(Atlanta, GA - July 20, 2016) - GAWVI, a name that is instantly recognizable to many within the world of hip-hop, marks a change in his musical career with the release of a dance-infused cut, "Late Nights" - out now via Reach Records.
Under the tutelage of Rodney Jerkins and Pharrell, GAWVI rose to prominence working on the Grammy nominated hip-hop album, Anomaly by Lecrae, as well as on Andy Mineo's Billboard 200 album, Uncomfortable. Having honed his craft over the past 5 years, receiving praise from Esquire to MTV, GAWVI is now taking a defiant leap into a career as a solo dance artist with "Late Nights."
Beginning with a distinctly hip-hop quality, the introduction soon materializes into a 2-step chord driven build-up, before dropping into a fast-paced and uplifting chorus. Structurally running parallel to GAWVI's journey as a producer - transitioning from hip-hop to dance - he employs a thumping kick and a jazz-flute top line to create this summer's smash hit.
The first single from GAWVI's debut EP, Lost In Hue, and a taste of things to come, "Late Nights" will both surprise and excite GAWVI's already loyal and far-reaching fan base.
Lost In Hue, available digitally on July 29 via Reach Records, is the first of two EP's to be released from GAWVI this summer.
