AUDIO: First Listen - Kastle's 'Make You Stay ft. JMSN'
Fresh off his SXSW live show debut, Kastle releases the second single "Make You Stay" ft. JMSN today, April 9, from his highly anticipated debut album, KASTLE, dropping April 23 on his own label Symbols Recordings. Click below for a first listen!
"Make You Stay" sees Kastle go half-time in collaboration with Los Angeles artist JMSN. The track -- which follows the success of Kastle's remix of JMSN's "Alone" last year -- is filled with lush atmospherics, catchy vocal harmonies and what has become the voice of Kastle: the keyboard solo. "Make You Stay" also highlights the dynamic nature of Kastle's forthcoming album, whose first single "Red Light" ft. Ayah Marar has already seen radio play on Jason Bentley's KCRW Metropolis show, Plastician's Rinse.fm show and BBC Radio 1.
Creator of Symbols Recordings, Kastle is a pioneer in forward-thinking electronic music that fuses his long-time love of hip-hop and R&B with sounds from garage, house, dubstep, and bass-heavy music. Last year, his track "Stay Forever" from the eponymous EP reached the iTunes Top 10 Best Electronic Songs of 2012, and he embarked on his highly successful 'Stay Forever' tour across North America, and into Australia and New Zealand. Kastle has garnished strong media attention from the likes of XLR8R, URB, MTV Hive and Fact Magazine along with plays on BBC Radio 1 and KCRW.
Kastle's debut album KASTLE drops on April 23, followed by his first North America live tour.
