UK producer GAWP joins the evolving HUGS imprint with ‘Lame Friends’ – an infectious roller with harrowing vocals.
Previously starring on a platter of formidable labels such as Dirtybird, Farris Wheel, Toolroom and Heldeep to name a few, GAWP’s signature twist has seen his name become a regular title in playlists for Claude Vonstroke, Will Clarke, Oliver Heldens, David Guetta, Idris Elba and more.
Capturing the imagination of a dark dingy night spot, this record was written about those lame friends who go home early from the clubs… otherwise known as ‘Canaries’ as they are the first to leave the mine 😉
Having previously toured and released under different guises and styles, GAWP is certainly no stranger to the music industry…
As a result of a lifetime in the studio perfecting his craft and being mindful to only put out music of the highest standard GAWP has already released a string of tracks on Mixmag’s ‘Label Of The Decade’ Dirtybird alongside a number of highly respected imprints including Toolroom, Elrow, Hotboi, Cheap Thrills, Night Bass and Main Course.
GAWPs productions consistently gain support from a vast spectrum of established artists and peers encompassing the likes of Claude VonStroke, Justin Martin, Chris Lake, Fisher, Idris Elba, Mark Knight, Walker and Royce, Bot and Kyle Watson.
With his undeniably unique sound, GAWP’s profile has exploded in the industry press, with regular coverage in Mixmag, DJ Mag, When We Dip, Earmilk, Nest HQ, Magnetic Mag, Insomniac and Resident Advisor.
This support across the board has quite rightly translated into DJ shows the world over. From his recent US tour with Oliver Heldens and a headline tour of Australia to regular shows throughout Europe, including the infamous Printworks in London. With over 35 US solo shows in almost every major city its clearly proof that DJ Mag are right to tip GAWP as “One To Watch”.
