SOCIALLY-DISTANCED NIGHT TALES DJ SET CONFIRMED FOR 22nd OCTOBER
Following the release of his huge Robyn and Channel Tres collaborative single ‘Impact’, UK songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist SG Lewis today shares the track’s Soulwax remix out now via PMR/EMI Records.
Since its August release ‘Impact’, featuring mesmeric and euphoric vocal work from Robyn and Channel Tres’ trademark smooth delivery, has proved to be one of the hits of the summer following its premiere as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record on BBC Radio 1. Across the last month and change, the track has racked up heavy support from the station, so much so that it landed on the Radio 1 Playlist this week, while clocking over six million streams already. Its cultural impact was solidified recently with Shea Coulee and Detox creating their own video for the smash hit.
Alongside news of today’s remix, SG Lewis will be making his return to the live space as he performs a socially-distanced set at Night Tales on the 22nd October with tickets available from 22nd September.
‘Impact’ follows ‘Chemicals’ as the second single to be taken from SG Lewis’ yet-to-be-announced debut album, due soon. ‘Chemicals’ saw SG taking centre stage on vocals as well as production and was named ‘Tune Of The Week’ by both Clara Amfo and Nick Grimshaw as well as receiving support by Annie Mac on Radio 1, accumulating over 12 million streams since release. The two singles follow the three-chapter concept EP Dusk, Dark, Dawn, with collaborators including Clairo, T.E.E.D., AlunaGeorge and Ruel. The project serves as a tribute to club and youth culture and chronicles the trajectory of a night out through its different moods and genres, having now broken past 200 million streams. While Dusk (early 2018) blends disco, smooth electro and funk and Dark (late 2018) explores distinctly heavier yet still diverse sounds, Dawn (2019) is a sonic embodiment of those euphoric sunrise moments and the feeling of togetherness at the end of a night well spent.
2019 also saw SG Lewis sell out headline shows across the US, Asia, Australia and Europe as well as playing prime slots at Coachella and Glastonbury, cementing his status as not just one of London’s hottest new talents but also a formidable artist capable of making a splash on both sides of the Atlantic and beyond.
SG has recently collaborated with Aluna, Victoria Monet, Raye, Ray BLK, The Neptunes/N.E.R.D’s Chad Hugo, Gerd Janson, Conducta and more as well as producing ‘Hallucinate’ on Dua Lipa’s record-smashing album Future Nostalgia and Dave’s ‘100M’s’, proving his worth as one of the most respected and prolific musicians from the UK. SG’s ever-growing catalog both as a collaborator and with his solo tracks showcases his abilities as a producer capable of working beyond the limits of genre and style.
