Stephen wows in inaugural Monstercat releases, ‘Play Me Like a Violin’ and ‘Stay’

Since the release of his debut album, Sincerely, in May 2016, singer/producer Stephen has been relatively quiet, aside from a few vocal features. He burst onto the scene with memorable tracks like “Crossfire,” which has amassed more than 12 million plays on SoundCloud since its initial release in December 2015. Stephen made two follow-up tracks to the hit song, “Crossfire Pt. II” and “Crossfire Pt. III,” which enlisted the talents of rappers and producers for the next chapters of the song.

In the time since, the talented musician has been gearing up for two back-to-back releases on Monstercat‘s Instinct brand, with “Stay” and “Play Me Like a Violin” coming out on Feb. 8 and 9, respectively.

“Play Me Like a Violin” features gorgeous layered harmonies contrasted with a gritty string melody. The song allows Stephen’s emotion-packed vocals to take center stage, supported by a backbone of subtle instrumentals.

Stephen enlists Lindsey Cook to create the core of “Stay.” The simple audio drop of her saying “all I wanna do is stay” sets the mood for the track, assisted by a simple guitar melody. Stephen’s vocals soar in the verses and chorus of this beautifully uncomplicated track.

The two tracks mark Stephen’s compelling return to releasing music, and we can’t wait to hear what else he has up his sleeve.

UK drum n’ bass authority, Delta Heavy, has compounded efforts with LA trap producer, Dirty Audio, for their new drumstep single, “Stay,” featuring seasoned vocalist, HOLLY. “Stay” is a joint release on both DNB patriarch, Andy C‘s RAM Records and eclectic Canadian label, Monstercat — marking Delta Heavy’s debut release on the latter.

“We had a lot of fun making the track with Andrew, and we’re all super proud of how it turned out, especially as it really feels like a true blend of all our signature styles,” said Delta Heavy said of Dirty Audio, who will soon embark on his Australia/New Zealand tour.

The cross-over track wields elements of DNB, trap, and dubstep, prompting a sardonic, “Have fun deciding what genre this is,” from Delta Heavy, themselves. HOLLY’s wistful vocals lend acute contrast to the track’s high-speed DNB breaks and shrilling bass.

John Mayer & Alessia Cara cover ‘Stay’ during LA dive bar performance [VIDEO]

This post was originally published on this site

 

The title of Zedd’s biggest hit to date, “Stay,” has become somewhat ironic when evaluated in the context of the single’s enduring commercial success.

The Alessia Cara feature is currently charting its twenty-second week atop the Billboard’s Dance/Electronic chart. Overseas, Stay has newly earned a triple-platinum certification in Australia as views on the official music video on YouTube surpass the forty-five-million mark. “Stay” the song has, and stay the song will, it seems.

A testament to Zedd’s talent as a DJ and producer, and an irresistible showcase of Cara’s vocal chops, Stay has gone on to capture the attention of John Mayer who covered the song on his July 26th show in Los Angeles as a part of Bud Light’s Dive Bar Tour. The performance, delivered at California’s Echoplex venue, is a brief deviation from Mayer’s current initiative, his “The Search For Everything” world tour.

After playing staples from his musical library like “Waiting on the World to Change,” John Mayer brought out a special guest to join him onstage during the show— none other than Alessia Cara. The singer songwriter dueted with Mayer on his 2006 hit, “Gravity,” but not before Cara and Mayer could link vocals for a cover of “Stay,” minus the synths of course.

Cara and Mayer divided the song’s verses, with Mayer lending his signature rasp to the tune’s second verse before playing the role of a background singer during the chorus as Cara once more assumed the lead. Mayer has long been known for his somewhat surprising and eclectic collaborations and this one hardly disappoints.
