Artist / Writer / Producer / Remixer
Regarded by his peers as one of the most creative artists around, David E. Sugar has firmly cemented himself as one of the most promising talents on the UK underground. A multi-talented singer, songwriter, producer; he’s currently writing his follow up to album “Memory Store”, released early last year on Sunday Best.
David initially made a name for himself as a pioneer of ‘Chip-tune’ (think early 90’s computer game soundtracks dragged through an iMac) with the help of his Nintendo Game Boy and other toys like ET’s favourite the ‘Speak & Spell’. And he has toured the World with Calvin Harris, Digitalism, Hadouken and Deadmau5.
Before signing with Sunday Best, David’s single ‘Oi New York, This Is London’ was used to launch Joe Hot Chip’s Greco-Roman label and he has also previously released music on that celebrated vanguard of groundbreaking electro, Kitsuné. ‘To Yourself’ was released as a single and also featured on their Kitsuné Maison 5 compilation while ‘Although You May Laugh’ featured on Kitsuné Maison 6.
Debut album ‘Memory Store’ is full of evocative, off-kilter lyrics, swirling synths and Sugar’s unforgettable, trademark basslines. Though he wrote, performed, recorded and produced the album himself, and successfully toured the globe performing with just a laptop, he decided to take a fresh direction and enlisted the talents of two musician friends to join him in performing the album tracks live as a three-piece.
