When Gorgon City burst onto the scene in 2013 with the hit 'Real' in collaboration with Yasmin not much was known about the duo. We chatted to the pair to find out a little more about them and get some style advice.
Consisting of two North London producers Kye "Foamo" Gibbon and Matt "RackNRuin" Robson-Scott, Gorgon City was formed in 2012 when the pair first linked up on the 'Cryt EP' featuring Navigator, Rubi Dan, and Janai. Their most prominent single to date was 'Ready For Your Love' in 2014 which peaked at number 4 in the UK charts.
Gearing themselves up for the 3 sets they are playing at this years Glastonbury this weekend, we wanted to find out not just about the men behind the decks but the clothes that dress those men. Have a read below to see what they have to say.
Can you tell us a bit about what you do and how you got into it?
We tour the world DJing and produce electronic music. We both got into it through UK underground dance music in our early teens.
What’s your favourite thing about being producers and DJs?
The fact we get to play our music that we love making to thousands of people every month. And constantly meet new people and cultures from all over the world.
What does your average day look like?
During Ibiza season we spend a lot of time travelling during the week. When we're in London, we start work in the studio around 11am and finish at 7. Then when Friday comes we get back on the road again.
What do you think is an absolute necessity for any guy’s wardrobe?
Black T-shirts, white T-shirts and black jeans. Also Nike Air Max of course, generally dark colours because our shoes get ruined in raves and festivals.
Do you have any routines that you live by?
On tour, showering before the show is essential to wake you up after a disco nap. Drinking lots of water before bed as well!
What style rule is essential for men to know?
Don't wear T-shirts that are too tight.
How would you guys describe your personal style?
Casual but when we perform as a live band we try to put effort in and generally wear monochrome stuff as a group.
Where do you get your style influence from?
Sometimes our friends help us style our outfits and we also use clothes from previous shoots in our live performance outfits.
What’s a go-to outfit when you’re playing live?
Monochrome! Black or white T-Shirts with a cool styling or design and black jeans...
So there you have it! If you want to look fresh in the dance this summer the key look to go for is a minimal, monochrome look. Plain white Tees (but not to tight) and dark button up shirts are a must, and don't forget the trainers so you can dance the night away with ease. To shop this look hit up the link below.
