Life Of Dillon is a self termed “acoustic house” trio from the UK that consists of David Keiffer, Joe Griffith, and Rob Griffith.  The group describes themselves as a group that makes “acoustic-laced, dance-driven pop that captures the free spirit of a globe-traveling drifter.”  The trio takes their name from a surfing Nepalese wanderer named Dillon who the trio encountered while visiting Brazil, the Griffith brother’s birthplace.

This trip to Brazil inspired the trio’s first musical recordings which they started once they came back home to London.  The trio released their debut single “Overload”, which fused not only elements of folk and house but also some pop as well.  The single was released in early 2015 through Disruptor, a division of the major label Epic.  The trio released their first EP, “Prologue”, on May 19, 2015.

This group has only just begun to release their music but based on the tracks on “Prologue” they seem like they are going to have a very bright future ahead of them.  Check out some of their biggest hits so far below and see why this “acoustic house” trio will soon be the next big thing in electro-pop/house music.

Gorgon City

Gorgon City, an electronic duo that consists of two North London-based producers, Kye “Foamo” Gibbon and Matt “RackNRuin” Robson-Scott began to collaborate and make hit songs in 2012.

The duo, best known for their 2013 single “Real” peaked at number 44 on the UK Singles Chart.  The group’s newest album release, “Sirens,” was released in 2014 and currently features two other very popular hits “Ready For Your Love” featuring MNEK and “Go All Night” featuring Jennifer Hudson.  “Ready For Your Love” reached number 4 on the UK Singles Chart.

The duos first collaboration session resulted in the creation of “The Crypt EP” featuring many unique artists such as Navigator, Rubi Dan, and Janai.  The EP was released on February 27, 2012.  A year later, on February 17, 2013, they collaborated with singer-songwriter Yasmin for the lead track of the “Real EP.”  Later that summer, with help from their collaboration with Clean Bandit, the duo released their next single “Intentions” and by the end of the year, the duo had toured the United States for the second time and helped support Rudimentary on their Australian dates.

With growing success and fame all around, the group continued to explore their sound.  The newest album “Sirens” has been their most successful album so far with three of their singles peaking within the UK Top 100 Charts.  This duo looks to just keep on pushing forward and I believe that they will soon become a household name within the electronic music scene.  Be sure to check out some of the duo’s biggest hits below and if you like what you hear, go out and pick up “Sirens” which is in stores now.
