StéLouse has been a long favorite on IHM. And we just learned that the Denver based producer has chosen to change his name, or rather, the way he spells his name, to StayLoose (perhaps to avoid any pronunciation confusion?). With the nom du plume transformation comes a new song that marks a fresh direction for the esteemed artist, too. Fight Back, which features ever pervasive guest vocalist Nevve on spirited vocals, ventures deep into high voltage melodic pop with its rhythmic marching beats, high flying melody, and rollicking percussion. It’s a vigorous and mighty anthem, a tenaciously encouraging rallying cry. StayLoose explains: 

“With so much happening in the world and everyone with a different opinion and belief system, we must remember that its through a unified front, through taking a stand together, that we have the ability to make the changes we wish to see in the world”. Fight Back, out on Dim Mak, can be found on Apple Music, here.

We’re still utterly gutted that we had to miss STéLOUSE at Popscene in San Francisco recently. It’s hard to “stay loose” knowing you missed an epic show, and wasted a couple of much coveted tickets for it, too. But everything feels better for the moment as we sway to the euphonious opening bars and grandiose beginnings of the Denver producer’s latest single, Nobody Told Me

STéLOUSE enlists LA artist David Davis on the track, who lays down some truly sonorous sailing, powerfully soaring vocals. Nobody Told Me further emphasizes STéLOUSE‘s multi-facted talent as he goes a more vocal-driven alt pop and progressive pop route on the anthemic lifting ballad. It’s been much vindicating watching some of our favorite producers expand their range lately on their new releases, and we’re excited for what this means for the future of electronica and pop. Grab the heart bursting single, here, and catch

STéLOUSE  on the rest of his tour, here. Just don’t rub it in my face, please. It already sucks too much that we missed him.

Denver production whiz StéLouse surprised us a couple months ago with a collaboration with Tilian Pearson of Dance Gavin Dance, and the pair turned out to be a perfect fit for each other on future bass/chill trap anthem Bones. Colombian born, Miami based producer Flapo has given the song his own twist, remixing it into a euphoria inducing aria with a beautifully affecting atmospheric makeup that really takes full advantage of Tilian’s silky melting vocals. Trap has never been more gorgeously ethereal than on Flapo’s mellifluously lathered re-work. You can download Flapo’s remix for free, here.

Aside from his boldly riveting, soulful flaring solo work, Southern California’s Bryce Fox has also proven himself quite the sensational accomplice when it comes to collaborations with gifted electronic producers. We’re still obsessing over his stint on Win and Woo’s infectious Chicago tribute, but we can’t help but swoon over this sultry, bluesy slinker from Denver’s STéLOUSE, too. There’s a playful teasing, mischievously tip toeing quality to the frisky fluttering effusion of future funk and future soul. Download/stream Sociopath, here.

It’s an unexpected but very welcome surprise that Dance Gavin Dance’s Tilian Pearson has made a cameo as guest vocalist on the latest single from Denver’s STéLOUSE. Turns out, the post-hardcore band’s vocalist has the perfect voice for the producer’s anthemic new future bass and chill trap song. Just the right amount of emotive rawness and sentimental grit emanates from his smooth crooning while STéLOUSE charms us with plinking chimes, dashing keys, and ravishing beats on epic thrumming Bones. You can watch the lyric video for the STéLOUSE’s expressive new single below. Bones is available for streaming/purchasing, here.

We can always count on Denver’s StéLouse to deliver future bass intoxication to the max, and the now Casablanca Records signed artist has released a full album of sublime feels. The self-titled album features this new single, Plastic, which sees StéLouse uniting with Tennessee producer Pink Slip and SoCal chanteuse Madi for a smoldering future R&B meets chill trap experience. Its embers burn so hot, if there were truly any plastic in the vicinity, it would melt in an instant.

StéLouse’s debut album is available now from iTunes, and it features superb guest artists including Neck Leng, Mascolo, Brave, and more.

I must say, I’m very disappointed in myself for having missed Nick Leng open for POWERS and James Hersey last Friday at Popscene on the Nylon Tour. He was on early and I couldn’t make it out in time. By all accounts, he was incredible. For now, I’ll make do (and quite happily at that) with hearing the milky voiced San Diego resident on this squishy enthralling, vivacious bounding remix of Denver production whiz StéLouse’s ebullient skipping gem Been So Long by Los Angeles’ Christofi. The producer gives Been So Long some summer lift with his indie dance edit. His remix is a departure from some of the nu-disco confections he’s given us in the past. This robust future pop and melodic trap edit is a playful frolic, plus it’s a free download, here.

It’s a satin stirring, bluesy melting electronic affair from Denver as production auteur StéLouse enlists 19 year old singer songwriter Mascolo for his molten vocals on Shivers n Gold. The future soulful, gritty smoldering vibes on his fresh original seem appropriate follow ups to the producer’s exceptional remix of Bryce Fox’s Horns earlier this month. But the velveteen simmering electronica exuding ever so abundantly from Shivers n Gold is even more sleekly chill and molten chic. I find myself assaulted by ‘shivers’ aplenty by this ‘golden’ luscious jam, which comes with a captivating dance video which you can watch below. Download or stream Shivers n Gold via major services and outlets, here.

I’m sure I’m but one of many fans who are wondering what Bryce Fox has been up to lately. We’d like to believe that he’s holed away somewhere, forging more heart pumping, furiously enthralling tunes after having given us songs like Horns and Burn Fast last year. In the meantime, the LA based artist’s music continues to lend itself well to spine tingling remixing. Denver’s STéLOUSE gives us his astonishing interpretation of Horns and proceeds to electrify and jolt us with the raw kicking, spiny lurching trap and bass edit. STéLOUSE’s remix is a grand jarring affair much fitting of sharply tipped horns. The track is a free download, here.

Lovers we all are, our hearts entwined in the groovy lush, voluptuous bouncing limbs of Denver producer STéLOUSE’s seductive new jam. Los Angeles’ BRAVE adds some vocal fire to the hypnotic heater. Lovers is a future funky deep house thriller with copious ZHU vibes in its rotund bass and electro plump beats. There’s even a dash of Daft Punk and a dusting of Kavinsky in this genre defying ear bender. No doubt 2017′s off to a spectacular start for fans of 

STéLOUSE. Snag or stream the song via major services, here.
