Nicky Romero just dropped Festival Mix of his dance-pop crossover single “Stay,” and it’s already making us excited for the upcoming summer season. Romero gives his signature progressive house touch to the track by trading the original’s gentle instrumentals for big room basslines and energetic melodies.
The track’s dreamy vocals still give “Stay” an emotive appeal, while the mix’s upbeat vibes get it dressed and ready for the dance floor. The Protocol boss’s upcoming schedule includes his annual performance at Ultra Music Festival in Miami, so you can cross your fingers to hear this one live!
