The duo’s contagious dance hit gets a beefed-up rework from the producer and Deep Root label head
UK dance duo Gorgon City return with another new remix of their house banger ‘Voodoo’ courtesy of New York-based producer and label head Francis Mercier, out on 28th April.
Gorgon City’s original, which has already reached almost three million streams on Spotify, is an iconic house banger centered around sumptuous vocal melodies over rolling bass. Following Matt Guy’s recent rave rework, Francis Mercier’s remix ups the ante, beefing up the track’s heavy-hitting groove with cascading arpeggios, throbbing bass and a huge synth breakdown that amps up its addictive lead vocal.
Fresh off the back of fan favorite singles ‘Sidewindah’ and ‘Remember’, and with one and a half billion catalogue streams to their name, Gorgon City’s latest gem ‘Voodoo’ proves its enduring success with another explosive new reinterpretation.
Having established themselves as one of the most in-demand acts in the industry, UK electronic duo Gorgon Cityhave enjoyed stellar success in recent years thanks to their unique blend of bass-driven house music and addictive vocals. With 10 BRIT-certified singles including 1X Platinum and 2x Gold, and over one and a half billioncollective streams in their repertoire, the duo have proven their music is equally fitting for both open air arenas and underground raves. The proof lies in their activity over the past year: sold-out shows at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, LA’s The Shrine, a 16-week Ibiza Amnesia residency, a sold-out Printworks show, and the release of smash single ‘Sidewindah’ featuring celebrated MC Flirta-D, which shot to number 1 on the official Beatport charts as well as picking up over 100 spins on the Radio 1 playlist.
Now with a full focus on 2023, the UK dance powerhouses look ahead to an already massive live schedule for the year. With the duo recently announcing a second year of their Amnesia residency in Ibiza, their return to the iconic Red Rocks in Denver, plus festival slots at Tomorrowland, Creamfields and Lollapalooza, 2023 is set to be Gorgon’s biggest year yet for live shows worldwide.
