The Toolroom Records label boss and tech-house maven, Mark Knight, has crafted a house remix of David Guetta‘s “Stay (Don’t Go Away)” featuring RAYE that provokes that festive elrow atmosphere. With a twinkling marimba melody atop a walking bass line, the track rides those mesmerizing loops through RAYE’s dance floor vocals. The hook glides in with a subtle, yet provocative addition of two horn notes that complete the ambiance of a proper tech-house party-starter.
The collaboration simply makes sense after Guetta’s house alias Jack Back previously released a couple of his singles the Toolroom imprint.
Knight has had a busy summer, touring across Europe and running house in Ibiza. He also recently released a single through elrow, “The General,” and rolled out Toolroom Stateside, taking the four-on-the-floor collective to the US with residencies in Chicago, LA, New York, Palms Springs, San Francisco, and Washington DC.
