From Kanye To Rita Ora, Sigma Talk An “Insane” 18 Months
MTV – Early last year, underground DnB duo Sigma burst into the mainstream consciousness with their cheeky ‘Bound 2’-sampling ‘Nobody To Love’. Two No.1s, multiple festival appearances and a couple of BRIT Awards nominations later, this week they release their debut full length album Life.
Speaking to Cameron, one half of the ‘Changing’ producing pair, he told us they’re just so excited to have it out there that chart positions really don’t matter that much to them:”I think all of us were concerned about the way the whole music industry is shaping up in terms of if it’s an album industry anymore, ‘cause I think unless you’re a big name like Bieber, Adele, One Direction who’ve got huge fan bases and stuff, there’s always that kind of concern that it might not connect as well as you would like. But at the end of the day we always wanted to do an album – we’re not really that concerned about chart positions and stuff, for us it’s just about having a bulk of work out there that we’re really proud of.”
The past year has seen Joe and Cam embark on a headline tour, multiple festival slots (including Glastonbury) and a performance on the BBC Music Awards – so what can die-hard Sigma followers, who’ve been with them from the very start expect of the LP?
“There’s a few tracks on there which we catered for the clubs and although we’re writing tunes for radio at bit more now and a bit more commercial stuff…we still like to write music that when we do play club gigs we start our sets with [them] and you know stuff like that – so there’s a definitely a few tracks on there that should hopefully keep the heads happy.”
