“Stay Forever”, the latest single from Catching Flies, continues forward the rapid progression of the London-based producer. Following up a Hype Machine #1 and a spin from Gilles Peterson, “Stay Forever” is simply a brilliant piece of beautiful beats-based electronic music. Subtle cracks in the tape, acoustic guitar washes, sleepy sax all frame an atmosphere brimming with drama and cinema. Catching Flies’ arrow is clearly oriented up. “The Long Journey Home”, the new EP from Catching Flies, is due June 17.
