In a market dominated by 128 BPM dance bombs, the midtempo groove of house legend Frankie Knuckles’ Directors Cut project’s “Let’s Stay Home” is a breath of fresh air. Released on Nocturnal Groove, “Let’s Stay Home” features the soulful vocals of Inaya Day which recall the early 90s dance diva anthems while the production harks back to the best of 70s funk and disco. Directors Cut, the pair consisting of Eric Kupper and America’s Best DJ nominee Frankie Knuckles, also showcase gentle synth work and house piano throughout the track to evoke a lounge vibe.
The single release also features the instrumental of the track, as well as a remix by Tony Humphries, who slightly ups the tempo and brings more of the disco influences of the track to the surface.
“Let’s Stay Home” is released worldwide on August 1st on Nocturnal Grooves. Preview the radio edit above.
