DescriptionMeeting in Ibiza over ten years ago and remaining there ever since, Audiojack are house pioneers and their single on DFTD, 'Stay Glued' featuring Kevin Knapp, is a tech house masterpiece. With a commanding vocal, a rumbling bassline, and a classic tech house thumping beat to accompany, this track is full of attitude. As well as the duo's new 2014 Tool Version, the package boasts an array of remixes from a host of underground stars.
London DJ ZDS' rework is energetic and insanely catchy. Selecting a snippet of the original vocal, which dips in and out of the mix, it still has a moody and ghetto tech edge, and is layered with a simplistic thumping beat and bassline which combine seamlessly. Sebo K's reworking is dynamic, with a progressive synth layered in parts over the minimal tech beat, it has a calming and soothing element, yet it is energetic and remains true to the original style. FCL's adaptation fuses many elements of electronic music together. It has a tech edge, but with the addition of a bassline which sits with the vocal, a high hat beat and high pitched electronic synths it is an interesting blend of styles. Finally, Gorge completely transformed 'Stay Glued'; adding a heavier bassline and an uplifting groove, it loses its tech edge, and shuffles into the deep house genre. Stripping it of its heavy moodiness, and using a small snippet of the original vocal, it has a more chilled vibe.
