CRITIC REVIEWS

Gigwise
Not only has SG Lewis provided an accurate portrait of the times he finds himself in but as the ever forward-thinking artist he is, brought his Nu-Disco sound into a new era.

Earmilk

Anchored to 70s disco reimagined for the modern day, SG Lewis’ times nods to clubs of the past,  as well as the present as we reminisce of kindred sprits across packed club floors.

Clash

Whilst this LP doesn’t break any new grounds or shatter any glass ceilings, it does bring is a beautiful blend of house, electro-pop and funk, culminating to astoundingly enjoyable heights and sparkly moments that would make even the biggest metal-music-elitist bright-eyed and giddy.

Dork
There’s something intensely feel-good about ‘times’ – its unspoken encouragement to throw caution to the wind and embrace pure joy is irresistible. In a way, it feels like a suspension in time; there’s something addictive in the basslines and synth.

NME
Overall, ‘times’ is an incredibly cohesive collection of slide-across-the-kitchen-floor dance-pop bangers that encourage you to hold on to the good times. SG Lewis’ long-awaited debut album is a much-needed beacon of light.

The Guardian
Given the British producer’s skill for emotionally attuned nightclub elation, his debut shouldn’t suffer from the shutdown of its natural club habitat

Pitchfork

Times is a pristine album of frictionless bangers, but these songs are so controlled that they never come close to catharsis. Lewis is clearly an expert student, absorbing and refracting the history of dance and disco with the ache of the present moment. Imagine what he could do if he aimed for the future.

DIY
The in-demand singer-songwriter-producer primes himself for new heights here - tapping into the hedonistic spirit of Studio 54, while applying a gloss that is very much of today.

times spends too much time sounding like an imitation.

There are probably only two ways you should hear ‘times’: through a massive sound system, or in the lobby of a Shoreditch hotel.

Are yall simply gonna ignore this fine disco album???? SG Lewis is kinda known but very underrated, he's a well rounded producer and should be more recognized. 'times' is spacial, fun, nostalgic & groovy af.

Well it's funky and dancey so that's kind of all it takes for me to like an album. There's definitely room for improvement but I can't be mad at this.

Favorite tracks: Time, Feed the Fire, Back To Earth, Chemicals, Impact, All We Have,
Least favorite: Heartbreak on the Dancefloor

Em seu debut, SG Lewis conseguiu entregar um trabalho bom utilizando de uma sonoridade com bastante influências oitentistas.

Porém ao mesmo tempo que considero-o um bom disco, acho ele um album bem genérico e nada de muito diferente do que outros artistas já fizeram ao tentar usar uma sonoridade mais disco.

O que destaco aqui é a produção do álbum que é muito boa, tirando isso ele não tem nada de muito interessante ... read more

first track really fells like Daft Punk and that's is amazing, sadly the rest isn't like that

First thing's first, I have absolutely got to call out my blatant bias on this one. SG Lewis is, and has been since I discovered him, my favourite edm artist in existence. I don't know what it is that he does, but his music has chemically bonded with me and the events throughout my life and consequently in some respects, his music is and will be a part of who I am, forever.

So as you can tell, my rating for this album is absolutely not to be trusted.
