Hoodboi’s remix of Lido’s ‘Stay With Me’ is a wavy, blissful ocean
Fool’s Gold affiliate, Hoodboi, has served up a smooth-and-silky downtempo remix of his longtime collaborator Lido‘s “Stay With Me,” featuring J’von, from Lido’s 2018 LP, Spacesuit. The two producers’ partnership dates back to 2014, when Hoodboi appeared on the official remix album of Lido’s I Love You EP. They rendezvoused for “Palm Reader” not long after — a decisive breakthrough track for both parties. Sharing an affinity for light, airy aesthetic with deeply nuanced sampling and production skills, it’s not terribly difficult to see why Hoodboi was tempted to transform another Lido production.
In standard Hoodboi fashion, the remix takes the original track’s simple and with seamless splendor introduces his reverb-heavy saxophone-laced translation. The wavy rendition nixes most of J’von’s vocoded vocals, filling the void with intricately-layered instrumentation and a clapping beat.
