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 the latest signing to Rob da Bank’s label 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. The latter also makes an appearance on his forthcoming debut album 'Memory Store' (due for release early October 2010).
David's new single 'Party Killer' is the perfect antidote to mundane indie-electro. David’s spitted spiky vocals cut through the intricately layered guitars and samples that make up this buoyant portion of precision perfect pop to complete a sure fire stone cold killer tune. If there’s one thing that’s for sure, kill the party is the last thing this track would do.
‘Party Killer’ will be released as a double A side 7” single backed with non-album track ‘Travel Light’ while the digital formats will feature remixes by Disco of Doom, Adam Smith, The Phenomenal Hand Clap Band, Renaissance Man and Sunday Best’s own re-take.
David’s live shows and forthcoming album feature the talents of a live band; a fresh direction to his previous work.
