GAWVI, a name that is instantly recognisable to many within the world of hip-hop, marks a change in his musical career with the release of a dance-infused cut, ‘Late Nights’ – out now via Reach Records.
Under the tutelage of Rodney Jerkins and Pharrell, GAWVI rose to prominence workingon the Grammy nominated hip-hop album,‘Anomaly’ by Lecrae, as well as on Andy Mineo’sBillboard 200 album,Uncomfortable. Having honed his craft over the past 5 years,receiving praise from Esquire to MTV,and support on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, GAWVI is now taking a defiant leap into a career as a solo dance artist with ‘Late Nights’.
Beginning with a distinctly hip-hop quality, the introduction soon materialises into a 2-step chord driven build-up,before dropping into a fast-paced and uplifting chorus. Structurally running parallel to GAWVI’s journey as a producer – transitioningfrom hip-hop to dance – he employs a thumping kick and a jazz-flute top line to create this summer’s smash hit.
The first single from GAWVI’s forthcoming Lost in Hue EP, and a taster of things to come, ‘Late Nights’ will both surprise and excite GAWVI’s already loyal and far-reaching fan base.
Lost In Hue is available on July 29 via Reach Records, and is the first of two EP’s to be released from GAWVI this sumer.
