AlunaGeorge, The duo whom you may have heard blasting on radio stations in 2014 with DJ snake on the track “You Know You Like It,” will be coming to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, April 16. As they make their way to perform in Malaysia, here’s few things to get to know about AlunaGeorge.
AlunaGeorge was formed in 2009. During the time, Aluna Francis had her music uploaded on then-popular website MySpace. From there people started recognizing her music, which later drew attention to producer George Reid, who then reached out and offered to do a remix together. It’s was from there that the two decided fully work together and become the ultimate dream team.
The duos unique blend of electronic/synth pop, left-field R&B, and UK garage, lead them to collaborate together with a remarkable list of artists including the late Avicii, Jack Ü (Diplo and Skrillex), DJ Snake, Kaytranada, Flume, Bryson Tiller, Disclosure, Peking Duk, Baauer, and many more.
Their track “You Know You Like It” which was released in 2013 was later remixed by the well-known DJ snake in 2014, giving them a massive boost in their career as their music video garnered over 128 million views on YouTube alone. They were also the first band to break into the US Billboard 100.
Their most recent project, “Champagne Eyes”, which debuted in October 2018 was another impressive second EP which includes collaborations with Baaeur. “Superior Emotion,” Its lead single, features Cautious Clay alongside the track’s sultry trap drums. While AlunaGeorge’s R&B slow jam features Bryson tiller with a track called “Cold Blooded Creatures”. According to Billboard their EP, “benefits from R&B, pop and dance elements, creating a cool, fearless vibe.” This is fitting because the duo’s musical style has been described as “advanced minimalistic polyrhythmic beats” infused with “bashment, experimental hip-hop, ‘90s R&B and house.” Their biggest inspiration also come from Flying Lotus, Hudson Mohawke, Destiny’s Child, Mariah Carey, James Taylor, and Aaliyah.
AlunaGeorge is a force to be reckon with, and fortunately the duo will be performing in Kyo, Kuala Lumpur on the 16th of April.
