Summer is here and the season of collaborations is upon us. UK house producers, Duke Dumont and Gorgon City have just teamed up for a track together called, “Real Life,” out on Astralwerks. The track is full of summer love with both artists’ uplifting vibes colliding into a hot and sensational jam, featuring vocals by Naations.
Gorgon City talked with Dancing Astronaut about their new single:
“When we were making the track, we had summer in the back of our minds the whole time. We really thought the uplifting piano vibes in the song is kinda like a throwback to a ’90s beat revival, and it felt like that sort of track hasn’t been around for awhile. Also, the lyrics felt very contemporary and poignant to this social media world that we’re living in where we’re figuring out what is real life as well as what is loving someone in real life.”
Duke Dumont and Gorgon City have actually been friends for a while according to Dancing Astronaut:
“We’ve been friends with Duke Dumont for quite a few years. We’ve gotten to know each other throughout the scene, even prior to Gorgon City when we were doing our solo stuff. We’ve always been a really big fan of him, and thought it would be really cool to do something special this summer. He came back with some cool ideas and we finished it pretty quickly; it’s quite organic and really natural.”
We can’t wait to dance until the sun comes out, while listening to blissful tracks like “Real Life.”
