    The story of Gorgon City is a perfect microcosm of the story of how 21st century dance music coming in from the cold. Kye Gibbon and Matt Robson-Scott are two young men who each separately jumped in to clubland's deepest and choppiest waters and learned to swim the hard way. Since then they've become skilled navigators of its currents, observed as streams converged and split again, and more by accident than design were perfectly prepared to ride its current waves of mainstream popularity.

    • By MusicLounge
    Nelson-born brother-sister duo Broods (Caleb and Georgia Nott) are the most celebrated young band to emerge out of New Zealand in recent times. Announcing their arrival with glossy synth-pop ballads 'Bridges', 'Never Gonna Change' and their self-titled debut EP, through a tireless work ethic, commitment to excellence and unshakable senses of self, they've established themselves as an in-demand proposition globally. "Touring has made us realise how important it is to not just be yourself, but back yourself," Georgia says. "If you're not being true, you'll never stand out." Read More »

  • Ella Eyre

    “I’ve always wanted to hit people in the face with my music, rather than tickle them,” Ella Eyre says. Fierce and fearless at just 19, with a number 1 feature on Rudimental’s ‘Waiting All Night’ to her name, her new breed of soul is here. With an ear for the past and a foot in the future, led by a voice exploding with power and passion, brawling and bawling, Ella’s songs speak to us while we dance. Already tipped as the artist to watch by media across the board including the BBC Sound of 2014, MTV, Vevo, 1Xtra as well as the being in the top 3 of the BRITS Critics Choice, the voice of 2014 is sure to have a spectacular year.

  • Avid Dancer

    Jacob Dillan Summers has been many things. A sheltered fundamentalist Christian kid. A world champion drumline drummer. A marine. A lovesick transplant to icy Alaska. This is the story behind Avid Dancer - the nom de musique under which Summers is releasing Avid Dancer's debut EP I Want to See You Dance, out October 21st on Grand Jury. These songs are some of the most kaleidoscopic, distinctly individual - and above all, honest- pop music you'll hear all year. Read More »

    • By MusicLounge
    Taylor Swift is a seven-time GRAMMY winner, and the youngest recipient in history of the music industry’s highest honor, the GRAMMY Award for Album of the Year. She is the best-selling digital music artist of all time, and the only female artist in music history (and just the fourth artist ever) to twice have an album hit the 1 million first-week sales figure (2010’s Speak Now and 2012’s RED).

  • Ingrid Michaelson
    • By MusicLounge
    In the past two years, Ingrid Michaelson has vaulted from overachieving indie-pop sweetheart to a bona-fide pop star. Her last release, Human Again, debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard album chart (plus No.1 on iTunes). This achievement merely crowned the considerable success Ingrid had already earned with her previous compositions: beautiful, idiosyncratic songs that have been prominently featured in popular films, television and on regular rotation in commercials. Her DIY approach to making music was a slam-dunk. Now, it has evolved into a well-oiled machine, The New York Times even weighed in, declaring her songwriting “smart,” her tunes “irresistible” and her live show “seamless.” Read More »
