The Making Of Sigma Live & ‘Higher’
Currently on tour in Australia and setting the Southern Hemisphere’s festival circuit alight with their new live show, Sigma have released a behind the scenes look at their live rehearsals and the making of their new single, ‘Higher’ (released 22 March on 3 Beat)
Sigma’s debut UK live tour in April includes shows in Manchester, Birmingham, Brighton and London. Support comes from Sinead Harnett, and Ms Dynamite. Tickets for all shows are selling fast. The live show will feature full production, lights and visuals, with Cameron and Joe on keyboards and pads, and joined on stage by special guest vocalists, MC, and a live drummer.
The live show also will hit festivals and events including Snowbombing, SW4, Pukkelpop, Ibiza Rocks, Sundown, Frequency, Fusion, Dreambeach, High Definition, and many more.
2014 was Sigma’s most successful year to date, capped with their first TV live performances at the BBC Music Awards and the Christmas Day edition of Top Of The Pops, plus their appearance at Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball and a co-headline slot at UKF’s New Year’s Eve event at Brixton Academy.
They 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 1.75 million singles worldwide in just 10 months,
Leeds University alumni – alongside Rusko – Sigma aka Cameron Edwards and Joe Lenzie 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.
