After making some impressive waves in the dance music world over the past couple of years with her consistently high quality outputs, Greek/American DJ & producer Xenia Ghali is back with ‘Stick Around’, a track that is set to continue Xenia on her vertical trajectory into the upper echelons of the electronic scene. After consecutive Billboard Dance Club Songs Chart #1’s with her previous two offerings, ‘Under These Lights’ and more recently ‘Places’, Xenia returns with a record that has the potential to eclipse those heights.
The multi-instrumentalist has previously showcased her extensive knowledge of musicality and arrangement, and her obvious talents in these departments are on glaring show for ‘Stick Around’. Piano chords instantly establish the song-focused nature of the track, while the reminiscent, reverb laden vocal joins to firmly place ‘Stick Around’ into radio friendly territory. The drop unveils a different side, as the deep wooden bass also gives the track heavy dancefloor credentials and ensures its widespread appeal. The intensity of the song builds throughout towards a crescendo of heartfelt lyrics, following pounding basslines and glistening hats.
