REVIEW: Gorgon City @ Concorde 2, 11/2/15

On February 11th, The Verse were lucky enough to catch Gorgon City live at Concorde 2. Being a fan of Gorgon City, I went along as had never seen them perform live before. Firstly, the atmosphere was electric all night. Gorgon City themselves were really good live, however it was definitely the audience that got the place going. Behind the band was an impressive light display which only added to the already decent atmosphere. The hour set definitely flew by far too fast.

Gorgon City were joined by singers Lulu James and Josh Barry, who took it in turns to sing tracks such as Lover like You and Go All Night, originally sung by Katy B and Jennifer Hudson. These chart topping tracks sent the crowd into a near hysteria, as every word was sung along to- many watchers climbed onto friends shoulders when Gorgon’s biggest hit Ready for Your Love was dropped towards the end of their performance.

The live sounds were created with a full synth bank and drum pads, with DJ Foamo appearing behind one set of drums. The live sound really worked for them and gave the songs which are usually over-played on the radio a newer, better quality. There wasn’t a moment where the audience were not dancing, and you could really tell that everyone up on stage was enjoying the party vibe just as much as the audience. They mainly focused on their only album, Sirens, which went down extremely well with the over excitable crowd. However, the glimpse into their newer material can only mean more success for this duo. An exciting summer with Gorgon City is definitely in the pipeline for their fans.
