David E. Sugar’s 2010 debut album ‘Memory Store’ firmly cemented him alongside some of the electronic scene’s heavyweights. ‘His debut jaunts with a low-swung swagger that'll resonate with anyone who's found favour with Hot Chip (especially their early works), WhoMadeWho, LCD or Black Ghosts… 8/10’ said iDJ magazine , yet the album still maintains a unique presence amongst its contemporaries. Ever since his pioneering ‘Chip Tune’ releases, David E. Sugar has continued to release innovative and often daring records.
Drowned in Sound described him as ‘inordinately likeable and absurdly catchy’ and ‘Fingers On The Button’, the 3rd single to be released from his debut, is a quirky slice of electro pop using almost conversational delivery and continuous synths to build into a erratic and exciting fusion of styles, it’s a breath of fresh air in an otherwise bland electro climate. Leo Zero provides a spacey house mix featuring a distinctive wobble which will surely bend heads. While the summer ready Slow Motion drift remix by Sunday Best is a breezy laid back release perfect for the summer. ’Although You May Laugh’ is a softer harmonious bass fuelled ballad with compressed synths and melodic guitar riffs, its production echoes the great releases from his early years. Regular Berghain (Berlin) DJ and producer Tommy Four Seven uses a delayed vocal echo as a backdrop to build a tense, slow burning techno mix perfect for the afterhours (exclusive to Beatport.com). While the Drums of Death remix, is a club ready electro mix using steal drums to create a relentless groove for the dance floor. With previous single releases on Kitsune and Greco Roman, David has gained radio support from the likes of Zane Lowe, Pete Tong, Huw Stephens, Kissy Sellout and DJs such as Jesse Rose, Hot Chip and Groove Armada. It’s his unique blend, accessibility and credibility, that assures David E. Sugar will continue to remain at the forefront of UK electronica for years to come.
