A long time in the making, “Gone Missing”, was originally written with Becky Hill in 2014, and Lewis has been awaiting the correct moment to release the single to the world. The track now features vocalist BB Diamond, who has spent the last year on tour as a backing-vocalist for Jess Glynne. Having spent the Summer touring alongside the likes of Steve Aoki, DJ Snake, and Bauuer, as well as receiving co-signs from Skrillex very early on in his career, it’s apparent that Shift K3Y is a truly special, and acknowledged talent in electronic music. One for the UK to be proud of.
Speaking on the meaning behind “Gone Missing”, Lewis states: “Words cant really describe how excited I am for this release, it has been the longest in the making out of all my tracks so far. The journey that this track has taken, and everything that has been thrown at it…its still standing in time for release! To me this is what I would consider a new school take on a very familiar UKG sound.”
Training himself to exist on 5 hours of sleep a night, Lewis’ work ethic and love for music, means he works around the clock. Writing songs across the globe, and at his UK bases (previously the historic Sarm Studios, and now his new musical home in Holborn,) Lewis has been cultivating a musical catalogue that far exceeds his young years.
Not failing to mention his UK Chart success with “Touch” and “I Know”, Shift K3Y’s back catalogue is already extensive and impressive; most recently sharing his Off The Record project, which garnered support across the board from Clash Magazine to Pitchfork, Revolt,and Okay Player.
With his 4th single via Columbia Records “Gone Missing”, Shift K3Y returns to his roots as a skilled and undeniably brilliant producer. The song will feature on his forthcoming debut album, which has already seen contributions from the likes of Chaka Khan, DJ Mustard, MNEK and James Fauntleroy.
