Too Damn Glam are proud to present one of Defected records latest signings. Hailing from Bristol the Gotsome due released ' MY BASSLINE' which quickly smashed the beatport charts and already had a string of remixes from some of house music's greatest mind. With huge response from Annie Mac,Pete Tong & Zane Lowe its no wonder they are show casing at TDG!
GOTSOME ( DEFECTED RECORDS)
GotSome, aka Alex Homes and Adam Gorsky, are a UK production duo set to imminently explode onto the house scene. Previously recording as two parts of Forget Me Not (who saw releases on imprints such as Hypercolour’s Losing Suki and Alfresco Disco Records), they are perhaps best known to date for the B.Traits-championed ‘Bassline’, soon to be released on the mighty Defected Records, along with remixes from Friend Within and Chocolate Puma.
The pair first met more than a decade ago on the Bristol clubbing scene, and they first collaborated when Adam enlisted Alex’s specialist skills to add some orchestral strings to a hip hop track. Since then they have been – creatively speaking – near inseparable. The pair have been writing and producing with one another alongside different combinations of friends and artists over the years, and are now primed to launch the next stage of their musical careers as a duo.
Like many teenagers, Adam’s first exposure to electronic music came through pirate radio and sneaking into raves in their native Bristol. Early influences included the then omnipresent Sasha and Digweed, d&b hero LTJ Bukem and local legend Roni Size. Alex meanwhile ignited his obsession with electronic music through the synths and sounds of pioneering acts like The Prodigy and Orbital, who he cites as being major influences on his musical outlook.
GotSome is the culmination of several years spent experimenting with different styles, sounds, genres and techniques. Both Alex and Adam are confident that justice will be done to the myriad influences that have shaped and honed this latest – and definitive – incarnation.
Historically a DJ and sound engineer respectively, Adam and Alex have an exceptionally balanced and creative relationship in the studio that can easily be heard in the music they produce. Whether it’s an original groove, sound or sample, or just in the way the track is mixed down, there’s something fundamentally unique about their sound, with an emphasis on keeping things fresh, rather than continuing down a well-trodden and predictable path.
‘Bassline’ may well become the defining record of their career to date, but it is by no means the only string to their creative bow. Two further EPs are due out later in the year (also on Defected), with the first release featuring heavyweight floor fillers ‘On Point’, and ‘Don't Want You Back’, and there are already plans for an album later down the line. “We want to get new singers and lyricists to perform with our music” say GotSome, “to take the same sort of concept as Basement Jaxx and The Chemical Brothers, but whereas they come from latin, funk, electro and classic house, we’ve taken that idea forward ten years and are exploring it again with the sounds we’ve been brought up on, like hip hop, drum and bass and break beat, but with house and garage still influencing the sounds.”
“We want to make music that we can put on a stage and people can party to” they continue, “but we want it to be accessible as well as progressive. We define success as making music that we love that is also popular; music that comes from our soul, but translates to all kinds of people around the world.”
The duo certainly aren't shy of their potential: “Anything else is a bonus. That said, a headlining slot at Glastonbury with an epic live AV show someday would also be good!"
At the rate that GotSome are currently going, it may not be too long before that particular dream becomes a reality.
