Tourist – Stay

Days like today are made for sitting inside (with an animal if you own one), and some great music. If you don’t share yer abode with an animal it doesn’t matter because we can both still bask in the excellence that is Tourist‘s ‘Stay”.

London based producer Tourist, (aka William Phillips), has released this new track off of an upcoming EP with Method Records. It’s just as mellow as his earlier work but incorporates some minor darkness into that ambience. The bassline floats so beautifully in the scheme of things you can’t even really call it a bassline. And of course, Tourists’ beautifully crafted beats lend the track just enough structure to sink your teeth into. Nothing feels too anchored. Everything feels like a warm, flowing continuous experience.  Just perfect, perfect music to satisfy any of your summer longings dashed by the precipitation outside. Enjoy.

Rihanna – Stay (Marius Hörsturz Edit)

I have one week left here in London. After being here two weeks, it rained for the first time late last night. Not just the typical rain like London does. Lightening storms over the city. This burst of light, a force of energy really, just got me back to thinking and working and playing in the real world. Sometimes when I take  a break from life, I need a reminder that the world is turning, its making fresh energy.  So when you run out or away, it is still churning out new sources of life. Pouring through the streets of London or LA or wherever you find yourself.

I feel that about this song. The original Rihanna release was overplayed nearly immediately upon release, but this new edit from Marius Hörsturz has given this song a revitalized energy. Hörsturz, adds in a deeper house sound and heavy vocals laying this on the memorable piano tune from the original track and adding in his personal style of chill house, as he notes it. You can feel this new energy which has been infused into this song bringing it from a solemn plea for more time to a throbbing, airy tune penetrating your ear drums for more. Taking a break-up song to a dance tune.  Marius Hörsturz is someone you should definitely take the time to explore more of. With some of his other recent edits, like Asta – My Heart Is On Fire and  The XX – StarsHörsturz delivers deep house edits filed with the vigor needed to bring you back from wherever. If you wish.

Henry Krinkle – Stay

The air is cold outside. But not so much that you can’t handle it. It’s that temperature where you’re borderline wondering if it’s too cold to go inside or use it as a complement to the enjoyment of this song — one that goes perfect with this weather. It’s haunting, it’s daunting, but at the same time it’s inviting, and kinda catchy, and it surrounds you with its mystique.

The spacial crackling that introduces this track is the beginning of a journey we could call deep pop. I refuse to categorize this one as the usual deep house track. The song is by no means new, it came out in late June on the first ever Future Grooves Compilation as a free download. Apparently Henry is from South Florida but lives in Shanghai. That and the one liner biography on his Facebook page that reads “I know I’m a G — I make music, I cook and I always please my woman — winner.” Aside from that, there’s not much I know about Mr. Krinkle. Well, he also says that he “makes sexy music for sexy people”. In this, I concur.
