The New Mastersounds remix EP



When The New Mastersounds released their new album „Therapy“, the reception made everybody happy. Fans, radio and club Djs as well as the media were delighted. „The music is so good. Are there going to be some remixes or can I actually do one for you?“ people were asking. Said and done, the stems for „I Want You To Stay“ were made available on the world wide web for a month, bucketfuls of remixes were coming in at the Légère headquarters and NMS chose their four favourites for this digital EP. Enjoy and check out the remixers!
