Kaskade and Gorgon City prove a collaborative wonder on new single, ‘Go Slow’

Kaskade and Gorgon City prove a collaborative wonder on new single, ‘Go Slow’1

Kaskade and Gorgon City give listeners a bassline to lust after on “Go Slow.” The collaboration seamlessly melds the mellifluous style characteristic of Kaskade’s prior house releases with Gorgon City’s equally well-established underground aesthetic, to result in a bassline-driven house production that reverberates from speakers with an unmistakable sense of sonic power. Kaskade and Gorgon City play with the texture of sound in “Go Slow.” The collaborators source the track’s vocals from featured singer, Roméo, whose buttery vocals provide a point of contrast to the tinny grit of the song’s defining bass elements.

The melody of “Go Slow” is an invitation to listeners: transcend wallflower status, and head instead to the dance floor. Trusted entities when it comes to the composition of melodies that galvanize listeners to move, Kaskade and Gorgon City jointly assert their statuses as house music mavens on “Go Slow.” Each release has a musical story of its own right, and “Go Slow” is no outlier. The single follows a Twitter user’s tweet suggesting that Kaskade and Gorgon City produce a track. The rest, as they say, is history.

Gorgon City release seductive music video for club-ready ‘Delicious’ track

Gorgon City release seductive music video for club-ready ‘Delicious’ trackGorgon City Delicious

Gorgon City released a music video alongside their new track, “Delicious,” off their Realm imprint in a partnership with Astralwerks. The track presents the duo’s familiar bass sound center stage, while house percussion elements flutter around sensual club vocals using sibilance to their advantage. The bassline plays both the main character in the verse and an amplified protagonist during the drop. In the video, a theme consistent with the title of the tack depicts a montage of fast-moving close-up shots acting more as a visualizer than a constructed narrative.

“Delicious” looks to rock the Miami Music Week clubs as the preceding track to the North London tag team’s weekend festivities, then again at Coachella a couple weeks later. 2019 has seen some deep releases from the house tandem, and with summer approaching, these first tastes might play a critical role in their coming sets.

Exclusive: Why Gorgon City, Green Velvet, and more believe Miami Music Week is one of the most important dance events of the yearMiami Music Week

Every year without fail, Miami Music Week draws some of the dance music’s strongest talent and most raucous crowds for its seven-day frenzy, this year notwithstanding. From Virtual Self‘s acclaimed Clubsystem set with support from Boys Noize to over 30 Diskolab hosted parties, including Green Velvet‘s curated La La Land series, showcases and special sets will run rampant from March 25-31. In addition to the omnipresent and immaculately curated live parties, the week also features the Winter Music Conference (WMC), which hosts industry-revered speakers and hot-button programming galore.

With a global array of DJ talent, producers, and multifarious talent from the music industry at large flocking to the city every year, the cultural significance of Miami Music Week simply can not be overstated. By reaching out to a spoonful of the week’s top performers, Dancing Astronaut was able to discover, from the artists themselves, why the event series is such an impactful celebration for electronic music patrons worldwide.

Tony of Above & Beyond:

What with Ultra, the conference, spring break, and all the shows around town it’s a unique chance to see anyone and everyone in the world of electronic dance music. It’s like the whole Ibiza season in a few days, a chance to escape the winter weather and dance in the sunshine, by the pool, on a boat or in a club. We’ve been doing our own shows in Miami for more than a decade now and they are always up there with the best of the year.”

“We’ve been going to Miami music week for years. I actually first went when I was 19! It’s a crazy place with countless parties. There’s people from all over the world in one place and that’s what makes it so special and important. We can’t wait for this year as we’re playing some amazing events.”

“WMC, a week when everyone from all over the world comes together in sunny Miami for some of the best parties of the year. You never know where you’re going to end up, clubs, rooftops, pool parties, boat parties, the list goes on. Aside from the party atmosphere, it’s a valuable opportunity to discuss some of the hot topics and issues in the industry. There are few events throughout the year where the music world gets together, so we should make the most of them. For us Europeans, it’s also a valuable time of year for us to connect with fans, promoters, other artists, labels and industry professionals who are based over the pond that we might not necessarily get to see as often.”

“MMW is an institution for me. I have rarely missed it since first coming around 15 years ago. Literally everybody in house music is there somewhere or another and for a week Miami turns into this magical playground where the whole city becomes one big festival in what’s already one of the coolest cities on the planet.”

“Although there are many electronic music conferences now, Miami is the original one for me and still relevant in that you will always discover a few electronic gems or maybe find some inspiration from a random set somewhere on South Beach. Ultra, of course, remains a great gateway for young new recruits to the electronic music scene especially with them investing so much into their Resistance brand of which I’m very fortunate to be a part of this year.”

“I think any event that brings together the world’s best DJs in one place at the same time, to connect with people on the dance-floor is a special moment, and Miami is one of those moments. However, Miami is the original showcase of our beloved dance music that’s rich in its heritage and legendary in its purpose. Miami Music Week is the time when we hear the music we’ll be dancing to all summer long.”

“MMW is one of the few times of the year that the music community comes together for a week of some of the best parties, networking, and just general good times. For me, as an artist it’s a chance to play at some super cool parties. This year I play Do Not Sit – always a good time. It’s also a chance to meet up with my friends from the industry who come to Miami from all around the world – there’s a good vibe in Miami that makes everyone a little wild.”

“Miami is still important because it’s not so important, so whoever is a hardcore fan or a lover of it will go. I meet so many people from around the world, and there is a combination of parties and acts you cannot see anywhere else. Miami is a party place, home to house music and house music artists, and so many parties and trends started there. I have been playing since around 2005, so it’s now a ritual for me, and very important to me personally. I’ve met and formed close friendships and partnerships over the years. I love it and I wouldn’t miss it for the world.”

2018 was a killer year for Gorgon City, as they released their first studio album since 2014 with Escape. The album—with star features like Duke Dumont and JP Cooper—was followed up by an “Escape Live Tour” that showed the London-based duo in a whole new light. To finish out the year, Matt and Kye returned with a two-hour edition of Kingdom Radio on London’s Rinse FM. Now, Gorgon City’s decided to capitalize on the momentum with their first track of 2019, “Lick Shot.”

Released on the duo’s very own REALM imprint, a platform utilized primarily for underground/club-geared tracks through Virgin EMI Records, “Lick Shot” is the perfect treat for long-time Gorgon City fans. The production fuses elements of UK-grime and melodic house sounds, with pleasant hook leads and some stimulating deep bass on the drop.

Gorgon City will hit a few club dates before an appearance at Coachella 2019 in April.
