SG Lewis (real name Sam Lewis) hops on Stage Hoppers dropping not one, but two brand new singles: “Missing You” and “Something About Your Love.” The London-based singer-songwriter, producer and DJ is no stranger to dancefloor glory, having collaborated with Elton John, Dua Lipa, Clairo, Tove Lo, Khalid and many more! Both tracks are available to buy/stream as a double A-side single today via Astralwerks.
SG Lewis’ double-feature release ushers listeners through rich dance music history. From the start, “Missing You” exudes 80s new wave euphoria while relishing in fresh contemporary dance aura. The shimmering synths soar over the cheeky bass line and incisive drum beat, complimenting the tuneful chorus “I’m not missing you like I’m supposed to.” Second, “Something About Your Love” follows a direction inspired by Daft Punk with its 70s-era drums, funk-inflected bass line, and overtly disco vibrancy.
SG Lewis pays homage to classic dance music with ingenious modernized flair. The adrenaline-fueled “Missing You” leads into the contrasting bliss of “Something About Your Love,” showcasing the duality that permeates SG Lewis’ new era.
Speaking about “Missing You,” SG Lewis reveals, “Conceptually, it felt like the perfect introduction. It’s a story about temptation and dwindling fear. Your eyes are wandering.” On “Something About Your Love,” SG adds “It’s no secret I’m a massive Daft Punk fan. It’s the closest thing I’ve ever made to a tribute to them. I was listening to Discovery a lot, and there’s a specific technique to it. I chopped up the sample of these seventies keys and drums. It came together easily. Lyrically, It’s a pure confession of admiration for someone. It’s the perfect contrast to ‘Missing You’.”
