New Sounds: Balay, Sydney & Sam Bhok – StayPut001

Regular hosts at some of Bristol’s most loved venues and long-standing Noods Radio residents, Stay Put are a collective founded and run by Balay, Sydney and Sam Bhok.

The trio, all producers in their own right, recently dropped a three-track EP showcasing their unique styles. 

The EP starts with a debut from Balay, flexing his production skills in the form of the spacey breaks electro cut ‘Fiver’. Next up is Worldwide FM DJ Sam Bhok who delivers a funky stripped-back house groove with ‘Lingon Jam’. The project closes with the Gilles Peterson’s Future Bubblers alumni Sydney who rounds things off nicely with his percussion-driven bass collage ‘Merry’s Pipe Shop’.

Whether you’re in a club (that would be nice) or at home, you’ll be breaking out the freaky deeky moves in seconds of the first note.

Stayput001 is out now as a digital-only release (for now) via Bandcamp. Buy here.
