Since first emerging in 2014 with a remix of Jessie Ware’s song "You & I (Forever)", two EPs later, 2015’s “Shivers” and 2016’s “Yours”, both created during a period that saw him crafting hits for rising artists Dave (100Ms) and Ray BLK (Chill Out), the Reading-born producer-come-songwriter-come-DJ has returned in 2018 with a three-part ode to club music: Dusk, Dark, Dawn.
Having remixed and collaborated with some of the biggest and emerging artists including Dua Lipa, G-Eazy, Flume, Disclosure, London Grammar and Michael Kiwanuka, SG holds a dual love of singer-songwriters, while simultaneously getting his mind completely blown in clubs and festivals. From selling out clubs like Electric Brixton and Koko in London to festival stages at Coachella, Glastonbury, Primavera, Melt! Festival and more, SG Lewis’ sound has been described as, “imagine if Frank Ocean leaned harder into hip-hop and soultronica after Channel Orange,” (triple j).
On his new 3-part album’s first phase – Dusk – SG plays with 80’s synths, inviting warm-up house and disco, paving the way for heavier, shadowy sounds on Dark, before completing the trilogy with more emotive offerings on Dawn. Experience his latest sonic creations as SG Lewis makes his debut performance in New Zealand this July.
