Ariana Grande – ‘Breathin’ (SG Lewis Remix)
Even though we’ve only been on the internet for a few weeks, we haven't exactly been short on opportunities to rave about either the superhuman pop talents of Ariana Grande or the delectable electronic flair of Reading gun SG Lewis. As such, this latest addition to the latter’s SoundCloud feels tailor-made for us to revel in and share on these pages, and it comes conveniently on the verge of his biggest headline gig to date at Printworks on Friday.
Finally out in full after sneaking into his Instagram story a few weeks back, Lewis’ take on Sweetener standout ‘Breathin’ dispels much of the original’s agitated energy in favour of letting Grande’s pristine vocal flutter over steadfast claps and his signature bass-laced groove majesty. Putting your own distinct spin on perfection like this and making things just as stunning as they were before requires a certain combination of confidence, talent, and madness, and here he doing it with infectious aplomb. Eat your heart out, Mumford.
