We welcome Midlands-born DJ and producer, Citizenn, to Nic Fanciulli’s Saved Records this month with brand new single, ‘Stay With Me’, accompanied by a killer remix from label favourite, Black Circle. Taking his name from a passing visual reference in the Manga film Akira, Citizenn, has seen releases on labels including Knee Deep In Sound, W&O Street Tracks, Mobilee, &Friends, Kaluki, Do Not Sleep and ABODE, and his DJ travels have taken him all over the world, from big festivals such as Hideout in Croatia to the Techno legend that is Berghain. ‘Stay With Me’ is indicative of Citizenn’s unique sound, fusing together rolling percussion, moody melancholic vocals, dark and brooding synth lines all held together with an infectious bassline over ominous atmospherics. Black Circle’s remix puts a different spin on the record bringing a more tribal feel to the track offering laidback drum grooves, hypnotic melodic loops, shuffling hats, intricate piano melodies and a grooving low-end to create nothing short of an Afro House masterpiece.
