‘Wallpaper’ is the first single to be taken from Swedish production duo STAYGOLD’s debut album ‘Rain On Our Parade’. On the track they share production duties with fellow Swede Style Of Eye, AKA Linus Eklow, and are joined by Zimbabwean singer Pauline Kamusewu, Pow, on vocals. Quickly proving an undeniable force, the single has already been a top 3 iTunes, Spotify and airplay hit in Holland as well as spending an impressive ten weeks in the Top 10, with the original video racking up over 1.2million views to date. Following growing support, the single is now set for release on Virgin EMI in the UK, backed by a diverse remix package.
The original track is an inventive blend of musical influences characterized by its nuanced arrangement and irresistible, offbeat melody. Drawing upon pop, electro and disco influences, its nagging riffs and danceable beats perfectly compliment Pow’s timeless and effortlessly soulful vocals.
The new remixes breathe fresh dance floor life into STAYGOLD and Style Of Eye’s production. Dutch heavyweight Gregor Salto primes it for peak time dance floors with an incisive big room rework while his long-term friend and collaborator Funkin Matt who follows his latest Fool’s Gold release with a propulsive electro version. Black Butter signed artist and sought after remixer (Willy Moon, Peking Duck, Parachute Youth) Hostage steps up with a low-slung house rework that pairs the quirky melodies of the original with a bumping bassline, while touted newcomer Friend Within, who has been picking up support from the likes of Disclosure, Skream and B.Traits, completes the package with a ruff-cut house remix that retains the soulful flourishes that make the original so endearing.
