MIXMAG MIX OF THE WEEK
Gorgon City are emblematic of what's going on in a specific area of modern house music right now. Of what's going on in the swirl of dancefloors at clubs like Space, Ibiza, and XOYO, London, where feverish young ravers are going fucking crazy for taught, thundering, mesmeric 4/4 undercut by swathes of bass and fragmented melody.
You'll know that kind of sound by now, as it's been dominating 2013. Tracks like Midland's 'Trace' (surely a contender for Tune Of The Year), Dusky's 'Mr Man' and Youan's 'Nightwalker' are very of the moment; polished, sculpted, club-ready weapons that come at you with an overwhelming wallop and are devastating during peak-time. Those riddims are all contained within Gorgon City's Mix Of The Week, a properly exhilarating collage of what's currently making clubs go into meltdown.
You'll know the duo as Foamo and RackNRuin, young UK producer's who have charted various waves of underground, bass-heavy dance music over the past several years. When they formed Gorgon City just over a year ago, they fell into new school house slipstream with ease, releasing 'Real' featuring Yasmin, which became something of an anthem, and then they made an impression on Mixmag HQ with a highly assured session in The Lab.
As their profile continues to rise and they hit festivals across the summer, it seems like a good time to get a mix from them. And we're glad we did, because this one rocks it. Perfect for getting vibes ramped up high. Enjoy.
