Kye Gibbon and Matt Robson-Scott, together known as Gorgon City, unveil new remix of “Cosmic Kiss” by Pax
The critically acclaimed production pair not only took the buzzing house and techno UK duo under their wing via repeat releases on their REALM imprint but went a step further when they joined forces for their propulsive belter “Alive” during the final months of 2020. A little over a month later, PAX returned the favor by taking the hinges off Gorgon City’s “Trapdoor” through a sneaky reinterpretation that added a few new tricks to the harmonic club construction. Coming full circle now, the boys are tipping the balance back over with the weight of their take on “Cosmic Kiss.”
Orbiting around the poignant string motifs and woeful vocal work, a sleek and upbeat rhythm adds colorful contrast to anguished lyrics about a love that seemingly fell from the stars. Bold basslines are punctuated by perfectly executed percussive hits, warbling flourishes, and heavenly pads, all of which allows Gorgon City to expertly navigate through a constellation of sorrow, euphoria, and a contagious danceability that effectively wipes the slate clean. When all is said and done, you’ll walk away realizing some kisses are worth telling.
Gorgon City are still riding high from the release of their third studio album, ‘Olympia,’ a club-oriented collection of tracks that have been making the rounds, including standout cuts like the euphoric jam “You’ve Done Enough” with DRAMA, the captivating Sofi Tukker-assisted “House Arrest,” and the smooth driving “Dreams” alongside Jem Cooke. In celebration of the album, they are gearing up to embark on a UK / US headlining album tour with stops at London Printworks, Manchester Albert Hall, Echostage (Washington) and more.
