Palmistry on how his father’s death inspired ‘Afterlife’ and working with SOPHIE on Rihanna material
Last week, SG Lewis dropped the second part of his concept trilogy, ‘Dusk’, ‘Dark’, ‘Dawn’, a record that narrates the course of a night out, charting the ebbs and flows of the various stages of revelry.
The 24-year-old production wunderkind has earned plaudits for his emotive solo efforts of introspective pop, first garnering attention for a Jessie Ware remix in 2014, and has since displayed an ambitious work rate, undertaking remixes for Dua Lipa and production for Dave and G-Eazy.
On his Dummy mix, the producer behind ‘100M’s’ shows off his unparalleled selection ability – and it’s the sound of the night out you want to be going on.
“In order to gain inspiration for the creation of ‘Dark’, I found myself going out more than usual (for purely professional reasons, of course…)” SG Lewis says. “This mix consists of some new songs I’ve fallen in love with over the last few months, some edits of my own music, and some old songs I’ve rediscovered recently.”
