Students' Union

Escape ft. Sigma (DJ Set)

Friday night at the SU can only mean one thing - Escape! Join us for the best house, chart and dance music around and party until 3am! This time, we're joined by world renowned DJs, Sigma, for Refreshers.

Sigma, like The Chainsmokers, Calvin Harris, and Disclosure, stand at that meeting point between dance music and pop, pioneers of a radio (and stadium) friendly sound that's seen the duo shift over four million singles, clock over 308 million YouTube views, and play stages from London’s Brixton Academy, Roundhouse, and Fabric, to Glastonbury (in front of 100,000 people), Reading Festival (where thousands danced outside of a packed Radio 1/NME arena), and further beyond with sold out shows across Australia and New Zealand, Amnesia in Ibiza, and EDC in America.

Their debut album, ‘Life’ (released in December 2015) included eight hit records (2x platinum, 1x gold, and 3x silver), and as things stand, has now sold over 300,000 copies. The past 18 months have seen them play numerous live TV performances (BAFTAs, X Factor, TOTP, BBC Music Awards) and featured on the front (and homepages) of the UK press (The Times, The Guardian, Buzzfeed).

Their biggest hit on 3Beat was ‘Nobody to Love’ - a rework of Kanye West's ‘Bound 2’. Again, Annie Mac was instrumental. She got behind the record immediately, championing it to the Breakfast and daytime shows at BBC Radio 1. The success of ‘Nobody To Love’ changed everything. Within weeks it went to No.1 in 15 countries, and has since become one of the biggest selling-singles of this decade so far, earning them two Brit Awards nominations, and over 215 million YouTube views.

Sigma’s next single, ‘Changing’ (ft. Paloma Faith), was another No. 1 in September 2014 (it was also Faith’s first chart topper). It was followed by ‘Higher’ (ft. Labrinth) in March 2015 when it reached No. 12, ‘Glitterball (ft. Ella Henderson) which peaked at No.4 in July and ‘Redemption’ (a collaboration with Diztortion ft. Jacob Banks on vocals). Singles with Rita Ora (‘Coming Home’), and Take That (‘Cry’) have ensured that Sigma have kept up their reputation for matching hits with some of the biggest names in the business. With the global success of ‘Find Me’ (ft. Birdy) taking them into 2017, the boys are currently locked in the studio working on their eagerly-awaited second album, and preparing to make this their biggest year to date.
