English producer star seed fires up the party at Pumpehuset
The house and disco pop talent SG Lewis, who has worked with, among others, Robyn, Dua Lipa, Jessie Ware and Mø, give a concert with the songs from her upcoming album “AudioLust & HigherLove” on 18 March 2023 in Pumpehuset.
Samuel George Lewis has spent a large part of his life in clubs. Perhaps that is why today he stands as one of England’s brightest new producers of house and disco pop, created to accompany sparkling lights and sweaty bodies. As a youth, he cultivated introverted innovators such as James Blake and Bon Iver, while also loving Timbaland and The Neptunes’ danceable fusion of hip-hop, r’n’b and electro. His interest in music earned him a job as a resident DJ at the Liverpool club Chibuku, where he absorbed the popular electronic dance genres of the time such as house, dubstep, techno and drum ‘n’ bass. However, Lewis also had ambitions to make music himself, and after remixing Jessie Ware he was signed by her label in 2014. Here, in the following year, he released three critically acclaimed EPs, while also remixing and producing for names such as Disclosure, Flume, Khalid and Dua Lipa.
In 2021, the debut album “Times” was released, which was reviewed positively in both The Guardian, NME and Pitchfork. Here he mixes slamming, hip-twisting house and disco with inspiration from 80s pop, funk and synth-glittering electropop, and the album also features contributions from names such as Robyn, Niles Rodgers, Lucky Daye and Channel Tres. Alongside his own music, SG Lewis has also written songs with several big names. He has, among other things, helped make Dua Lipa’s “Hallucinate”, two tracks on the Tove Lo album “Dirt Femme” (2022) and “Live to Survive” from Mø’s latest album.
On 23 January 2023, he will be ready with his second studio album, “AudioLust & HigherLove”, from which the single precursor “Call On Me” with Tove Lo exudes a disco party in the glow of the strobe lights. Less than two months later, on March 18, his Danish fans can experience the new tracks live in Pumpehuset. SG Lewis is known as an engrossing concert experience, where his catchy productions are supplemented with drums, percussion and synths by a live band of musicians – so the audience can start chalking their dancing shoes!
