SG Lewis teamed up with Master Peace on a remix of his brand new single ‘Chemicals’, out now via PMR/Virgin EMI following its premiere on BBC 1Xtra last night – listen HERE. The soaring, funk-driven track is produced and performed by SG Lewis, with new additional vocals from Dazed 100 alumni Master Peace. ‘Chemicals’ has already accumulated over 3 million streams and is the first track to be released from SG’s eagerly anticipated debut album, with more details to be announced soon.
“I heard Master Peace’s music through a friend earlier this year and was blown away. He can jump from genre to genre and is impossible to pigeonhole as an artist. His energy in the studio is unrivalled and I’m predicting huge things from him in the next few months! I wanted him to bring that energy to Chemicals and so this version was born, I love it so much!”
‘Chemicals’ follows 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 previously collaborated with Col3trane, 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.
