04 / December / 2017
Highly acclaimed UK duo Gorgon City have unveiled their new 4-track EP, titled ‘Grooves On the Vinyl’on their REALM imprint, with early club support from the likes of Adam Beyer, Richy Ahmed, John Digweed & Claptone set for release on 1st December.

The REALM label, the platform for their more club focused tracks and underground sounds marks an exciting chapter in Gorgon City’s highly successful career so far, with the ‘Grooves on the Vinyl’ EP showcasing their diverse and dynamic production skills across the release.
Utilising hypnotic chords and a rumbling bassline on EP opener ‘Get Together’, the duo launch into a more rugged and minimalistic style on EP titled track ‘Grooves on the Vinyl.’ The production, which also receives a crackling remix from Paul Woolford (aka Special Request) sees the former Space resident use a ruff vocal interjection to break up his driven loop. Closing the EP with ‘Trouble’, Gorgon City lace the track with electronica synths and echoing vocals.
Having established themselves as one of the most in-demand acts in the industry, Gorgon City have enjoyed stellar success over the past 5-years thanks to their unique blend of bass-driven house music and addictive vocals. The British pair have developed a huge international presence and recently finished one of their biggest sold out UK & N.America KINGDOM tours (over 30,000 tickets). Shows aside, they set the bar high with their first REALM release ‘Primal Call’ hitting #1 in the BBC Radio 1 specialist chart after been named Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest record in the world’.
The ‘Grooves on the Vinyl’ EP is set for release on Friday 1st December.
