Who doesn’t love Rihanna and Mikky Ekko’s heart pummeling ballad Stay? The song has been covered far and wide since it stole everyone’s hearts. Some of the best renditions were huge genre-crossing surprises too, including Low’s superb cover, a personal favorite of mine. But there haven’t been very many electronic edits of the smash hit, at least not an abundance that merited much praising and adoration. New Orleans producer CRWNS, however, has offered up a fresh new edit of Stay, which he’s named S-T-A-Y, and the wildly rousing and breathtakingly lifting track warrants some much deserved attention. His anthemic remix pitch shifts Rihanna’s voice giving it a more sprightly and ethereal aura to go with S-T-A-Y’s expansive and spacious, voluminous and explosive atmosphere. CRWNS has crafted a cinematic trap and monumental bass masterpiece out of Stay. And he’s giving it away as a free download, here.

Exit Friendzone and Two Friends collaborated on a riveting original named Overdose last fall, one which we still can’t get out of our heads today (and gladly so, too). Overdose, which features soulful vocals by Natalola, has since received some magnificent remix treatments, out altogether as an official remix package. Chicago by way of New Orleans producer CRWNS presents us with one of my favorite jams out of the four track release, a tremolo future bass and trap edit bursting with brisk vivacious energy. The beauty of the original is left unscathed while CRWNS dresses it in resplendent new threads on his spirited darting, swift bounding edit. You can stream the rest of the Overdose remixes, which includes additional re-works by Sokko, Jameston Thieves, and Jinco, in full on Soundcloud.

It’s been a long moment since I’ve shared some truly earth shaking, brain rattling trap with you, and this one’s an immediate must to scratch that dirty trap itch you might be harboring. Red hot, meteorically rising SoCal producer NGHTMRE’s massive anthem Street gets a whomping, stomping remix, courtesy of New Orleans based producer CRWNS. CRWNS captures my full attention with this shifty, jittery display of future bass and trap magnificence. The heaving, blistering beast is a free download, here.
