Sigma & Diztortion ft. Jacob Banks - Redemption
With Sigma’s fourth hit record and third iTunes No.1 single, ‘Glitterball’ (feat. Ella Henderson), still in the Official Chart Company and iTunes Top 10 singles charts, Cam and Joe have announced details of their new single, ‘Redemption’, a collaboration with Diztortion that features UK star, Jacob Banks.
Unveiled across UK national radio earlier this evening, ‘Redemption’ is the opening song from Sigma’s current live show, and a collaboration with UK-based Dutch producer/artist, Diztortion, a frequent visitor to the UK Top 20 singles chart and best known for his work with Stylo G, Lethal Bizzle, Major Lazer, Stormzy, Tinie Tempah, and Wiley. Banks recently released his second EP, ‘The Paradox’, which received support from Pharrell, P Diddy, and Annie Mac; he’s currently working with artists including Chase & Status, Bondax, Wretch 32, and more.
Sigma’s forthcoming 10 date UK and Ireland live tour begins in Manchester on 22 October, the duo will then hit London, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Dublin, Bristol, Sheffield, Portsmouth, Oxford, and Norwich. Cam and Joe sold out their debut live tour in April, which saw shows in London, Manchester, Birmingham, and Brighton. Since then, the boys have smashed Glastonbury, Hideout, EDC, T In The Park, Pukkelpop, V Festival, and more, with Creamfields, SW4, and others to come, plus dates across the Ibiza season at Together at Amnesia, and Ibiza Rocks. The pair performed live at this year’s BAFTAs, following December’s performances at the BBC Music Awards, and the Christmas Day edition of Top Of The Pops.
‘Redemption’ follows the duo’s worldwide hits ‘Glitterball’ (feat. Ella Henderson), ‘Changing’ (feat. Paloma Faith), ’Higher’ (feat. Labrinth) – recently unveiled as the anthem for this year’s Sky Sports Super Sunday- and ‘Nobody To Love’, their first No.1 single that gained them two BRITs nominations.
Sigma were the only group in 2014 to have back-to-back No.1 singles in the form of ‘Nobody To Love’ and ‘Changing’ (featuring Paloma Faith), with both shifting over 100,000 copies in their first week. Sigma have now sold over 2 million singles worldwide in just over a year, gone Platinum twice in the UK (‘NTL’ and ‘Changing’) and Gold for ‘Changing’ in Germany, and Benelux, and Platinum in Australia and New Zealand (‘NTL’).
Outside of their own releases, Sigma have shored up their reputation as an in demand remix duo, with mixes for the likes of Kiesza (‘Hideaway’), Route 94 (‘My Love’), Clean Bandit (‘Extraordinary’), DJ Fresh (‘Dibby Dibby Sound’) and DJ Zinc (‘Show Me’). Sigma met while balancing raving and studying, working in record shops and promoting events to top up their student loans. Early releases with Hospital Records, Viper, Bingo and DJ Fresh’s Breakbeat Kaos, as well as their own Life Recordings, quickly marked them out as producers to watch, while remixes for Eric Prydz, Ellie Goulding, Stylo G and Sway began to take them to a wider audience.
