“Fever Dreamer,” with its union of a propulsive percussion and an orchestral hum that gives way to a disco-style refrain sees SG Lewis and his collaborators, deliver a certified banger with seismic results. It’s pure seduction in pop form. “Fever Dreamer,” with its union of a propulsive percussion and an orchestral hum that gives way to a disco-style refrain sees SG Lewis and his collaborators, deliver a certified banger with seismic results. It’s pure seduction in pop form. Speaking on the track, SG Lewis reveals: “‘Fever Dreamer’ is the last taste of AudioLust & HigherLove before its release in 17 days, and a song about all-consuming admiration for someone.” Speaking about how the collaborations came about, SG adds, “I’ve been a fan of Charlotte’s music for ages now, and have wanted to work on something forever. We met up at my studio in LA, and ‘Fever Dreamer’ was the first idea we started work on. Channel and I work out of the same studios in LA a lot, and he was working in the room above around the time of the Charlotte session. One day he popped his head into the studio, heard the demo of ‘Fever Dreamer,’ and immediately started working on the missing second verse.”
Later this month sees the release of SG Lewis’ second studio album AudioLust & HigherLove, in which the singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer builds on the kaleidoscopic future-disco of his debut album times, in an expansive and ambitious record made of two halves. On one end of the spectrum, he crafts the kind of nocturnal bangers that dancefloors, underground raves, pool parties, and festivals subsist on. On the other end, he accesses a higher level of timeless pop ecstasy anchored by just the right amount of breezy hook-laden rock, organic instrumentation, and vocal eloquence. He suits one mood to the adrenaline rush of your wildest night out, and he tailors another to the blissful ride home at sunrise. It’s a diverse collection of classic but deeply contemporary cuts from one of the richest production talents of the last decade and includes a blockbuster collection of guests including the likes of today’s featured artists Channel Tres and Charlotte Day Wilson, as well as Tove Lo, Ty Dolla $ign and Lucky Daye—all alongside SG’s own vocals which are featured more prominently than ever before.
Talking about the album, SG Lewis reveals, “The album is clearly split into two worlds,” SG Lewis explains. “AudioLust is the darker, lusty, infatuated, short-lived, and ego-driven version of love. The second half represents a much deeper, actualized, and fulfilled version of love. Songs fall on either half of the record. I feel like I exist in the space between DJing and being an artist. The bulk of the album was written across a series of intensive studio residencies in the height of the pandemic, with the help of some incredibly talented friends, and allowed me to explore myself as an artist in a way that I would never have dared before.”

Something About Your Love
This past summer, SG Lewis returned to the limelight with two knockout singles: nocturnal floorfiller “Missing You” and the italo-influenced anthem “Something About Your Love” (LISTEN). Both tracks have seen widespread support across press and radio, including spots in Billboard’s ’50 Best Dance Songs of 2022,’ and racked up over 3M streams in just a few weeks. The follow up, released earlier this Fall was another double A-Side single, featuring the album’s euphoric opening track, “Infatuation” hailed by The FADER as “moredisco-indebted with a pleasant ethereal quality brought in by Lewis’s vocals,” and LP highlight “Vibe Like This”(LISTEN), featuring GRAMMY®-nominated powerhouse Ty Dolla $ign and LA rising star Lucky Daye, which Billboard called “a chilled-out moment,” adding that the new “soul-stirring double A-side sends expectations for what’s to come soaring.” Watch the Jason Lester-directed “Vibe Like This” video HERE. “Lifetime” arrived in the fall, earning praise from Stereogum who lauded the track as “an effortlessly buoyant, disco-inspired jam that floats along on a cloud of synths, strings, and aerated vocals.” The song was paired with a music video, directed by Jason Lester(WATCH).
