Mark Ralph has hinted at a new collaboration with Gorgon City.

“Been working hard all day with @GorgonCity and guess what? It’s time for refreshing Nandos in Kensal Rise!” the UK record producer tweeted.

Ralph recently co-produced and co-wrote “I’m in Control” for AlunaGeorge along with Sam Romans and group members Aluna Francis and George Reid. The track is now available for download via Island Records.

His other credits include Lion Babe’s “Where Do We Go” [Polydor], Foxes’ “Wicked Love” [Epic], Blonde’s “Feel Good” [Parlophone], Clean Bandit’s “Extraordinary” [Atlantic], and Years & Years’ “Shine” [Interscope].

Meanwhile, Gorgon City are expected to release their sophomore studio collection – featuring the Sam Romans-assisted “Saving My Life” – later this year through Black Butter Records and Virgin EMI Records.

The British garage duo – consisting of Kye “Foamo” Gibbon and Matthew “RackNRuin” Robson-Scott – released their debut album “Sirens” in 2014 and it peaked to number ten on the UK Albums Chart.

That collection also delivered guest appearances from MNEK (“Ready for Your Love”), Anne-Marie (“Try Me Out”), Zak Abel (“Unmissable”), Katy B (“Lover Like You”), Tish Hyman (“5 Am”), and Jennifer Hudson (“Go All Night”).
