Although pop singer-songwriter and producer #CharliePuth admits himself that he was late on the “Outkast train,” the fact that he almost crashed when he first heard their song “ATLiens” on the radio makes up for it. Citing everything from that life threatening hip-hop moment to the pop rock sweetness of Natalie Imbruglia’s cover of “Torn,” Puth lists his top five “stickiest hooks” in The FADER’s latest episode of Top Five. Being the perfect pitch prodigy that he is, Puth appropriately plays the tunes by memory on a lap-sized piano in the segment and gets technical when referring to tracks like his number one pick, “Who Am I (What’s My Name)” by Snoop Dogg featuring Dr. Dre. “I love that Dre would always put the crash symbol at the beginning of every fourth bar,” geeks Puth about the former N.W.A. member’s production style. For a musical element more casual music listeners can cling onto though, Puth sheepishly sings, “Snoop Doggy, Dogg.” To hear the full story about how he almost crashed his car listening to Outkast and the rest of his favorite hooks, watch the rest of the segment above.

SG Lewis – times: Past & Present (Documentary) | The FADER

The FADER – SG Lewis pays tribute to club culture in a period when the dancefloor is more needed than ever. “Life is pretty fucking boring without it,” SG Lewis says looking back on a year without any access to clubs. “Without moments to look back at and the experiences that make life worth living it is all pretty dull. It’s a shame that we have a government that just doesn’t care.” Wandering around an empty Phonox in west London, he lays out his fears for the future of night life across the world, as a generation of young people miss out on the formative experiences of the dancefloor amid a global pandemic. Just how many establishments across the U.K. can make it through without major financial support? In times: Past & Present, The FADER’s insightful new documentary, we explore the dance music scene’s most testing period with the help of SG Lewis. He talks about his life spent manning the decks at clubs across the country, from his student days in Liverpool as a resident at the formative Chibuku night to his status as a major producer and songwriter in his own right. He also discusses how experience of the past year has shaped his new record, originally called Good Times, now simply titled times as a reflection of the challenges faced this past year.
