August 15th sees the release of the debut single by underground veteran producer Lewi White. Young Guns which is released on 360 Records features four of the UK’s hottest talents; Devlin, Ed Sheeran, Griminal and Yasmin, alongside new mixtape in the ‘Beyond Da Booth’ series; ‘Home of the Great’.
This song has been supported by Fearne Cotton and Zane Lowe, at BBC Radio 1, was featured on Nihal’s Review Show and has been added to the Ministry of Sound’s ‘Sound of Dubstep 3’ compilation, out 22nd Aug. The single also reached a number 2 slot on the Music Week indie chart and was ‘Record of the Day’ on 2 August 2011. The single was first given a digital release on 10 July 2011.
From the age of fifteen Lewi White was already familiar with the growth of London’s infamous pirate radio circuit, and became associated with some of the top names in the underground dance scene. This early introduction into music led to him turning his trade to producing aged just seventeen…. Now 26, Lewi White is one of the most sought after young producers on the urban music circuit.
Owner of ‘Beyond Da Booth’ studios, which he describes as “home to the boys”, Lewi is a true underground veteran. He’s produced for some of the scene’s best known names including Roll Deep, Chipmunk and Tinchy Styder, Devlin, Ed Sheeran, Griminal and Yasmin. Lewi most recently produced a number of tracks on Devlin’s 2010 debut album ‘Bud, Sweat & Beers’ which was a top 20 hit. Lewi also worked on a number of projects with Paul Weller, including 2010’s remake of ‘Fast Car, Slow Traffic’ with Devlin.
It’s not only a Grime relationship Lewi has struck with music however, from the offset through to the present day he has produced bass-heavy, down tempo rhythms for some of the UK’s greatest rappers including the likes of Klashnekoff, Shameless and Wretch 32. Lewi also has produced Dubstep, prevalent most recently in ‘Back Again’ with rising South London MC Kozzie which was featured on Ministry Of Sound’s ‘Adventures In Dubstep And Beyond’.
As for this song I really like it. The combination of these 4 incredible artists is fantastic. Young Guns is a mixture of Grime/ Rap and Dubstep. The video to accompany Young Guns is brilliant. It sees Devlin, Yasmin, Ed and Griminal being tested on by men in White Coats. As the song progresses you see that each have special powers and control one of the 4 elements. Yasmin controls Wind, Ed controls Fire, Griminal controls Earth and Devlin controls Water.
