Sofi Tukker and Gorgon City team up on 'house arrest' track. Press play and enjoy the piece, just below.
The UK based duo of Kye Gibbon and Matt Robson-Scott are known for their addictive take on bass driven vocal house and have produced a string of chart hits and club classics. While developing his skills as a DJ and musician in college, Tucker played Gorgon City's music at house parties and recently, "House Arrest" has been a fan favorite from SOFI TUKKER's daily Facebook. Instagram, and Twitch live DJ sets. Anchored by a cavernous beat, the propulsive house track finds cosmic inspiration through warbling synths and Sophie's mellifluous vocals.
The track first came together last summer when Sophie broke her foot and had to be off her feet for two months. "We started this song on 'House Tuesday': a gathering of the homies every Tuesday to have fun and improvise house music," SOFI TUKKER shares of the song's genesis. "We originally didn't intend to make a song but we loved what we were doing so much that we recorded it. Eventually, we sent it to Gorgon City because we thought they were just what it needed to make it perfect."
"House Arrest" unexpectedly seemed to speak to the present moment and the group finished the music and lyrics while isolating at their home and began performing it during their sessions. Despite distance, the song has brought together two acts who've shared a long-time mutual admiration. "We couldn't be more excited to put this into the world," SOFI TUKKER says. "Just because we are under "house arrest" doesn't mean we can't go to the club in our minds."
