SONG OF THE DAY: Gorgon City ft Zak Abel – Unmissable

Mixing Nu-House and soul, Gorgon City release another solid track from their forthcoming ‘Sirens’ album. The organ intro sets the classic vibe for Zak Abel to deliver the emotional lyrics. Last heard on Wookiee’s “Higher,” Zak joins the current generation of UK male soul singers (Sam Smith, John Newman, ETML) with a deep voice that has a bit of Example’s toughness to punctuate the vibe. The backing gospel singers elevate the song as well, leading to the hooky chorus which is truly “unmissable.” As the follow up to the top 10 hits “Ready For Your Love” and “Here For You,” this song solidifies the Gorgon City sound. All three songs showcase manage the producer, the singer, and the excellent songwriting as equal parts – something which is rare in the dance and pop music worlds.
