Stay Positive "Leipzig"
- Words: Jesse Sussman
- Label: Stay Positive Industries
Although initially believed to be the work of multiple artists, Stay Positive has recently been confirmed as the sole brainchild of London-based producer Matt Farthing. Featured here, the introspective "Leipzig" comes off of Farthing's Blood Brother EP, which is set for a release on July 1 via his new Stay Positive Industries label. The track balances irresistibly catchy rhythms and pitch-shifted vocal samples with wistful breakdowns that recall Burial's penchant for ambiance. However, after "Leipzig" falls to a level of similarly sullen sounds, it cleverly switches gears and makes a run for the dancefloor.
