Each week, New Music Friday sweeps through with torrential force, showering streaming platforms with immeasurable amounts of new tunes. Just like Dancing Astronaut rounds up 25 of the biggest songs of the week for the Hot 25 Spotify playlist each New Music Friday, Lunar Lunes serves as a landing pad for SoundCloud users who want a whole new dose of tunes to kick off the work week.
Mija takes to Hot Haus Recs for her latest release, the groovy “Sweat It Out.” SG Lewis puts his own spin on a familiar tune, and Alexander Lewis closes his new EP with “Left U on Red.” Rinzen, Marbs, and Evan Casey have teamed up for “Helix,” and Borgore taps Abella Danger for “911.” Cassian gives his own take on Just Kiddin’s “There for You,” and Modestep reveal “Blood” on Disciple. 13 puts an eerie spin on Zeds Dead and Delta Heavy’s “Lift You Up,” and Cristoph and Jem Cooke unveil a clip of “Slowly Burning 2019.” Godlands, JEANIE, and Jelacee hold nothing back on “No Stress,” and Phantoms tap Kate Morgan for “5AM.” Lee Burridge and Lost Desert deliver “Melt,” and Party Favor and EZI strip down their collaboration, “Be Ok,” for an acoustic rendition.
Over the last few years, British producer SG Lewis has cranked out a wide range of tracks with pop singers somewhere below the mainstream. When I’ve checked in on his work with acts like Dornik and Col3trane, I’ve always been impressed with his sleek and artful take on electronic R&B. Today … More »
SG Lewishas released the second piece of his compelling three-part project. This middle section comes in the form of a five-track EP entitled Dark, following the release of Dusk earlier this year. Following this release, Dawn will follow, completing the trilogy in its homage to the conception, rise, peak and fall of a night out in youth club culture.
Evolving from Dusk‘s notes of disco, electronica and funk, the overall feel of Dark is notably heavier, with nods to an array of underground house genres. Deep house, bass, and progressive come in to play throughout a tracklisting filled with notable contemporaries, including the EP’s last single, “Again,” with Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs to create a euphoric slice of deep-house. The various moods of Dark include appearances from THEY., London Grammar‘s Dot Major, AlunaGeorge, and singer/songwriter Bruno Major.
Dark has also been released with a video component — an eponymous short film viewers can watch here. Together, this project is shaping up to be a statement for SG Lewis as an artist with depth and complexity and as a forward-thinking creator.
SG Lewis continues to complement his releases with live shows, now moving on from North America and starting a European tour in November.
SG Lewis has released his latest single on his road to a landmark career release. Featuring alternative electronic artist Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, “Again” is the latest in a string of collaborative singles from the UK-based songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist.
The track follows Lewis’s most recent release, “A.A.T,” another team up with Drew Love of duo THEY. and is taken from the second phase of his upcoming three-part concept album. Dusk, the album’s first piece, was released earlier this year, and “Again” is another single from the upcoming Dark. As “Again” shows us, this portion of the project will explore deeper, heavier sounds, with this track showcasing beauty in its moodiness in melody and melancholy. Dawn will follow, making Dusk, Dark, Dawn an exploration of the story of a night out through its different moods. A tribute to youth culture, this project sees SG Lewis dive deep into his creative exploratory space.
