Kaskade and Gorgon City prove a collaborative wonder on new single, ‘Go Slow’
Kaskade and Gorgon City give listeners a bassline to lust after on “Go Slow.” The collaboration seamlessly melds the mellifluous style characteristic of Kaskade’s prior house releases with Gorgon City’s equally well-established underground aesthetic, to result in a bassline-driven house production that reverberates from speakers with an unmistakable sense of sonic power. Kaskade and Gorgon City play with the texture of sound in “Go Slow.” The collaborators source the track’s vocals from featured singer, Roméo, whose buttery vocals provide a point of contrast to the tinny grit of the song’s defining bass elements.
The melody of “Go Slow” is an invitation to listeners: transcend wallflower status, and head instead to the dance floor. Trusted entities when it comes to the composition of melodies that galvanize listeners to move, Kaskade and Gorgon City jointly assert their statuses as house music mavens on “Go Slow.” Each release has a musical story of its own right, and “Go Slow” is no outlier. The single follows a Twitter user’s tweet suggesting that Kaskade and Gorgon City produce a track. The rest, as they say, is history.
