Rob De Boer isn’t giving up on ‘Please Stay’

Words: Dylan Murphy

It comes ahead of his new EP Early Light, set to drop early 2021.

Irish multi-instrumentalist Rob De Boer is ending 2020 with a bang. Maintaining the momentum developed from his previous dance-inducing single ‘Costa’, Rob has shared ‘Please Stay’.

Featuring meditative opening percussion, the appeal of ‘Please Stay‘ lies its patient build-up that culminates in an energetic crescendo.

Speaking on the track Rob said, “It started as a bedroom demo at the beginning of last year.. I always liked the metallic Latin sounds of those Roland-CR78 drum machines and got a few loops going.. I remember listening to Biig Piig’s tune ‘Perdida’ at the time and liked how it kinda stayed in the same place just alternating between two chords – kinda hypnotic. I patched a similar synth sound on my Juno and went for a lil two chord progression that would set the mood for the song. “

The EP sees De Boer bring together a host of talented musicians including Dylan Lynch, Ryan Hargadon, Paddy Groenland, Nico Sewe, Chris Wong and more.
