House music heavyweights Gorgon City have recently released their latest single Burning featuring vocals from rising Brooklyn based singer EVAN GIIA. They continue to blaze a trail with a series of strong re-rubs including their own Terrace Dub and Ben Hemsley remix which are both out now.
They now add to the package inviting fellow DJ producer duo Snakehips to present their inimitable take on the release. Snakehips need little introduction, the London producers Oliver Lee and James Carter burst onto the scene with 2015’s “All My Friends” featuring Chance the Rapper and Tinashe, which went on to be certified platinum in several countries. They went on to amass hundreds of millions of streams and record sales. Since then they have worked with Zayn, Anderson Paak, and Joey Badass, continually evolving their sound and always remaining fresh and innovative.
Here Snakehips takes Gorgon City’s Burning and rework it in their own style, giving it a breezy pop dance feel. Still effectively retaining a house flavor, it features a smooth and funky electronic baseline, incorporating elements of R&B, floating vocals and a definite summer sounding vibe. Listen HERE.
Established in 1993 in New York City, Astralwerks was the brainchild of Caroline Records staffers who saw an opportunity for a label focused on the nascent electronic and ambient scene. Now based at the historic Capitol Records Tower in Hollywood, Astralwerks has emerged as a modern, artist-first label and the #1 market share leader for dance/electronic music in the U.S. Combining a scalable, independent and global-thinking ethos with the ability to tap into the resources of a major label has enabled Astralwerks to sign such artists as ILLENIUM, Jonas Blue, Alison Wonderland, EDEN, ZHU and Alesso. As a testament to its pioneering approach, Astralwerks has amassed 30 GRAMMY nominations, taken home six GRAMMY Awards and had historic releases from the likes of The Chemical Brothers, Swedish House Mafia, Halsey, Porter Robinson, Phoenix, Eric Prydz, Fatboy Slim and many others. The label has also released such massive singles as the 5x Platinum Happier by Marshmello + Bastille and FISHER’s Losing It.
