08 Apr GotSome x Venice Beach_Do Not Friday Mix 014
GotSome ( Bristol / Defected, )
BIO: GotSome are the UK production duo that exploded onto the house and bass music scene in 2014. Out of the studio, Adam Gorsky places himself firmly behind the decks bringing with him 15+ years of experience in the world of DJing. Alex Holmes’ forte is in studio engineering, sonic manipulation and record refining, which defines the punchy edge on every GotSome track. They are perhaps best known for the B.Traits and Annie-Mac-championed ‘Bassline’, released on the mighty Defected Records alongside a huge package of remixes from house legend Kenny Dope, Friend Within, Chus + Ceballos and Chocolate Puma. The pair have now delivered a string of impressive official remixes for FCL, Basement Jaxx, Moko, Jus Now, Sure Thing and Junior Jack with more to come. GotSome began 2015 with a bang and entered with the weighty follow up single “Vibe Out”, featuring legend and godfather of grime, Wiley. This signals their first record on Chase & Status’ MTA Records. The pair 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.
Like many teenagers born early 1980’s, Adam’s exposure to electronic music came through pirate radio and sneaking into raves in Bristol. Early influences included local legends Roni Size, Krust and DJ Die, and later Basement Jaxx and Switch. Alex meanwhile ignited his obsession with electronic music through the synths and sounds of pioneering acts like The Prodigy, Orbital and Chemical Brothers, 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. ‘Bassline’ may well be the defining record of their career to date, but it is by no means the only string to their creative bow. Their first EP release features heavyweight floor fillers ‘On Point’, and ‘Don’t Want You Back’, and there are already plans for further releases on Defected and MTA, with an album later down the line.
