Gallant

Gallant is a new rising R&B artist from out of the Los Angeles area who has begun to make quite an impression on both fans and critics within the R&B scene.  The sudden attention can mostly be lead to Gallant’s stunning cover of the Foo Fighter’s song “Learn To Fly” which sounds so vastly different from the original, that it could be called a reinterpretation.  With thunderous drums and soaring vocals, Gallant’s “Learn To Fly” is a beautiful, heartfelt ballad that stands on its own ground as basically a completely new song.  Gallant’s falsetto range is also fantastic throughout.

Gallant performed his first live shows in June 2015 at both Los Angeles and New York City and will continue to travel around in order to get his name out there.  He is truly a new artist on the rise that people should know about.  Below are some of his biggest singles so far.  Be sure to check them out and help spread the word on Gallant.

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.
