Rising star S-X follows productions for the likes of Tinie Tempah, Skepta, Childish Gambino, Lil’ Wayne and Lil’ Kim, with the release of his debut single, ‘For Myself’ featuring the silky vocals of Jessica Sutta...
Already well known in the underground for producing incredible trap and hip hop beats, this stylish, deep house track demonstrates the skills and diversity of this highly talented 22 year old UK producer.
Sam Gumbley a.k.a. S-X first came to prominence aged just 16 with his Grime hit ‘Woooo Riddim’. His inherent connection to the UK underground scene quickly led to high profile collaborations with artists such as Tinie Tempah, Dappy and Skepta. By the age of 19 S-X had signed his first publishing deal with Warner Chappell and began making an impact across the pond, writing and producing with such names as Li’l Wayne, Young Money and Childish Gambino.
Jessica Sutta needs little introduction. The former platinum-selling Pussycat Doll has enjoyed global success and a solo career that has seen her top the Billboard Dance charts 3 times.
S-X was in the studio with producer Mams Taylor and Jessica in LA, where he is working on some tracks for her album. They struck up a conversation about love and happiness where Jessica argued that allowing your happiness to depend on someone else is an illusion. She concluded that to truly love others one must learn to love oneself. During this conversation S-X started playing some chords and ‘For Myself’ began to take shape.
The Club Mix features dramatic piano chords and strings as Jessica’s sultry vocals pull you into the lyrics, before the track drops into a beautiful, Balearic styled, deep house groove.
The release also comes with S-X’s Atmosphere remix aimed at the Trap dancefloors and showcasing his trademark, speaker-shaking beats and basslines. Alongside this is a quality garage mix from respected UK producer TRC. Completing the package is an S-X instrumental and radio edit.
Recently premiered by MistaJam on Radio 1 on Saturday 25 October show with a glowing review, ‘For Myself’ is set to underline S-X’s credentials as THE name to watch in 2015.
