Lewis Thompson and David Guetta have teamed up to release their infectious summer anthem ‘Take Me Back’. Watch the video HERE.
‘Take Me Back’ highlights Lewis Thompson and David Guetta’s ability to produce tracks ready for the club and radio alike, combining deep house tones with 90s tinged production to create an infectious crossover single.
Speaking about the track Lewis says: “Nostalgia is one of the most powerful emotions in the world, everyone relates to that sudden feeling of being taken back to a moment in time. “Take me back” takes you on a ride to reminisce and relive the past, and cherish what’s in front of us right now. I’m really proud to be putting this out as my first record”
Speaking about Lewis, David Guetta says: ‘He’s always been a bit behind the scenes….but he’s so talented, I want the world to see it’.
The undeniably feel-good track is accompanied by a cinematic, tongue in cheek video directed by acclaimed Japanese filmmaker Taichi. The unique concept sees a collective of intoxicated businessmen solemnly dance through the Tokyo streets at night in a choreographed stumble.
Taichi says: ‘At first, I thought it was going to be a challenge for me to make a visually cinematic music video with a sense of humour… but I believe we were able to pull it off on this one! I am very proud to make a video with a unique concept in my home country and am grateful to make the visuals for these artists. Finally, I would also like to thank the Japanese businessmen who have a weak tolerance for alcohol and pass out in the street. This would have never been possible without them’.
‘Take Me Back’ is Lewis Thompson’s first single as an artist in his own right since signing with RCA, but it’s by no means his first floor-filler. One half of DJ/producer duo Just Kiddin’, Thompson has carved a name for himself as one of the most prolific and in demand producers on the scene. He has previously worked with some of the biggest names in the industry including MNEK, Joel Corry, Anne-Marie, Little Mix, Becky Hill, James Hype and Jade Thirlwall and is behind some of the top selling UK singles. Now, with an arsenal of his own feel-good dance-pop anthems, Lewis looks set to step out of the shadows and become one of the biggest names in UK music.
