David E. Sugar

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 gifted singer, songwriter and producer, his debut album Memory Store is full of evocative, off-kilter lyrics, swirling synths and Sugar’s unforgettable, trademark basslines.

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’. He has previously toured the world with Calvin Harris, Digitalism and Hadouken and supported Fenech-Soler on their UK tour in October 2010.

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 and also makes an appearance on ‘Memory Store’.

With support now burgeoning from radio presenters such as Zane Lowe, Lauren Laverne, Jon Hillcock, Kissy Sellout, Eddie Temple-Morris, Joe Ransom and DJs such as Jesse Rose, Hot Chip, Tom Findlay (Groove Armada), Sinden and Hervé, it seems David E. Sugar is on the verge of something big.
