Though the Feist version of this melancholic folk ballad has plenty of passion and pain, it’s not quite as visceral as the way James Blake plays with the contrast in “Limit To Your Love.” He absolutely rips into the piano, voice vacillating between skating across thin ice and diving in head-first—there’s something about this cover that feels like a first dance and a last dance all at once.
The fertile and prolific alliance between soul and electronic music has found in SG Lewis one of its most recent and outstanding disciples. At the young age of twenty, this Liverpool producer has uncovered a path which travels from James Blake to Disclosure and gives a digital gloss to smooth and velvety R&B. After remixing “You & I (Forever)”, by Jessie Ware, the British artist debuted on PMR Beat Club with “Warm”, his first single was streamed over half a million times in just a few months. At the end of last summer, Lewis followed it up with “Shivers”, an EP on which the warmth of R&B takes on a more avant-garde facet. With growing popularity, at the same time, as a DJ, the British artist has released a second EP .
