An SSENSE and System collaboration
As far as Henry Krinkle is concerned, it’s summer year-round. At least that’s what his latest effort “Stay” suggests with its sparkling beats, colorful basslines, and lyrics that make it a perfect candidate for a summer anthem. Although the video for “Stay” only just premiered last week on SSENSE, the future-bass number has been on our rotation since last year.
In its short online life, “Stay” has garnered over 23 million plays, and shows no signs of slowing down since Krinkle signed to dance music behemoth Ultra Music earlier this year. Born in Estonia, raised in Florida, and now based out of Shanghai and Los Angeles, Krinkle – real name Edwin Jantunen – took his moniker from Taxi Driver protagonist Travis Bickle’s alias, and has been producing as Henry Krinkle since 2012. Since, he’s worked with Cyril Hahn on last year’s “Perfect Form,” toured with Ryan Hemsworth, and remixed the likes of Ellie Goulding, Joel Compass, and Jacques Lu Cont.
Equally as summer-ready as “Stay,” Henry Krinkle’s mix opens with a unique intro from Leon Vynehall before breaking into upbeat tempos from Chvrches remixed by KDA, and tracks from Booka Shade, Kelis and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. –SSENSE
