Watch GORGON CITY:
Bursting out of London’s underground music scene with its thrilling world of pirate radio, crude DJ set ups, improvised studios, and bleeding edge beats come Rudimental (Piers Aggett, Kesi Dryden, Amir Amor and Leon Rolle): A pioneering melting-pot collective who have taken the British music scene by storm, championed for their uncompromising approach to music-making whilst avoiding rigid classification.
Taking a “traditional” songwriting approach as much as an electronic one in their music making, Rudimental mix live instrumentation (Hammond, Rhodes, horns, live bass etc) with digital programming.
About GORGON CITY:
Kye Gibbon and Matt Robson-Scott of Gorgon City are two young men who each separately jumped in to clubland’s deepest and choppiest waters and learned to swim the hard way. Each was obsessed not only with the sound but with the culture of jungle / d’n’b, the barely controlled madness and dark energy of the underground tracks and rave tapes that inspired them as teenagers.
As soon as Gorgon City began things snowballed at a barely comprehensible rate. Signed to Virgin EMI & the mighty Black Butter Records – who’d already released a couple of Matt’s RackNRuin tracks, including a very early Jessie Ware collaboration, the beginning of Gorgon City coincided with the label’s explosion into the mainstream, spearheaded by label mates Rudimental.
