newest on the global house scene.
Tickets are available for 30 leva ≈ 15 euro. Entrance without a ticket will be 40 leva ≈ 20 euro. You can buy your tickets from Ticketportal or from Memento on Rakovska st. or directly from club Carrusel. The Bulgarian support will be from the club's resident Zimone.
See you there!
