Gorgon City (DJ Set)
Bradley Exum MPHD
The story of Gorgon City is a perfect microcosm of the story of how 21st century dance music coming in from the cold. Kye Gibbon and Matt Robson-Scott are two young men who each separately jumped in to clubland’s deepest and choppiest waters (at a time when halfway-decent club culture was as fragmented as it’s been the last two decades and entering a period of extreme marginalization) and learned to swim the hard way. Since then they’ve become skilled navigators of its currents, observed as streams converged and split again, and more by accident than design were perfectly prepared to ride its current waves of mainstream popularity.
