Gorgon City // Used To Be Real [Feat. Yasmin]
It’s been a while since we’ve heard the gorgeous voice of Yasmin. It’s also been a while since we’ve heard from me, but I’m not gorgeous so we’ll get round to that some other time.
Gorgon City is the collaborative project between Foamo and Rack n Ruin, and it seems like they’re gelling together pretty well if their set on Radio 1’s Diplo & Friends show is anything to go by.
“Used To Be Real” is a track they premiered on the aforementioned show. I’m not sure if it’s going to be a single or not, but if either Foamo or Rack n Ruin end up reading this, please release it. Yasmin sounds like one of those cool mid-90s dance vocalists on the bass heavy, throwback tune. Everything from the production to the melody is irresistible, plus it’s nice to hear Yasmin again.
Mikill Pane // Paper Princess [Feat. Yasmin]
Hackney rapper Mikill Pane has been building up some attention after featuring on Ed Sheeran’s “Little Lady” and releasing two EPs onto Itunes in the past year. He’s now back with collaborations EP “You Guessed It”, which includes features from Ed Sheeran, Example and young, fresh talent Katie Price.
The song that immediately caught my attention was “Paper Princess”, which features none other than the fantastically superamazing Yasmin. The singer’s voice provids a soft chorus against Mikill’s heavy verses, which deal with becoming so obsessed with a woman that he’s never met, that he photoshops photos of him with her. Of course that’s completely unrelatable, as I can’t imagine anyone who could ever become totally obsessed with Yasmin, but it’s a very good song nontheless.
I haven’t heard the rest of the EP yet, but if this dark midtempo’s anything to go buy then it should be pretty impressive to say the least. It’s available for free off SBTV, so click here and hit the download button for temporary happiness.
