Now Was Once The Future
Hear the new track “Our Love is on the Line.”
Soundtrack Mini-Album Available January 11th on GaryGo.tv!
CINEMA (Skrillex remix) is one of the greatest works of art ever made. “
2011 was the year that put Gary Go on dance music’s radar. The quirky and introspective pop artist was suddenly thrust to the forefront of the scene upon collaborating with mega-producer and hit maker Benny Benassi, writing and performing the chart-topping dance club anthem “Cinema.” After enjoying a GRAMMY-nominated remix from Skrillex and being front and center in Benassi’s video for “Close to Me”, Gary Go toured the globe as the face and voice of dance music. But that was last year. Now that 2012 is upon us, Gary is stepping into the spotlight on his own with his new album“Now Was Once The Future.”
Listen to the new track “Our Love is on the Line.” (Download HERE)
“Now Was Once The Future” gets released on January 11th and further showcases Gary’s talents as a songwriter, vocalist and producer. The new mini-concept album tells the story of the aftermath of a breakup, chronicling the moment when someone you love leaves you. His first single, a new interpretation of “Cinema”, transforms the dance hall anthem into a spaced out electronic ballad. In conjunction with the announcement of the NWOTFrelease date, Gary is releasing a new single “Our Love is on the Line.” Gary’s spirited and soulful vocals take center stage on the funk and soul-influenced track. It is a pop gem that is as catchy as it is riveting.
NWOTF features a stellar group of musicians including drummer Deantoni Parks(Meshell N’Degeocello / Mars Volta), violinist Davide Rossi (Coldplay / Goldfrapp),Memphis Horns (Elvis Presley / Al Green) and mixer Ken Thomas (Sigur Ros / M83 / Moby). The album was produced by Gary Go at his own The Whipping Club studios and features artwork by world-traveling graphic designer Kaonashi.

It’s been an interesting year for Gary Go. Primarily known for his delicately introspective and slightly quirky songwriting, the pop crooner was catapulted into the dance charts this year thanks to his involvement (as both songwriter and vocalist) on “Cinema”, a major club hit from mega-producer Benny Bennassi‘s debut album. The song has gained additional chart mileage with a remix by dubstep sensation Skrillex.
After so much success in the hands of other world-class producers, Gary is ready to unveil his own version of “Cinema” (available HERE), which transforms the club hit into a spacious down-tempo ballad. The track features the luscious vocals of Carina Round(Early Winters / Puscifer) and is the first song from his upcoming soundtrack mini-albumNow Was Once The Future, due out in early 2012.
Now Was Once The Future chronicles the end of a relationship and coming to terms with that loss. NWOTF features a stellar group of musicians including drummer Deantoni Parks (Meshell N’Degeocello / Mars Volta), violinist Davide Rossi (Coldplay / Goldfrapp), and Memphis Horns (Elvis Presley / Al Green) and mixer Ken Thomas (Sigur Ros / M83 / Moby).
Gary was asked to write songs for the Grammy-winning Benassi after the hit-maker remixed “Wonderful” from Gary’s debut album. Since Benassi’s release earlier this year, “Cinema” has topped dance charts in the UK, reached #1 on the Billboard Dance Airplay Chart and received Platinum status in Australia where Gary Go will be joining Benny Benassi onstage during the Stereosonic Music Festival later this month. The success of the track has also brought Gary to venues in the US, playing such iconic electronic music showcases as New York City’s Electric Zoo and Chicago’s North Coast Festival.

Download MP3 “Eyes Like Pearls”
With What Were You Hoping For?, Van Hunt kicks out the jams with a spare but dizzyingly vibrant meld of day-glo psychedelic soul with glammed-up riffs and the acerbic energy of punk. The album sees the Grammy-winning musician/songwriter/producer turning up the volume on his genre-smashing songcraft and the results are altogether gripping. From the breakneck “Watching You Go Crazy is Driving Me Insane” and “A Time Machine is My New Girlfriend” to the metallic k.o. of the album’s first single,”Eyes Like Pearls,” Hunt unleashes a sound that reverberates with caustic wit, passion, and the thrilling excitement of an artist operating at the peak of his powers. Careening with exhilarating intensity and frenetic, inventive musicality, What Were You Hoping For? is Van Hunt’s most daring and provocative work to date.
Van’s tour kicked off on September 19th in New York City and continues throughout the country through October. Tour dates are below.
